Sending a message to a non-Apple device involves using your cellular carrier's SMS text messaging capability. (Presumably you are only sending text messages, and not photos or other types of attachments - otherwise, this is a whole different issue.)


Contact your cellular carrier and explain you are having issues sending SMS text messages. (And, of course, a "non-Apple device" must be a cellular telephone.)
