I had problems yesterday (Monday) texting to another vodafone number.
I was getting a 'message sending failed', err message, which just kept
appearing. I eventually tried to call the other number, but got an
'error in connection' message repeatedly!!! Don't know if this is
related, but I eventually resolved it by power-cycling and it sorted
itself after that.
