Text messages not received

I have been having TERRIBLE problems with text messages lately. I sent a dozen texts over the last 3 or 4 days to my girlfriend, NONE got through. Her texts back to me didn't get through. We have both been able to text other people. This is getting very annoying. Any thoughts? I use a smartphone, she doesn't, but we have been keeping in touch via text for the last couple of years.

If using an iPhone and if sending to a non-iMessage capable recipient, the message app will send as sms regardless of whether "send as SMS" is turned on or off. That setting only affects iMessages.

I have an iPhone5 and when try to text two friends with droid OS on Verizon, neither receive my texts nor do I receive theirs.

Re: Text messages not received

You should visit a corporate store and have a representative check it out. If your settings are correct, it could be something like a bad SIM card or inaccurate account settings.
