iPhone 5s Messaging Help

Have iPhone 5s. In messaging, I can't type in the "send" box because there is a stopwatch overlay in the box.

Let's get these messages flowing out like they should be marrae. I personally prefer to use text messages to communicate so I know how important this is. When did you notice this on your phone? Any recent changes? Is this will all contact or just a specific number? Please advised if you are using the native text application or a 3rd party app to text so we may further assist.

marrae I noticed this on iOS 9.0 myself. Did you update to iOS 9.0.2 yet? If not, please do that first. Also, if you have do the following. Backup the device via iTunes or iCloud, wipe the device to factory and then try texting before you restore from backup. This is what Apple always requires to weed out any issues like this. Let us know if this helps.
