iPhone 3GS - Message Send Failure

Hi All,

Recently i acqiured a iPhone 3gs as a replacement for me Lg Smartphone. It all worked snappy and then one day last week when trying to send a message to a 2degrees person, the progress bar got about 90% done, and then it holds there, and then says message send failure with a red exclamation mark. So i thought ok. Then i tried messaging another 2 people, each with a vodafone sim and vodafone handset. And it doesnt work for those two Only 5 of my 20 contacts work now, and the majority being vodafone.. Could it be my sim packing up on me? I'm Not Sure. But i would like some help based this way becasue ios5 and ios 4.3.3 had this probelem aswell, thats why i upgraded.

Cheers in advancement,

Alex

No way it's SIM related as the SIM is only used to ID a subscriber onto the mobile network

Hi Alex.

You can try doing a network reset. Many other things to look for on the Iphone that can cause this issue. Otherwise please call 0800921021 so we can look at this for you

Well that shows it's not the SIM card and shows it's not the network, So really does not leave much else

Good morning,
Did you PM Mary?
When sending the message is it failing to send as an iMessage or SMS? (iMessage appears in Blue, SMS in green).

Regards
