Text message status shows "sending message" 12 hours later?

I tried sending a text to my friend last night, and I was surprised that I still hadn't received a response today. Then I look at the text, and it shows the status is still sending message?

I tried resending it, but the status was still sending message. So then I restarted my phone, and it now says status unknown?

How can I tell if my message has or has not been sent???

Usually not, that happens to me every now and again.

I just long press on the message that's still "sending" which pulls up the menu to delete it. Then I just re-type it and re-send it.

In my experience it never sends.......
