Thanks for posting. Sorry to hear you're having issues sending SMS. Is this to every number?

Yes to all numbers but can receive them
Thanks for coming back to us @Jonfoster, are you able to call and use mobile data or are you having issues with those activities also?
Yes can phone, use data, and picture message just not text messages
Thanks for the update @Jonfoster.
I can take a further look into this for you but would need to take some details via a private message, so that we can get passed account security and get the issues looked into further.
Please look out for my message and we can get started.
Thanks for confirming your details @Jonfoster.
I have located the issue, your text messaging service was set to read only, I have changed the setting back to send and receive and cannot find a reason why this had been done on your account.
Please can you reboot your handset and let me know if this is now working and allows you to send and receive messages.
All working now. Thanks for your help 😃
