This is so annoying it makes me want to kill someone

Basically, my Samsung Galaxy S won't send sms messages. Sometimes it randomly does, but about 80% of the time when I try to sms someone it says "sending" in the bottom right after clicking the buttons to send someone, and it never sends. I have no idea what's wrong, I have downloaded only a few harmless applications and I've had this phone for like 7 days. I tried googling this problem but found no help. The "sending..." status never changes to anything, it just stays that way and never sends anything. I'm in a major capital so network shouldn't be an issue.

This only occurs when I write long messages. After I reach some amount of characters it says "converting to multimedia message..." and every single time it fails after this. Help please?

Usually messages have no limit on the length, what normally happens is it sends the messages separately. But, then again, your network may have limitations on this so the phone's forced to convert to MMS, which uses data services.

For MMS to work, the settings have to be in order. Go to settings>wireless and network>mobile networks>access point names. Check what you have on there with your carrier. If all's well, make sure you have data network activated and try sending an MMS. It should work at that point.
