    Hi, can anyone help me please? I have an iPhone 5s and most i messages do not come through when I am on my home WiFi. The messages come through instantly on my iPad connected to the same WiFi. My wife and daughter both have 5s on the home wifi and their messages come through fine! I find if I turn the wifi of and use 3G it is fine.
    Very frustrating, does can anyone help please?

    First of all, make sure yore connected to Wi-Fi and can browse the web. If so, go to Settings>Messages and then disable iMessage. After a few seconds, re-enable iMessages. After iMessage has been activated, scroll down to the "Send & Receive" section and tap on it. Make sure the "You Can Be Reached By iMessage At" and 'Start New Conversations From" option have the same Apple ID checked.
