Galaxy S20 FE 5G on Metro/T-Mobile/Sprint

I'm not sure whether I was on wifi, 4G, or 5G at the time, but I'm occasionally getting "Free Msg: Unable to send message - Message Blocking is active." responses to my outgoing texts starting Tuesday the 7th. However, my texts would still get Delivered and Read status updates eventually, and I could receive my friend's messages just fine. Restarting the phone solves the problem at least temporarily. Wat.

In neither case was the blocking actually real.

i think it might be a network issue. 

Who is your carrier? Have you spoken to your carrier yet?

You could also submit error report to Samsung Members after seeing the issue again. Be sure to attach these screenshots for reference.

Could you share the device's model number, software version and the messaging app's version?

Hay is for horses. Grass is much cheaper, so aren't you glad you're a mule?
