I have an iPhone 5s and once every few weeks my texts will stop sending.

I'll receive an error message when I try to send them out, it doesn't matter if I'm sending an imessage or regular text. I can receive imessages and SMS and make outgoing calls (I haven't tested to see if I can receive incoming calls). It happens randomly and will happen both when I have a good LTE signal or am connected to wifi.

Does anyone else have this problem, or know why it happens and how to combat it?

Hello rdwarrick!
I'm sorry for any intermittent issues with your iPhone 5s with making calls and sending messages. You mentioned that it happens randomly. When did this begin? do you notice any pattern at all, like a specific location, specific contacts, anyone with a certain carrier? Is there anything at all that you notice this being an issue? Please share some additional details with me.

I have the same problem with my 5c. How do you get your msg to turn back on?
