Anyone else having issues sending messages? My iPhone 4s hasn't been sending iMessages to someone for almost a week and my friend just told me that he received 3 messages from me that I sent more than a day ago.
As I use my phone for work, this isn't helping me at all!

If it is an imessage, then it could be an Apple server issue and not a cellular network if you can google stuff normally and the imessage was indeed sent

Data and WiFi are both fine.
They say delivered, but the recipient never got a message. All of the contact info is fine.

is it the same recepient all the time? If this is the case, then it might be a problem with this person receiving messages, and not with you sending.

On your phone, do you have it checked so that if there is no data/wifi connection that they send as sms. This could be the problem (settings, messaging, send as sms - this may change depending on your phone but it gives you an idea of where to look).

Have these people switched from an iphone to a different phone - many issues occur when people switch from an iphone to a different phone (you would still be trying to send to their apple id, but they no longer have imessaging on their phone)

If these do not work, try giving tech support a call - better to call from another line because one of the troubleshooting steps includes putting your phone in flight mode - the number is 1-866-995-6636 or if you have no other phone, try *611
