My iPhone is not sending text messages through. It will take a long time to send (progressing the little bar at top very slowly), then it says "Message not Delivered". Why and how can I resolve this?

  • I have had this issue when I use certain people's wi-fi; however, in the case of cellular I'm not sure. – L.B. Dec 22 '14 at 16:17
  • Do you have functional internet connectivity? Do you receive texts? Did your Apple ID change? – James T Snell Dec 22 '14 at 16:24
  • Could be your sim card, you can check if that is the problem at a telecom provider – Jules Dec 22 '14 at 17:54
  • 1. Does it work with some people and not others? 2. Have you tried rebooting your phone? – samh Dec 22 '14 at 18:53

I had the same problem, there are two things you can try:

  • It is possible that your carrier's network is having problems. The best course of action is to see whether the problem goes away after a day or two
  • Have the person you are trying to message send you a message to your phone and reply then to see whether this fixes the connection issues
