Problem with iphone 4s messaging

Randomly there are texts that get held back and wont be sent until later that day or even days later. This has happened to a few of the people I have texted that I know of and text enough to realize there is a problem. On my phone it shows that the text was sent though. any one else experiencing this or know a solution to this?

I notice this issue only when I am trying to message someone with an Iphone. If they are on 5.0 or 5.0.1 the new OS for iphone if they are in an area or if you're in an area and do not have a data connection or have good coverage it will try to convert the message to a standard text message instead of an Imessage.

 

 

If its someone that is not using an iphone and your still having the problem try just a simple reboot. Turn the phone off and power it back on.

More often than not, an unreceived text that shows as successfully sent from your phone is a network issue.

Don't know about iMessages, although I can tell when an iPhone user receives my text, but out of a data zone. But that can mean that the iPhone is turned off, too (I think).
