    Not sent, stored in Outbox! Hard times.

      So I've been getting the message "Not sent, stored in Outbox!" a lot. Though I know sometimes it does this because I'm out of range of service or something, it's been doing this for what seems to me as no reason. This only happens with one particular contact who lives in a different country (I'm in the US, the contact is in Canada.) I'm wondering if that's part of it. However, at first, I was able to send messages to this person, and it was working fine. Then at some point after a few texts were sent, I was repeatedly given this message no matter what. I tried resending messages and typing different ones to make sure it wasn't a recognition issue or something. I also tried sending the message by using the number itself instead of the stored contact. Nothing has worked. I'd like to know how to fix this.
