Hello Kolbro
I never like to hear our customers are having difficulties. Let's look into this! Are you able to make a call? Dial #832 to check. What zip code are you in?

Hello kolbro!

Let's look into this, I want you to be able to use messaging! You have an iPhone now, correct? When did you get this device and what was the previous device? Have you ever been able to send SMS?

Yes i have an Iphone 4s. I got this device 1 and a half year ago and about

to upgrade soon. My previous device was from Verizon too. It wasn't an

android or a smartphone. I dont think i was ever able to send sms. Im not

really sure because most of my friends have iphones so i use imessage. I

can't text my non iphone friends.

Thank you for taking the time to troubleshoot with us here. I would suggest checking your account features for a Text Message Block through http://www.vzw.com/myverizon, login then click Add/Remove Features on left side. I am eager to get to the bottom of this!


Thank you,

kolbro,

Good to go. Were you able to remove that feature on the website? Are the text messages working now?

I'm not sure how to get to the page. I'm only an account member.

Hi i just checked and it says This mobile number does not have permission

to send messages and cannot sign up for this service. Please contact the

account owner for this mobile number to change permissions. What do i do?
