    My mother doesn't really use her iPhone much at home and prefers to do all her SMS and calls through her iPad. SMS works for a little while until it ends up hanging on sending with the green bar across the top always getting stuck at around 80%. Then, I end up going to her iPhone and looking at her messages and the ones that are stuck sending show up on the iPhone, but they don't say they're sent or delivered. We have excellent service at our house, so that shouldn't be a problem.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this? I've already tried hard rebooting both devices and disabling and enabling text message forwarding between them, but the problem still persists. I'm hoping it doesn't come down to restoring both of them, but I'm desperate for a fix since she complains to me about it almost everyday.

    I've been having the same issue, not sure if it is due to enabling t-mobile's wifi calling or what.

    I've also seen this on my iPhone when using T-Mobile Wifi. Never seen it on cellular.

    I, too, have been having this issue lately. Seems to be just with SMS/MMS (non-iMessage texts). I am on AT&T so doesn't seem to be just a T-Mobile issue. For example, my husband has an android phone but we're both on the same plan with AT&T and if i text from ipad to him the texts just keep saying "sending" atvabout 80-85% like what OP has described. Very frustrating.
