Why can I receive text messages but not send?

Why can I receive text messages but not send. This has been happening for about 10 hours.

Thanks for the response. Must be smart phones. My daughter has a dumb phone and she can send out. I tried deleting my text messages on the Verizon website, but they won’t delete. It must be on their end. Chat line was busy forever, until they shut it down.

  • I am unable to send a text message.  I can send a imessage fine.  I am able to receive a text message but not send

    I have been unable to send a regular text message since the other day when I arrived in Houston and took my phone off airplane mode.  I have went thru the carrier and nothing we did solved the problem.  What are some options I could try.  I have no problems sending imessages as long as there is a data connection.

    Text messages are a carrier feature so if you are having problems sending them I would check with your carrier

  • Can receive Viber messages, but not send?

    Hi all,
    Last week my friend in the UK lost her phone, got a new one and re-installed Viber.
    Since then I can receive her Viber texts, but when I try to reply I get a pop-up saying that 'this contact no longer has Viber installed...'!  This obviously seems nonsensical. 
    She can also call me on Viber, and appears in my Viber contact list.  However if I attempt to send her a Viber message and get the pop-up above, her name suddenly disappears from the contact list!
    I have today updated my Viber to the latest version, in case my Viber was somehow out-of-date with hers, but the problem persists.
    Any thoughts?
    Thanks,

    I started having the same problem today. I have been using Viber for some time now without any problmem both on wifi and 3G and starting today I'm not able to use it. I have an iPhone 4s and have the latest version of Viber installed on it.
    The messages get stuck at "Sending" and after a while turns put to red color with an error "Not sent".
    I tried uninstalling and re-installing viber but of no use. After the re-install it is not syncing my contact list nor working. Could some one help?

  • I can send, but I can't receive texts messages from just one person

    I can send,  but I can't receive texts messages from just one person.....thanks

        Hello railenemarie16, let's solve this mystery together! Have you tried deleting your contact from her device and then re-adding? Also, have her send you a message manually instead of from the saved contact. Did you have an iPhone previously before the Note 3 and used iMessage? Keep us posted!

  • How can I receive text messages on my iPhone and iPad ?

    How can I receive text messages on my iPhone and iPad?

    If you are using the iMessage app on your iPad, you need to use the same email address you use on your iPhone.  But, be advised, that when people email your cell number on your iPhone, you will not get the message on your iPad.  iPad is not a cell phone.  And also know that iMessage on iPad is intended to only let you text with other iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) devices. 
    If you want to be able to text to anyone from your contacts list (those for example who do not own an iOS device), there are free apps in the App Store, such as TextFree, which you can download.  But, TextFree will assign you a number (I know kind of odd since iPad is not a cell phone), which you can then text anyone you want.  You'll just need to let your friends know the texts are coming from you.

  • I can't receive text messages from a specific person

    So my aunt has verizon. She has an iPhone. And I have the note 3.  Every time she texts me it says not delivered and I can't receive text messages from her. I don't have her blocked and this only happens between me and her. I can text all other contacts just fine. Please help.

  • I can't receive text messages (sms) when imessage is turned on

    I can't receive text messages (sms) when imessage is turned on.
    i only receive sms when i turn imessage off, this just started yesterday after i switched from my 5s to the iphone 6.
    this is very frustrating

    Hi shineshinebobo,
    Thanks for the question. Based on what you stated, it seems like you are not receiving sms messages. I would recommend that you read this article, it may be able to help you isolate or resolve the issue.
    iOS: Troubleshooting Messages - Apple Support
    If you can't send and receive SMS
    You will need these to send and receive SMS:
    An iPhone
    A strong cellular network connection through a cellular network provider
    A domestic SMS plan from your cellular provider (You might need an international messaging plan to send SMS to an international contact. Contact your carrier for more information)
    A roaming SMS plan when you use a cellular provider's network that is different from your billing cellular provider's network (Learn more about roaming and contact your carrier for more information.)
    To resolve issues sending and receiving SMS, follow these steps
    Go to Settings and turn airplane mode off.
    Make sure that you have a cellular network signal in the status bar of your iPhone. If there's no signal, learn more about troubleshooting no service.
    Restart your iPhone.
    Tap Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings on your iPhone.
    Remove your SIM card and insert it again.
    If you still can't send or receive SMS, follow these steps
    Make sure that the contact who's trying to message you isn't blocked in Settings > Messages > Blocked.
    Make sure that you're using the area code with the contact's phone number. When sending messages internationally, you also need to use the contact's international code.
    If you're using a "Pay as you go" SMS plan, make sure it has enough available balance. Contact your carrier if you're unsure of your SMS plan or the available balance.
    If the issue occurs with a specific contact or contacts, back up or forward important messages and delete your current messaging threads with the contact. Create a new message to the contact and try again.
    If the issue occurs with a specific contact or contacts, delete and recreate the contact from the Contacts app. Send a new message to the contact.
    Back up and restore your iPhone as new.
    If your carrier has recently ported your phone number, the porting process might not be complete. Contact your carrier to confirm that the porting process is complete.
    Contact your carrier to confirm that you're provisioned for sending SMS and are in an area with cellular coverage.
    Contact your carrier to verify there are no blocks or filters placed on your wireless account preventing you from sending SMS.
    Thanks for using Apple Support Communities.
    Cheers,
    Mario

  • Why can I sync a movie but not TV shows on my nano (7th gen)?

    I am using iTunes 11.0 and can sync a movie (Miracle on 34th Street) to my new ipod nano 7th gen but when I try a TV Show (a Planet Earth HD episode) or even a brief video clip taken with my camara I am told that such an action is not permitted on this ipod.  So why can I sync a movie but not TV shows on my nano (7th gen)?  Thank you.

    Before you can sync video files, it must be converted into a format compatible with ipod.  If you can’t sync a video convert it by doing the following:
    In iTunes, select the video you want to convert. Do one of the following then sync again after:
    1) Choose File > Create New Version > Create iPod or iPhone Version.
    2) Choose File > Create New Version > Create iPad or Apple TV Version.
    I hope this works.
