My iPhone is suddenly sending text messages to the landlines

I haven't changed a thing and my iPhone today is sending text messages to the landlines for my contacts.

Re: My iPhone is suddenly sending text messages to the landlines
Customer Support

We are sorry to hear that your phone is sending text to landlines, DKZThomas. We are here to help. 


Have you made sure that your contacts the text are being sent to do not have the landline number listed first before the mobile number? 


Also, please follow this suggestion from Apple; If "Text Message Forwarding" under Settings > Messages is toggled on, take a moment to toggle it off, do you still receive or automatically send to landlines?
