Yikes! I know the importance of making sure your text messages are received by your family and friends! I definitely want to help! Let's try a few things to see whats causing this issue.
*Are you using the native text application on your iPhone 5?
*Are you sending the text using the iMessage feature?
* Do you notice any simularityes in the messages that are not sending?
Also, here are a few helpful tips:
• Verify that every phone number in your contacts list includes an area code.
• When sending to existing contacts, ensure that your contacts include the full phone number, and not just the information needed to dial locally.
• If you are trying to send a message to multiple recipients and you type in each contact manually instead of using the contact list, make sure you tap return instead of space to separate each one.
