So, same carrier and wi-fi network but one won't send SMS messages? Does it send iMessages?

You are correct same carrier and wi-fi. The phone does send texts (imessages) to iphones. the settings in the message section are identical on working and failing phone and send sms is on.

Have you tried resetting your network settings? (Settings>General>Reset>Reset NETWORK Settings?) or resetting the phone altogether? (Hold down home button and power button at the same time for about 15-20 seconds until the Apple logo appears on the screen, then release, boot back up, and try to send?)

I have reset the network settings and reset the entire phone - neither resolved the issue

Have you contacted your carrier? Perhaps one of the accounts was not set up correctly by your carrier when the 4S was added.

Yes I have conacted my carrier - they are researching the issue. I merely thought someone may have had this problem before and knew what the resolution might be.

- See the iPhone Troubleshooting Assistant.
- Verify that every phone number in your contacts list includes an area code.
- When sending to existing contacts, ensure that your contacts include the full phone number, and not just the information needed to dial locally.
- If you have recently ported your number from another carrier, please contact your current carrier to verify that the porting process has completed successfully.

I have the same exact problem did you ever get it fixed? I can't text my son but my wife can... Same phone ...same day

After trying all the suggestions and the carrier trouble shooting etc. - the thing that finally resoved the our problem was deleting and re-entering the contact information (just for the one specific contact) on both phones.
