Messages failed to send only to some numbers

All I get is a note saying "Message failed to send". No explanation as to why.  This only happens with numbered contacts.  For example, to text to Starbucks Rewards, you text to 811811.  This fails every time. Our gas company has a text alert system - Used to use this one all the time - to report power outages, and check on the status of outages.  That one fails now also.

HELP!

Cyndirtig, I definitely see how this is negatively affecting you. We want you to be able to use those cool text features we all love. It sounds like you are only having issues with using short codes for applications and sites. Are you having these issues when you text any of your normal contacts? When did this start?

Not having issues texting anyone else. Old or new contacts.

I'm having the exact same problem. Disappointed that the answer wasn't public.
