"FAILED TO SEND" Msg On Both Devices

We have a Samsung 8 Note & a Samsung 8+. Yesterday, both started having issues sending & receiving texts, with the 8 Note starting 1st.

We've been through the Troubleshooting, to no avail. Some texts go through & some simply don't. It doesn't seem to matter if they are SMS or MMS, the result is the same.

Greetings @lamme,


We understand you're having issues with sending and receiving texts on both devices. We'd like to try to assist you with this inquiry.

  • How long did it take you to receive a text from someone? 
  • Did you receive any error message when trying to send? 
  • How many bars are being displayed on your phone?
