Reset your network settings


If toggling Airplane mode on and off didn't work, you can try resetting your network settings. Go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. This will reset your Wi-Fi networks and passwords, cellular settings, and VPN and APN settings.

Press and hold the side button until the power off slider appears. Drag the slider to the right to turn off your iPhone. Wait a few seconds, and then press and hold the side button again until the Apple logo appears.

3. Update Your iPhone Software


If restarting your iPhone didn't work, the next step is to check for software updates. Here's what you need to do:

Check for iOS update


Go to Settings > General > Software Update and check if there's an iOS update available. If there is, download and install it.

Update carrier settings


Your carrier may have released an update that can fix your text message problem. Go to Settings > General > About to check if there's a carrier settings update available. If there is, install it.

4. Check Your Message Settings


If updating your iPhone software didn't work, the issue might be with your message settings. Here are a few things to check:

Check message forwarding settings


If you're using the Message Forwarding feature, make sure it's set up correctly. Go to Settings > Messages > Text Message Forwarding and make sure the correct devices are selected.

Verify blocked contacts list


Make sure you haven't accidentally blocked the person you're trying to send a message to. Go to Settings > Messages > Blocked Contacts to check.

Reset iMessage settings


If you're having trouble sending iMessages, you can try resetting your iMessage settings. Go to Settings > Messages > Send & Receive and tap on your Apple ID. Then, tap Sign Out. Wait a few seconds, and then sign back in with your Apple ID.

We hope these 12 solutions have helped you fix your iPhone text message problem. If none of the above worked, it may be time to contact Apple Support for further assistance. Happy texting!
