I can't send or receive txt messages while on wifi.  Wifi works . . . I can use the internet.  Messages just won't go out or come through until I have cellular service.  I use messages+.  Can anyone help??

MERHOL82,

We definitely want you to be able to send and receive text messages on Wi-Fi. Let's work together to come to a resolution.

Please provide further details: Is cellular service available in your home? Do you have cellular data disabled on your device?

What type of messages are you attempting to send over Wi-Fi? Is it all messages, or to and from a particular user? Have you attempted to use any other Messaging apps and sned/receive over Wi-Fi?

I know the importance of staying connected on the right network, MERHOL82. While in Message+ please make sure Integrated Messaging is enabled via Menu>Settings>Integrated Messaging.

Having this issue as well.  Cellular data works fine in my house, and other places where I am on Wifi and can't send/receive texts.  I can stand in the exact same spot, turn off Wifi and the text will send.  I looked for the integrated messaging option mentioned above but couldn't find it.  Possible that was for an old version of the app?  Messaging on other apps such as Facebook messenger works fine over Wifi.  Just not Message+

Being able to send messages over Wi-Fi is very convenient, we are sorry to see you are having trouble. Are you only having trouble with the Messages+ application? Have you tried connecting to different Wi-Fi connections?  GeorginaG_VZW
