On my S21 (unlocked, Verizon, fully updated) I can send a long text to another S21 but it never delivers. If I send same long message to an LG or iPhone the message is delivered. I can send messages under 160 characters no problem. Any ideas?

Can that other s21 get phone calls from you? Just want to make sure you are not blocked on their end

Phone calls work.
If i send an sms under 160 characters it's fine. The longer ones always fail.

@nthnu So this is one specific S21? It probably points to that device using the wrong APN or an SMS APN configuration issue at the carrier.

I'm using the stock Messages app and came across a tip.

Text messages over 160 characters still don't send. It's very inconvenient, but if I add a subject to the text message, it converts it to MMS and it sends.

I also have a ticket in with Verizon.
