Hello BrookAshleyy,

Text messaging is an easy way to keep in touch and I want to make sure your messages are working properly. Is your software currently up to date? Please try turning off iMessage by going to Settings > Messages. After turning iMessage off, please power your phone off and on then try sending a regular text message. Keep us posted with any results!
