I'm at my wits end! S10 Lite stopped texting 3 months ago. I can receive, but not send. I have (literally) tried everything - every type of reboot, reconnecting to towers, power off/power on, verified APN (or whatever it's called), factory reset several times. I've tried various texting apps, but that does not solve the problem. I've deleted almost all of my texts, but that did not solve the problem. I've uninstalled most of my apps, but that do not solve the problem. Each thing I've tried I may be able to send one or possibly 2 texts after it, but after that it stops working and all texts fail. I've spent more hours than I can count chatting with carrier and Samsung. I've sent the phone in twice to Samsung. 2nd time they sent me a new phone. Same issue - still does not text. The SIM card worked perfectly fine in an old S8 it while my S10 Lite was sent in for repairs, so it can't be the sim card. Carrier blames Samsung. Samsung blames carrier. I'm caught in the middle with a phone that does not text. 😡😡😡
The carrier says everything is fine - strong signal, good connection, account paid up, etc. Carrier blames Samsung; Samsung blames carrier; I have a phone that does not text. I've restarted countless times. Powered off and on. Erased and reloaded settings. Everything. I think I'm using Google's messaging app. But, in any case, I've lost track of all the messaging apps I've tried. I think it's around 10 apps or so. None have worked.
The carrier blames Samsung. Samsung blames the carrier. Meanwhile, I wake up every day reliving the same nightmare of not being able to text (like the movie Groundhog Day)!
Thank you for reaching out. I can certainly understand how frustrating with can and be and I would recommend trying to change your SIM card as that's something you haven't tried. Please keep me posted if you are still experiencing these symptoms.
