Error code 98 when trying to send a text.

This happens with only 1 of my contacts. I am able to text everyone else fine. I have tried 3 different messaging apps. I have tried to power cycle my phone. I have been trying to text this person every other day for about a week, so where I am physically at or when I am trying to send it does not matter. I tried sending with a 1+ area code+ number and area code+ number. Nothing works.

Suggestions?

The problem was on his end. He had to go to the Verizon store and get something reset.

Can this person text you?  Have you tried replying to one of their texts?  Could this person possibly have blocked you?

Gumbydpl, we appreciate your efforts in trying to resolve this issue on your own. Has the owner of that mobile number tried reaching out to their wireless provider to ensure that there's no restrictions for sending text messages to your mobile number?
