Exclamation iMessage messages not sending after iOS 7 upgrade

Anyone else having an issue with iMessage after upgrading to iOS 7?

For some reason, my iMessages have been having spotty successful sending rates after upgrading to iOS 7. All messages don't send through iMessage and I have to resend the messages as text messages in order for them to go through. If I restart my phone, for some reason that helps with messages being sent as iMessage, but after a while, it goes back to not working.

I'm on an iPhone 5 Verizon.

Hope I'm not the only one having an issue with this...quite annoying...

I had this problem. Turning off iMessages, waiting a bit and turning it back on resolved it.

I noticed the problem after upgrading to 7.0.2. I have a Sprint iPhone 5 and the iMessages would sit in a sending status for a long time. I never waited long enough to see what happened as I just deleted the messages while they were in sending status.

Rebooting the phone helped me but Im curious if the problem will persist.

Have not updated to 7.0.2 yet, but noticing this on my iPhone 5 w/ 7.0 installed. Seeing it only happen with group messages so far. Only solution I've found is to restart the phone which for me is difficult to do as my lock button is broken.

Hoping Apple puts out another patch release to fix this, can be rather annoying.

I thought it was just me. I'm having the same problem and like someone above, rebooting the phone fixes it for me (even if only temporarily) - but turning iMessage off and on doesn't fix it for me.

Same issue. AT&T iPhone 5 on 7.0.2. The problem just started today and was working fine since I updated to 7.0.2 last week. Occurs with both single and group messages. Restarting fixed it for now.

Same here. I wonder if this is server side triggering an iOS 7 bug? I see TONS of people on Twitter bitching about it if you search for "iMessage".

EDIT: I bet iMessage is supposed to timeout after failing to send, and this timeout is broken. So they get stuck forever in the sending state. You think this sort of **** would be caught in unit testing, but nooo.

I too had this issue yesterday and just reset network settings and that seemed to fix it until it happened again today. I reset the network settings again to fix. Let me try the previously posted fix now!

It is quite annoying! I'm hoping I don't have any further problems after my last reset of network settings.

I've turned my phone on and off at least 9 times and have reset my network settings multiple times within the last week. This is not a suitable workaround, and hopefully Apple takes notice and corrects the problem.

I'm certain it will be fixed as it's an obvious bug many are experiencing.

However, I'm still disappointed at Apple. There is no excuse for this bug in a release product.
