Messages stuck in "Sending" status

I’m currently using the Samsung Galaxy S7, and every now and again, I’ll send an MMS (usually a screenshot less than 1 MB in size,) and the message will get hung up in the “Sending” status. The recipient never gets it and I’m unable to delete it (message options are just “Message info.”) Restarting my phone doesn’t work, switching on and off of Wi-Fi networks doesn’t work, nothing works; I’m just stuck re-sending the same message until one finally goes through or, worst case, I don’t notice when this happens and something I thought I sent to someone hours ago never actually left my phone. A little help??

Xprimentyl, we want this to work for you. Are you using a third party text message or the messaging feature on your device? Are you connected to Wi-Fi when you have this issue? Did you recently update the software on your phone?

There are a few different ways that we may be able to fix this. First, I would recommend a network sync to start. Please send us a Private Message to get started.
