We definitely want you winning those radio contests! May I ask what is occurring when you try to respond? Are you getting any error messages? Are you able to receive them okay?

jackiek330 - Having the ability to reply to short code text messages is a must. What happens when you send the reply? Do you know if you have a premium message block? Chck out this helpful link to lock/unblock services vz.to/1MEYquX

No worries, jackiek330. We'll make sure you are able to get your messages sent. What messaging app are you using? Have you checked your message permissions to allow Premium Messages?

Thanks for double checking that, jackiek330. Were you able to reply to those same numbers on your previous phone without errors? In the Messages application, please go into MORE > Settings and make sure that Signature & Callback number are both turned off and try the messages again.

Yes I was. I double checked and both are off. I was replying to my

doctor appointment and there might have been a screen or prompt that

came up as the first time I replied to a 5 digit sms short code asking

me something, but I'm not sure what is was or where is went? I may have

accidentally hit it?
