Can't send SMS messages

Can receive texts. Can send and receive MMS. Can call and receive calls.
But not able to send text messages. Network needs to be checked.. please.
Need this resolved but wait times are too long on 24/7 chat and have spent way too long this month resolving issues already... and yes, I have tried rebooting the phone.
Anyone else can help me????

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
