Well, at least you found a way to solve your problems.

SMS isn't sent over data network...I have no idea what's wrong with Vodafone. Have you tried sending SMS with 3G/4G completely off?

If you're using hangouts I think you need data on

I tried sending SMS with 3G/4G completely off and its quicker too, so with 2G or 3G the SMS are delivered quicker than on 4G. Its odd but its happening. For now I'll keep my phone in 3G. Thank you all for the help!
