I bought two iPhone 4S about a month ago.....on my phone I can only send and receive text messages from other iPhone users...on my wife's phone text messages work with other phone types...I get the "red !" and try again prompt but texts won't send on my phone...is something set up wrong or might I have a defective phone?
Not everyone has an iPhone so it's really important to have your regular text messaging function working. I will be more than happy to provide some suggestions to get you up an running.

Can I send texts with wifi and cell data both off? I have an iPhone with 4S and my plan is UNLT Calls and Texts with 2 GB Data. Do I use iMessage for ALL of my texts? Do those messages count as data usage?
Using imessage will go against your data plan allowance.
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
