Cannot send text messages to a specific contact

I have an issue with sending text meesages to a specific contact.  Sending texts works to all other contacts.

 

Have tried sending to the specific phone number (and not the contact) and it does not work.

 

I am baffled ... any ideas?

 

Thanks

Again, only one specific recipient.

 

 


Any chance that person blocked you? Are they on AT&T or another carrier?

What "doesn't work" - does it look like it sends but the other person never receives it, or do you get an error message (if so, what?) when you try to send it.

Thanks johninsj!

 

That was it.  We all have avast on our phones and I was checking the avast block list and the number was not there.

 

But the person with the other phone had accidentally selected the "Register number as spam" option when trying to delete a message thread.

If you are not blocked, it could be your phone.  Go into the contact and put the cursor between the #1 and the first digit of area code and type a dash (-) and save it.  It worked for me.
