After updating to iOS 5, I cannot reply to a text message from non iPhone users. iMessage works fine. In order to actually reply to a text, I have to go into my contacts and hit "Send Message"...and it will work. I've also found that sometimes, if I hit reply immediately after receiving a text, it might go through. Otherwise, it just times out. It is driving me crazy, any help is appreciated.

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, see the FAQ.
This could be the result of being in an area with poor reception but good wifi. It could also be a problem with your SIM card or phone. Try taking your phone to your carrier and describe the problem and see if they can check your phone or SIM card for problems. If that doesn't work try taking your phone into Apple to see if they can find anything wrong with it.
