    Cannot send text messages

    Just started tonight..Recently..I am unable to send a text message at all. Have plenty of available texts messages (airtime) to send so that is not the problem. Can make calls just not send any text messages. Is anyone else experiencing this too? Something is up..

    What's the make/model of the phone? Does it use the single-bucket or three-bucket (talk/text/data) system?

    It's the one that is in my profile- LGV20 and it is on the smartphone plan with the 3 bucket system. Have plenty of available airtime in all three buckets. My husband just tried to send a text message with his phone and was unable to do so as well and he is on H2O wireless which is on AT&T servers.

    If your phone uses AT&T (through Tracfone) also, then maybe AT&T is having a problem (affecting text messages only) in your area.

    Thanks @hpham, yes they both use AT&T servers. Text messages that I tried to send earlier at 8pm CST finally went through around 9:40pm CST so there must have been an outage on the server side. Coincidentally the test messages that my hubby tried to send me finally came through as well about the same time. Still very strange and I am pretty sure that we weren't the only ones that were affected..

    It's too early to blame outages on the hurricane yet.

    Oh yeah, I agree but something was definitely up that was not the norm..Maybe someone else will chime in that had the same issue. I am located in the Southeast so don't know if that had anything to do with it or not..Just glad that everything is back to normal for now. Just don't have any answers as to what happened. It was definitely weird and glad that it didn't last too long!
