iPhone 4 send SMS failure.

I know there's been a lot of talk about iPhone 4 signal issues and "Holding it wrong" but am I the only one that has trouble sometimes sending SMS messages. The phone can be on my desk with full signal, I hit send and the progress bar gets to 95% and just hangs there.

It's not until I put the phone into airplane mode and take it back out again (or turn the device off then on) that the message will send properly.

I've tried resetting the Cellular Data settings because I heard that might help but it doesn't seem to have solved the problem.

Any help you can give would be great!

iPhone 4 send SMS failure.

3g or 2g area?

If 3g it could be the major conjestion issue try turning 3g off and see what happens the message should send straight away if it is the 3g issue.
