Darlenetucker,


Staying in touch with family is a must.  Let's work together to ensure those messages are flowing as they should.  What message app do you use?  Also, are you connected to Wi-Fi or our network when sending and receiving messages?

Is it the red messaging icon Verizon Messages - Android Apps on Google Play or a different application?

Try disabling the Verizon Messages application and using the true default text message application called Messaging from Samsung.

Thank you so much for those wonderful details, Darlentucker. I'm pretty confident that we'll be able to get you back up and running with no issues. Are you able to call your mother without any issues? Does it show that the message that you try to send her goes through? Or do you end up getting an error? Please keep us posted.

Darlenetucker, we don't want this to be an ongoing problem. Let's make sure that this isn't a memory capacity issue. Try deleting all unwanted text messages, power your device off/on and try to send her a text message again.
