I am having a problem with only 1 contact with messaging. I have a Samsung Note 3 my contact has an Iphone 4s  with another carrier.  I receive the messages and I am able to send pictures but I am unable to send text messages, they come up failed message. A friend with a Samsung phone and Verizon sent a message no problem.  I have checked all my settings.... What do I need to do to be able to send sms not just mms?

I have received that FAILED message a few times with one party only and if I click on the failed message and resend (sometimes takes a few times) it will finally go through.. I sometimes have to double check to make sure I have full signal

Done that many times, I've even deleted the contact and then reentered it in.

are you able to send sms with all other contacts you have? and have you asked the one with the !phone if they are able to receive sms messages? Since this is happening with only one party , I am beginning to think it might be on their end. especially if you are able to send and receive both sms and mms with others. Can you check with them and than advise? I will continue to try and research further in the mean time
