    Well I turned off iMessages then rebooted phone sent a text to the one number I was having problems with. It all went through so I switched iMessages back on and voila I can now send messages to the one offending number I couldn't before. Have no idea why this happened in the first place but thanks to the info I gleamed off here all is fixed.

    I have this issue and it deals with iMessage.  I think it has to do with both of us sharing the same Apple ID as the only issue I have is with my Wife.  Turning off iMessage and all is fine.

    Had trouble sending text messages from my Iphone 3gs so not troubled with any latest  IOS updates.


    Not sure why it started but found if I inserted the international code for the person I was calling it worked OK.


    ie: replace the 0 in a mobile number with 44 for UK


    Hope this helps someone.

    This sounds like the same problem that I just experienced.  It is known as a "translation problem". 


    One of the wireless carriers must submit a ticket to a national business who handles multi-carrier/inter-carrier cellular communication, basically an unbiased third party business that is government funded. Call your carrier's technical support department, and referance the phone number and carrier (if you know it).

    My partner and i had this same issue, we tried everything listed on this forum, anyway it turns out that the problem was not the iPhone it was my samsung galaxy. All of her messages were disappearing into my spam folder. Thought this might help someone as most people mention partners, aka the person most of us text the most.


    So anyway try checking the spam folder on the recipient phone. Worked for us

    Thanks.  I had the same problem texting my daughter.  tried step 1 and 2 and it worked.  That was extremely frustrating though because the phone shows the message has gone through,  I thought my daughter wasnt talking to me ;'(  but all is well ,  she still love her mum!

    my wife and my kids, and i are having this same issue.  we are all on the same network (AT&T) and all have Iphones. all are updated to the latests update (iOS 7.1.1).  we have been having this issue for about a month or so now. I have tried all of the above suggestions and nothing seems to work. my iMessage is stuck in the off possition and will not turn on. i cannot send an text to my wife now due to when selecting her name from the contacts and choosing her phone number it comes up as "no name" will not allow me to send (as in the "send" button is greyed out).


    have deleted my text messages from my history 2 times not to only have them come back after restarting my phone.


    this is getting really old.


    will an Apple rep please respond with an acurate fix?

    Are you tried a "Jul 14, 2013 9:02 AM" diagnosis ?

    What happening?

  • GabJam1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Hi, this worked for only 1 of the number in my contacts (my other phone) all teh other contacts that didnt work, still dont work. Tried everything.  Is there a simple way out, happy to delete/reset phone or change phone numbers, anything but goingthrough each contact adn finding teh correct solution for each contact.  Apple you are a disaster for this. Sort it out.


    Wil getting a new sim and tel number, but keeping all contacts relove this. OR will i have to start all new contacts and type them in all over again one by one.?

    someone shoudl be fired for this incompetence. Its 2015 adn the thread on thi sall over the internet dont really say theres anything easy to solve this.  Happy new year apple, youve given me the first headache of eth year.


    BTW with my problem, my network provide says the text are sent (they just dont land) so they have been BILLING ME.!! as it leaves the network, GETS LOST IN APPLE somewhere and NEVER turns up. Apple you owe me money.

    Brilliant, I have tried everything and this worked.  This is such an EASY fix as well.  Thank you.
