Upon pressing 'send' in text messages, the 'sending' bar occasionally gets stuck indefinitely at about 90%, with the message delivered on the first try (though the bar stays stuck), and all subsequent attempts failed. Forcing the app to shut does not help; resetting the phone only brings out the 'failed to deliver' notification with stuck attempts to text again. Resetting network settings has the same effect as resetting the phone, and the only thing that solves it is by restoring the phone.


This happened twice in a month already. Any ideas on what may be causing this? I hate having to spend a few hours restoring everything back to how it was frequently..

iPhone 4, iOS 5.0.1

    there are three methods you could use.  one a little deeper in its effectivness then others.  try em and see what happnes. look below.  




    1. Reboot methods. The first thing to do is try to reboot the iPhone, which you can do by holding the top button and the home button for about ten seconds. In some cases, the iPhone is actually still on, but a bug stops the screen from displaying anything, so you can reverse the problem by doing the reboot. If you still see nothing on the screen, try to plug the iPhone in and again try the reboot methods to see if you can get the screen to display.


    2. Restoring the iPhone. If the iPhone shows up in iTunes, but it still doesn't seem to turn on, it's definitely a display problem. When rebooting fails, you can restore the iPhone from iTunes, and this should fix whatever bugs caused the original issue. Realize that you'll have to reload your music if you restore to another software version. To restore, plug the iPhone in, go into iTunes and click the iPhone's icon on the side of the select screen. Click on the restore button and agree to the prompt asking if you really want to restore the iPhone's software.


    3. Recovery mode. You can put the iPhone into recovery mode if it has a charged battery by holding down the home button before connecting it to iTunes, then continuing to hold the button until iTunes recognizes that the iPhone's in recovery mode. Recovery mode is a bare-bones way of booting the iPhone that allows you to perform a restore when you're dealing with a serious issue such as the iPhone failing to turn on or display anything on its screen.
