Question: People are not receiving entire messages.

When I send someone a longer text message they only receive a part of it. For example if i send a 3 sentence long text to someone they only receive the first sentence. Please help me. I get no notification of it not sending or anything I only found out about it cause my friend told me. My send as SMS is on. MMS is on. Everything that normally causes text messaging problems is where it should be.

Hello GrimAnnoyance,

Thank you for using Apple Support Communities. It's my understanding that only part of your sent text messages are being received. I can surely see how this could be concerning. I'm happy to help.

First, force the Messages app to close and test the issue again.

If the issue also occurs while sending iMessages, please:
  1. Turn iMessage off
  2. Restart iPhone
  3. Turn iMessage back on
  4. Test
Have a great day!
