Changes to text messaging

With the latest update to my Samsung Galaxy phone,  I can now only send a text message if I'm connected to wifi or on data. However, I can receive text messages without wifi or data. It wasn't this way before the update. How do i change it back to the way it was?

Hi @swl1305,


Thank you for reaching out! We'd love to help. If you are unable to receive texts, please provide more information for us. Is this happening while you're on Wi-Fi as well? What troubleshooting options have you tried already?


Apart from this, give our Troubelshoot & Resolve tool a try. You need to select your device to begin. Afterwards, you can select Messaging beneath Service/network issues. Follow the steps on the page. Let us know if this helps!
