When I try to send a message it says "sending". I can send text messages. Help! I also know of two other people who have this problem today. iPhone 5 users are we.

I can not send messages only text from my iPhone 5. It's the same case for a couple of my friends. Started today.

Hey laurafrommilwaukee,
Thanks for the question. I understand you are experiencing issues sending iMessages. The following article may help to resolve your issue:

http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2755
You may also want to reset your network settings:
Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.
Note: this will delete any network related settings (saved Wi-Fi passwords, etc), it will not erase any content from your device.
Thanks,
Matt M.

    Odds are only someone that develops apps for iOS would have access to whatever this is and, even then, this information may still not be available.
    I would do a backup of your phone & then erase it and restore from the backup to see if the odd behavior goes away. If so, something went funny with your update the first time around. If not, there's something in your backup that's making the phone throw a fit.
    I resolved my battery issues (more or less) by disabling the "set date/time automatically" setting. I haven't re-enabled it yet but my battery life has been much better with it off.

  • When I click on a PDF, such as a product manual, the PDF wont display. (FF8.0 and Acrobat 9.0). Dont have this problem with IE9.08. thx

    when I click the PDF link, I get a pop-up from Acrobat with a 'question mark'. thx

    Hi Gary,
    I have seen this issue occur with users who have this registry setting missing or have improper permissions.
    When you double click the attachment to launch the pdf it is saved and opened from the temporary folder unless saved specifically to a location.
    If you dont have the below mentioned registry key or improper permissions then attachments fail to open.
    Please  heck if the following reg key exists:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Security
    or
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Security
    Value Name: OutlookSecureTempFolder
    If the value exists, and if the value contains a valid path, Outlook 2010 uses that location for its temporary files.
    If the registry value does not exist, or if the value points to an invalid location, Outlook 2010, Outlook 2007, or Outlook 2003 creates a new subdirectory under the Temporary Internet Files directory and then puts the temporary file in the new subdirectory. The name of the new subdirectory is unknown and is randomly generated, depending on your version of Outlook.
    Please check the following key:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Security
    Note the location for: OutlookSecureTempFolder key
    Check if the same folder exists in the following location and if not create a corresponding folder in the location on C:\Users\<User account name>\Appdata\Local\Software\Microsoft\Windows\......

  • HT204053 i have 2 phones on my apple id account since setting up i cloud yesterday all text messages i send or receive to other people who have iphones are showing on both phones

    I have 2phones on my apple id account. since setting up ios6 yesterday and icloud i have discovered that if i send or receive messages to other iphones those messages appear on both phones. how can i alter this

    This is the intent of having multiple devices connected to the same icloud account - they are all kept in sync.  If you don't want certain features kept in sync, then turn off the services on one device (Settings>icloud), but there is no option of that for messages.

  • TS4605 App will not download even though it is listed in my purchases .when I try to redownload app it just says open. Can't redownload.

    How canI download an app which refuses to download? It states in my purchases that I have the app. But it does'nt appear on my iPad.

    If it has 'open' against it then that implies that it is already installed on your iPad .If you can't find it on any of your homescreens (there is a limit of 11 after which apps are accessible via the spotlight search screen) or app folders, then can you find it via the spotlight search screen (swipe your first home screen to the right) ?
    If not then have you tried a reset to see if you can find it after the iPad has restarted ? Press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot.

    Hello apple
    I have the problem with my iPhone and my friends have this problem too.
    My iPhone have the problem about calling and answer the call. When I use my iPhone to call I can't hear anything from my iPhone but the person that I call can answer it but when answer both of us can't hear anything and when I put my iPhone to my face the screen is still on and when I quit the phone application and open it again it will automatic call my recent call. And when my friends call me my iPhone didn't show anything even the missed call I'm only know that I missed the call from messages from carrier. Please check these problem I restored my iPhone for 4 time now in this week. I lived in Hatyai, Songkhla,Thailand and many people in my city have this problem.
    Who have this problem??

    Apple isnt here. this is a user based forum for technical questions. The solution is to restart, reset, and restore as new which is in the manual after that get it replaced for hard ware failure. if your within your one year warranty its replaced if it is out of the warranty then it is 199$

  • How do I stop Firefox from creating untitled web pages when I try to send email from a web page. The only way I have found is to turn the computor off and then reboot. I don't have this problem when using Internet Explorer

    Every time I click on a web site that has an email option the browser starts making untitled web pages and never stops unless I turn the computer off. It is very frustrating to not be able to use an email option when offered by a web site. The only way I can send email messages on the Firefox browser is to go into my hotmail acct. and copy and paste the addresses. I don't have this problem when I use the Internet Explorer browser.

  • I get error message: not enough space to download when I try to buy a tv series on Itunes. It tells me to delete photos or videos to make space, but I have no photos and videos. Help?

    I get error message: not enough space to download when I try to buy a tv series on Itunes. It tells me to delete photos or videos to make space, but I have no photos and videos. Help?

    I would guess that a TV series takes up a fair amount of storage capacity. It is just a standard message I think that may indicate that you are actually running low on storage space.
    If you go to Settings>General>About how many GBs are specified as being available?  If you are low on space maybe deleting some apps may help.

  • When I try to open video files purchased through iTunes in Quicktime, I get the message: 'Error 23132: an unknown error occurred. This never happened until I updated iTunes, but when I try to go back to the previous version, I still get the message.

    When I try to open video files purchased through iTunes in Quicktime, I get the message: 'Error 23132: an unknown error occurred. This never happened until I updated iTunes, but when I try to go back to the previous version, I still get the message. It is more convenient for me to play videos in Quicktime since iTunes is such a memory hog. Please help.

    You may get better results if you switch to this alternate version: iTunes for Windows (64-bit - for older video cards) and, if needed, reinstall QuickTime. The new (nearly) all 64-bit version doesn't seem to play well with QuickTime. Perhaps if DRM authentication is required QuickTime needs to be able to see something that is part of the older 32-bit code.
