I can only text verizon numbers

For some reason on my moto x 2nd gen i can only sms text other verizon numbers. I can receive sms texts from any other carrior and i can also send mms messages to any provider but not sms. I dont want to use up all my data trying to text people.

Re: I can only text verizon numbers

While MMS messages do use data, it's minimal. You can monitor it's use via settings>usage I'm sure.

What happens when you try to send SMS to non Verizon customers? How many non Verizon customers have you tried to SMS? Are you using the stock Message+ App or a third party app?
