Texts not sending. Specific cause code and error class.

Hey all,

I am trying to send text messages but for about 5 hours it has not let me send anything. It says General Error, upon asking for details it says Cause Code: 65535 and Error Class 3.

I cannot find my manual and am not sure what these mean or what I can do to fix it.

Any and all help would be appreciated! Thank you!
