In this section, we have listed and discussed some of the major reasons why your message is stuck on Sent.
1. Recipient Is Offline
If the recipient is offline then KiK will only show S beside your message.
It could be that the recipient is unable to coke online at that moment or their data has run out or they are in a place with no internet.
All these can be the reason why you might be seeing that your message is stuck on Sent.
2. Recipient Has Blocked You
If the recipient had blocked you then also you will not be able to see any activity and your message will be stuck on S and will not get delivered.
As KiK does not notify you when someone has blocked you there is no way of knowing for sure whether you have been blocked.
However, if you see your message remain stuck on Sent and, not get delivered for a long time then the chances are that you have been blocked by the other person.
You can try to add them in a group chat and if you are unable to then they have blocked you for sure.

In case the recipient had deleted KiK then also you will not be able to get your message delivered to their account and your message will remain sent but not delivered.
Sometimes people will delete KiK as there might be some problem due to which they had to delete the app.
But if that does happen then you will not be able to see your message gets delivered.
