Why Can't I Send a Text Message To Certain Phone Numbers?

What to do if you text messages are not being delivered to your contact.

Text messages normally require a 10 digit cell number to send:

You need to ensure the 10 digit cell number includes an area code to send properly - even if the number is a local number. (i.e. 8076262355)

You may also need to update saved contacts in your phone to include an area code.
