Text Message not sent.....Help

Pleasse help..I'm having trouble text messaging to 1 of my contacts.  Anytime I try to send a text to this contact, it takes awhile (shows the green arrow) but then a red X shows 'Msg not sent' 

The thing is I've been texting this contact for over a year and now suddenly it doesn't work??? 

It seems since I can send messages to other contacts, it wouldn't be my issue, but this contact isn't having any other problems getting messages from their contacts.

Any ideas?

We want those messages to go through blueeyes70! What make and model device are you using? What messaging app? Can you make calls to this contact? Is this contact with another carrier?

I am here to further assist you Jules1959. I rely on my text messages for everything! Do you have a lot of threads in your text message application? If you have a lot of messages built up in the app, I would suggest deleting some of the messages.  Are you having any issues with phone calls or with your data? Another thing that I would recommend is to pull the sim card from the device. Follow this link and it will give you the steps on how to complete: http://vz.to/19yE5pf Keep us posted if this works or not. I want to get to the bottom of this ASAP.

I am having a similar issue, it is not showing ANY of the texts prior to my signing up for the app. I am not certain if that's because it's just how it works. Or perhaps because I generally use the full text function and don't send SMS.

Hi Areyis - Let's make sure your applications are working as they should! What is the name of the application you are using? Are text showing in the native Messaging application? I am eager to get to the bottom of this!

Thank you ,

Same here.  Started about a week and a half ago 85% of my texts are undeliverable.  Getting super frustrating.  It has to be a service issue, not device.
