I do not seem to be able to send sms mesaages to contacts.
What is wrong?
Have you turned on Settings > Messages > Send as SMS?
yes, tried that and still wont work. iMessage is on as well as send read receipts and MMS messaing and show subject field
just worked out I did not have anything in the subject line; so it would not send.
How then do I turn off the subject line???
Settings>Messages>Show Subject Field>Off
