Today, my Lumia 920 developed a problem where I can type a text message but the SEND button will not send the message. And often times, I click on the messaging app and it will act like it is opening but go back to start screen. Right now, I cannot send or even receive text messages. If I reboot, I can get messages that were went to be but I still cannot send.
If I exit the app and go back into it, sometimes it will just sit on CONNECTING and never connect. Is this connecting to SMS service, messenger or both?
If I go into a thread and since I can't send, I exit back, it will show NO MESSAGES under threads.
Also, if I try to delete a thread, it will just sit on "Deleting Thread"...
I've rebooted several times today with no luck. I am also getting false new mail notifications as well but not sure if it is related.

Back when I was on a Samsung Captivate, I had a problem where I could not send MMS messages. SMS's would work great, but MMS's would always fail. Turns out it was a problem with my account, something left over from the iPhone 3GS config I swapped from.
So I'd contact your provider, ask them for help. They may have you do a reset on your phone, so make sure your stuff is backed up before you call.

I don't think you're alone - something has happened today that is causing all sorts of weird things. Not just on Lumia 920 or US networks either, but around the world it seems. Suggest you go to this threat and post your details to Microsoft:
Text Message "Can't Send" in WP8 - Microsoft Community
My phone started with the same issue but has now extended beyond text to email and now all the Hubs (people, calendar, music). Everything is starting to malfunction.

I have this problem too and other bugs. I shall uninstall Skype and see what happens...
Uninstalled Skype, emails came through but still experiencing many problems, like...
Unable to send / recieve text messages. Not recieving emails. Opening apps are sending me straight back to home screen. Become extremely slow at loading. Games are crashing. This is all out of the blue, my 920 has worked wonderfully for a week...

I don't think it really relates to Skype. I have had no issue with it. My issue is that my wife has the same phone and can't delete text or send. Send and receive seem to be directly related to wether u set yourself to available or not. So if you set it to unavailable then you can't send or receive text msgs. But the deleting of msgs makes no sense at all. I learned real quick....don't start music then plug a headset or speakers in, it kills all sound. What exactly is everyone setting in the msg app? What about email accounts? Microsoft is trying to connect all these accounts and I am wondering if that is causing a hiccup in the system. I noticed gmail didn't play friendly the first time I set it up, so I deleted it and added it back. Been fine since.

i got the same issues.
Text, Mail Accounts, me-Hub... they all send me back to the homescreen. Sometimes i come through, but texts are send randomly. Sometimes i can't send at all.
I don't recieve Mails and Texts right away.
I had Skype installed. Uninstalling it brought no help.
Problem started when i changed my plan on my carrier to LTE (yesterday)
MS Account seem to be stuck in "syncing" when i check the settings

My wife has been having this issue with her 822 where she did not receive text notifications, her accounts were stuck in "syncing" and her phone did not show contact name and picture when receiving/making a call.
So far she has uninstalled Skype, unpinned the Phone and Message apps, and restarted her phone. It seems to be working correctly now, but we will see how long that lasts.
