i try to pair with my sons iPhone 6 by sending an instruction text from Smart Family app, but when i receive a text it says: "You were unable to receive a text due to a device restriction or insufficient funds."

i tried deleting app and reinstalling with no luck.

theres no restrictions on any phones

 

this is annoying

I just figured it out myself, after ALL of that!!! Went in my Verizon App, has to go into daughters account to adding blocked contacts and switch off ‘block restricted, unavailable and private numbers’.  Then I tried to send it to her again and it went through!!!

Go to Smart Family app. Click on YOUR account at top of page.  Click on Contacts and then blocked contacts.  Will see ‘block private and restricted’
