Momof3handsomeboys That information is extremely helpful, and we want to learn more about the situation. The error message "Recipient has insufficient funds to receive the message." does not affect your plan or your usage, but we want to investigate more. Are you receiving multiple messages with the same information? Did you and your husband receive the message at the same time? Share details.

If this helps Verizon at all:

 

-I also get this message, starting on 10/26/2019

-I have had to blocked many spam numbers over a few years, but more recently (this year) I blocked numbers close to my own, as in the first 6 digits are the same. 

-My mom, dad, and I all have Verizon service. My mom and I are on the same plan, but my dad has his own plan.

-All of us get spam calls close to our own numbers.

-I am the only one so far to receive this message from my own number.

- I have blocked a few numbers about a month ago that were all in a group chat and had numbers similar to mine. I don't have the numbers specifically since I deleted the group message.

-I haven't received this message anymore (yet) since the 26th.

Same. Started this morning, coming from my own number (but not showing as sent from my phone).  I don't have any blocked numbers. Note 10+.  The only thing I did this morning was install the latest security update.

I am receiving the same message.  All of my texts seem to be going through.  I got 6 of these messages this am within two hours.  They all come from my number.  I am able to send and receive messages with no problem.  It began 3 days ago.  I have had this happen before, but never in this quantity.

ejmack, we want to make sure we get to the bottom of this for you. Can you tell me what steps you've taken thus far to help with this? Have you tried to power the device off and back on? ChetonJ_VZW

This is happening to me since I created a bitmoji... when I text one. The recipient seems to get them, so why am I receiving these texts?
