SMS Not Delivered (iPhone6)
WOESEO90

Hello,


I have an iPhone6 (Version 10.3.2 (14F89)) updated to iOS 10.3.2

I recently removed myself from a family plan and went to an individual plan. Ever since, I have not been able to send/receive SMS/MMS. When I try to send I keep getting the "Not Delivered" red text with the red exclamation mark.

Steps I have tried:

1. Reset the phone

2. Reset the network

3. iMessage on/off

4. Data LTE on/off

I have verified that my number is selected for SMS and SMS is turned on.

I would not like to restore my iPhone for such an issue and was wondering if there was another way around this.

Thanks,

Need_Help!

Hello Verizon CS,

Steps I have taken.

1. Remove SIM

2. Turn off phone

3. Restart phone

4. Turn off phone

5. Re-insert SIM

6. Turn on phone

I still cannot send/receive SMS.

All other call features are working as intended and no physical or water damage has been made.

Thanks,
Wes

Those are great steps to begin with. Let's get your messages working properly. What messaging application are you using? Verizon Messages app? Does this also happen with iMessage?

Hello Team,

Have the same issue. "Message Send Failure" when sending SMS on iPhone 6s. Tried all troubleshooting steps mentioned above. Updated to IOS 10.3.3, still having the same issue. Help.

Hey Colby,

When you log in, hover over My Plans and Services and click Blocks. When you click on Block Services, here, you can turn ON and OFF different blocks on the account.

For some reason when I activated my account texts were turned off.

Thanks,

Wes
