Text Messaging

My iPhone4s will only deliver text messages when also connected to wifi. When out of wifi range or not connected all my text messages are returned as undelivered. I can receive text messages from other smart phones. The settings for messages seem to be correct and all in the On position. Thank you

Re: Text Messaging

Sounds like the phones settings is using imessage instead of standard sms, if you have NO mobile data switched on and you are not connected to WiFi - this would cause them too fail.
