My android Samsung galaxy A53 is not sending texts to iPhone users. I can receive their texts and calls. Ican also make calls to them and they go through. It's only outgoing texts that are not working. I've tried chat features and endless troubleshooting. I even have another android device the OnePlus Nord and it's able to send texts to those exact same iPhone users using the exact same messaging app and settings. I'm stumped. Please help

Are those iPhone users able to receive MMS messages?

Yes. I even have a separate device with a different number that's also an Android and they can receive the messages from that line.

It's probably because they can't receive messages

I have a separate phone with a different number that's also an Android and they can receive the messages from that line. This issue seems to be related with only this Samsung Android.

Does the permissions for your messages app on the Samsung allow SMS?

Just checked and yes, it has the permission for SMS. By the way I'm using the default Google Messages app. I've tried turning chat features on/off as that's solved an issue before, but it didn't help this time.

Have you tried uninstalling/reinstalling Google Messages? Did you try Samsung Messages for kicks?

Yes I've tried reinstalling and even using a previous version. I've also tried Samsung Messages and it's the same issue. I can't understand why it would work on my OnePlus Nord G20 but not the Samsung Galaxy A53
