Hello. Brand new FP customer here. Just received my phone this week. Got my number set-up and am able to make and receive calls plus use my data plan. I can also receive texts but I'm not able to send a text. I receive an error icon every time. Any ideas? Thank you in advance.

    @wclancy Please go to Settings -> Apps -> [scroll to the right to Downloaded/On this phone] Messaging -> Force Stop and clear data. Then just reopen it and let it load and it should work.

    Be advised you will lose your SMS history.

    @Ali - appreciate the reply and guidance but no dice. Followed your instructions to a T and it's the same error showing. Any other ideas?

    This service or these phones are crap. All calls and texts are intermittent. If I restart my phone every hour or so, it seems to work somewhat more often than just leaving it on like properly functioning phones.
