I am having problems sending text messages from my Iphone 3GS.

the loading bar above the text screen hangs up around 90% and usually takes 4-5 attempts before the message is sent. I am not having any problem with incoming text messages. Is this a problem with the phone or 3.0 or should i contact AT&T about the problem

iPhone OS 3.0

    Of the six people I know who have a new iPhone, none of them (including me) are having any trouble sending texts. I'd call AT&T.

    My bet is, it's s system problem, NOT your phone.

    I'm having the same problem. I have an iphone 3G and before the OS 3 upgrade, while sending text messages the bar at the top reaches about 90% and stops but this happened sometimes. Usually the message was sent. BUT, now after the OS 3 upgrade i can't text to some people while i can text some people. I've had this problem since the OS 3 upgrade. I tried calling my courier and they said something in the sms settings was changed. I don't live in the US. Also i tried restoring 4 times and still the same.

    I had the same problem. I could be wrong but I beleive it has something to do with the 3G network because as soon as I disabled 3G on my phone the problem went away. Hopefully that helps temporarily till AT&T or Apple (or both depending on the cause of the problem) get the fix.

    I just spent an hour on the phone with Apple and AT&T. We are having this problem with 3 brand now 3Gs phones. Texts start to send, get frozen around 90%, and then fail. We're also having lots of problems with dropped calls. AT&T says we're "in between two cell phone towers", but my old 3G phone has no problem at all calling or sending/receiving texts. I'm contemplating returning the phones. It's clearly not an AT&T problem if the 3G phone works and the 3GS phones don't.
