Can't send messages right now. Too many unsent messages

My Droid Maxx keeps giving me this message "can't send message right now.  Too many unsent multimedia messages."  This happens if I'm on wifi and on 4G.  I've tried restarting the phone.  Is there a way to cancel these messages?  How do I fix it?

Have you tried clearing  out all your messages,and then restore them to only delete them again??

You said unsent, so do you have lots of drafts just lingering in your phone? Those are unsent messages right??

These are texts, so is there a draft folder? I thought that only happened with emails.

Thanks. I passed these onto my boyfriend who is having the problem. He said that putting it on airplane mode and then taking it off airplane mode allowed him to send them but he still gets the message.

Yes, you can have drafts in the text message application. In the default messaging app (not Verizon Messages+ app), there will note in the saying draft in red in each conversation containing one when you view the conversation list for all the conversations.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

It doesn't show as a draft. It just says "sending".

Other suggestions?

The MMS messages needs 4G/3G network to send if you are not using the Verizon Messages+ application. It is possible the MMS messages are too large to send as well so they just keep attempting to send instead of failing. The other possibility is the intended recipient has your number blocked preventing it from being sent.

Thanks. We were able to fix by returning to factory settings and then restoring.
