"Message send failure"

After 2 weeks of iPhone ownership my phone has developed a problem. I cannot send text messages to some contacts. The bar moves most of the way over whilst sending, then all I get is a red exclamation mark beside the text where it hasn't sent. Then a message saying "message send failure".

I can send to other contacts but this one in particular will not send ( I obviously haven't tried to send to all my contacts). I have sent texts to this number from my iPhone in the past, I know the number is correct, so what can be wrong?

are you trying to attach a file that's too big to send as MMS?

No, just a simple SMS message.

The problem has gone now. It seems that on Samsung phones it is easy to block contacts (especially if you don't know that you're doing anyway). This may have been the case.
