Texts stuck on sending

Within the past 2 weeks or so I've been having trouble sending texts (plain texts), I'm using the stock messaging app, when I go to text someone it'll say "sending" and it'll stay that way for anywhere between 5 - 20 minutes before actually sending the text. I've also had trouble receiving texts, sometimes receiving them hours after my friends have texted me.

What kind of coverage are you showing on your phone? (How many bars of service)  Usually when I have seen that (with Sprint anyway) it was due to crappy coverage in my current location.  Next time it happens try moving around or going outside and see if that has any effect.

Let's get you up and running with text messages omerc10696. I appreciate all the details provided that will help us get to the bottom of your messaging concerns. What make and model phone are you using? To ensure there are no reported issues in the area, can you provide us with your zip code? Do you experience issues with sending messages everywhere you go or only in this certain area?

Thank You,

I am using a LG G3, my zip code is 11426. I've had the issue regardless of where I am, I live in Queens NY, I've been to the city (Manhattan), long island, and other places in Queens and continuously experience this issue.

I should probably mention that my data in general is fine, I can send messages on facebook messenger, go on the internet etc (with and without wifi)

Time to get that messaging issues resolved omerc10696 because we know its an important functionality. Have you tried deleting all old/long text threads you no longer need. Do you have issues with sending when not at home? Does it happen to a specific contact or randomly?
