Thank you for reaching out to us, talilerner. We understand the importance of having a working device. Let's look into why you cannot send out text messages. We need a little more information. What messaging applicaion were you using? What messaging application are you using now? Is your Wi-Fi turned off or on?

I was using Telegram but I tried switching back to google messages and to the native HTC messages app that came with the phone, none worked
I tried while on WiFi and on data, did not make a difference
I tried reseting the phone, turning data off and on and it did not work either
Correction: I was using Signal for SMS and Telegram for group messaging. The telegram is still working and the signal is what stopped working
