A not so common yet annoying problem for the iPhone users is the “Can’t send text messages” error which becomes a headache when it hits you in the wrong time. Though the problem is very disturbing, the solutions are fairly simple. Check out for the following things that are probably causing the problem and fix them.
Check The Internet Connection (If you don’t have a cellular connection)
If you don’t have a cellular network in the first place, your text messages are sent as an iMessage for which, internet connection is necessary. So, check out for the Internet connection and for that, look in the top left corner of your iPhone’s screen. Here, look for the signal strength of your carrier provider or the WiFi connection if you don’t have a SIM.
If there’s a problem, reset it by going into and then out of Airplane Mode from the Navigation Menu which is accessible by dragging down the home screen.
Restart Your Phone
The evergreen method of restarting your phone always works. Just hit the restart button and try sending the messages again. Your messages will most likely start working now. It’s not necessarily the only option to be tried but at least, you should give it a chance before going deep into other solutions. Close all the programs properly and restart the phone to check if you are back on track or not.
Check The Phone Number
Last but not the least, check the recipient’s phone number that you added to the sender’s list. This may sound very basic but sometimes while sending a message in hurry, we often put the digits wrong and even in some cases, people put special characters instead of numbers which cause the problem while sending. Having a good look at the number you added or checking it by going in thew contact list is worth giving a chance as this little problem may be causing you a headache out of nothing!
