Recipient has insufficient funds to receive message.

This just started yesterday. 

It's a text to myself. 

I have not blocked anyone. 

It just keeps sending from me over and over. 

"Recipient has insufficient funds to receive message."

This started happening on my account last night, but only in our family group text message (MMS). There are 4 of us in the group chat. The 3 of us that are on Verizon all get messages from ourselves. My oldest daughter is on another provider and she does not get the message. I can text my wife or either one of my daughters as a single person to person message and none of us get the message. This only happens in our group message. This is getting very annoying. I don't know what updates happened that have caused this, but several things happened with the update that have torqued me off. I'll deal with them, since I don't have much choice, but someone needs to address this issue.

Arsenal1916, we certainly can imagine how annoying this may be. By chance, have Smart Family set up on your device?
