thanks warrior - seems that can actually work! - it doesn't work if it's a small text and just shoots through -BUT - for longer messages and certainly anything with a photo etc., i tried it and i did have time to go to settings and hit the airplane mode - and guess what - it worked!. back to messages and it comes up "this message can not be sent in airplane mode" - so that's the best tip so far for sure and if really quick, and its an emergency seems it can get you out of hot water! thanks bud
Glad to help :)

Sometimes it's the simplest of things that people overlook.

P.S stop cheating on your partner lol (JOKE)

The OP immediately reminded me of that that a Seinfeld episode where George tries to retrieve a phone message from a girls house.

Of course, with Jerry's help.

Here's how I do it..

When the message is sending, quickly press 'Edit' (on top right of screen) tick the dot to the left of the sending message and press 'Delete'.

Works for me anyway. Hope this helps!

If you had that option to stop it you would complain that you hit it accidentally all the time. How many of you type a message hit send and then lock the phone. Than while you are getting mad the other person is not responding you go to that conversation again and find out you actually never sent the last text.

I had the Delay send tweak for email and when I had bitesms, I loved having the delay feature. Had mine at 2.5 seconds. Wish it was a native ability.
