Wow! Thanks for doing all that you have done thus far.  We can solve the mystery at hand. Is this problem still happening? Can you send to other contacts?

Thanks for the details Rick_Okla. Do the people you're having problems with have iPhones as well? Please try again deleting one of the contacts and also the previous message thread. Are you able to call them?

I deleted the contact from my phone, waited an hours and tried to send to the phone number, which is not an Iphone, same issue. I can call him with no problem.

I'm sorry you're still having issues with these particular contacts Rick_Okla. I know its frustrating when trying to stay in contact with someone. Does your phone have the latest software update?

This has happened to me before when messaging people on other carriers. The issue, for me anyway, was that I did not have the area code saved in the contact. Hope you get it resolved.

I appreciate you taking the time to follow up with us. Do you have another iOS device such as an iPad? How long have you had the iPhone? Do you know if the other devices recently moved from an iOS to Android? I want to ensure that the messages aren't being hung up on an Apple Servers.
