MarthaBailey, we don't want you to miss another text message! Are you connected to Wi-Fi when you have this issue? If so, disable Wi-Fi in Settings>Wi-Fi. Next, delete all unwanted text messages to ensure that this isn't a memory capacity issue. Power your device off/on and text the text messaging feature again. We're standing by to further assist you.
