Having intermittent issues sending text messages between our 4 iphones of various models over the last couple of weeks. The progress bar will reach about 90% and then stall. Eventuall the "not delivered" text shows.
Cycling the radios by toggling Airplane mode seems to get the message to deliver. Sometimes it requires cycling multiple times.
The iphones are 5 and 5s models. Some are running iOS7 and some are iOS8, so that rules out blaming it on the new OS release.
Anyone else seeing this behavior? It's highly frustrating since messaging normally works very well.
*Ninja Update* - Phone switched from LTE to 4G and now text messages go through no problem. Maybe my LTE signal is too weak? Data works on LTE, however. Strange. Will update if things change again.
Hi - I'm having this issue also. It started this morning (16 October); now I cannot send text messages. Progress reaches 95% and then abruptly fails. I have powercycled my phone, switched to airplane mode several times, toggled iMessage, and still I get the failure. My data works (I'm streaming music now over LTE). Is there an issue with the SMS gateway?
I'm having the same problem with my new iphone 5c I recently purchased for my child. She can't text me after school because the message won't go through. Her texts reach her other contacts, just not me!
