          Are you getting errors with the ones that won't go through?


          Have you verified that you are sending the messages using the full ten digit phone number? Not the seven digit or have a 1 in front of the number.

            Good morning benjamineichenblatt,


            Congratulations on purchasing the iPhone 4! It is one of the most popular smartphones on the market! As Ann154 stated are you getting an error message when you try to text certain people? Also, do you know the name of the provider of the numbers that you are unable to text? Below, I have posted some troubleshooting steps that I would like for you to try on your device. They are as follows:


            • Verify bars of signal on the device.
            • Ensure that the 10-digit mobile number is what is being entered in the To Field.
            • Turn off bluetooth and wifi in the Settings Menu.
            • Turn on Send As SMS in the Settings Menu. (Settings > Messages > Send As SMS > On)
            • Erase all long threaded messages from the text message inbox.
            • Power cycle device.
