One common issue that our readers are facing with their Android device is its inability to send a text message. In this latest installment of our troubleshooting series we will tackle the Galaxy S4 can’t send text messages issue and other related problems. If you own a Samsung Galaxy S4  or any other Android device for that matter then feel free to contact us using this form. Solution: It appears that your phone may have some form of corrupt data in it that is causing this problem. Problem: I switched from Verizon to T-Mobile and now use my unlocked Verizon Samsung S4 with a T-Mobile SIM card. Solution: Have you tried checking the message center number setting that your phone is using? There are however instances when you will not be able to access the message center number especially on a Verizon phone as it appears this setting has been locked by the Verizon S4 software itself. Problem: Any time I receive a picture text on my wifi setting it will not download but if I use Verizon data it will immediately download. Solution: The sending and receiving of a picture message or MMS requires a mobile data connection. Problem: Using Samsung texting app that is the default for this phone, every once and awhile the lower half of the texting screen (with the Speak radio button) freezes on the phone so that any screen is covered by that lower half of the texting screen. Feel free to send us your questions, suggestions and problems you’ve encountered while using your Android phone.
If you have related issues with your phone, read on to know more of these problems and how to tackle them. But in case you are trying to find a solution for a different problem, let me direct you to our Galaxy Note 5 troubleshooting page where we list down every problem we address every week. As you said, the phone is originally a Verizon variant but you got it unlocked to work with T-Mo’s network. Call T-Mo’s hotline and ask for the correct APN for Android and then have the rep walk you through setting it up on your phone. Troubleshooting: Didn’t it cross your mind that maybe the problem is with the receiving end? Press and hold the Volume Up and the Home buttons first, and then press and hold the Power key.


The reboot may take a little longer to complete but don’t worry and wait for the device to become active.
We are always open to your problems, questions and suggestions, so feel free to contact us by filling up this form. We will be more than happy to assist you with any concern that you may have with your device. I suggest you wipe the cache partition of your phone first then check if the issue gets resolved. If you are not able to access this setting then try deactivating the LTE signal of your phone and instead switch to 3G only or GSM then try to send a message. This is the reason why you can send and receive a picture message when you use your Verizon data but can’t using a Wi-Fi connection. These issues include sending and receiving of SMS and MMS, syncing texts with email accounts, settings schedules for messages to be sent and attaching pictures to normal messages. Tried the instructions to remove that were listed on your site, but I think they are for Note 4.
As you said, there are only four options under Settings so what you were looking for is probably under those categories. You may test it by sending a text message to your number and see if you can receive an email containing your message.
I mean, you can check if all those messages were successfully sent and if they did, then that’s the end of it.
If I try to attach a picture it will say send and  when I select the picture it automatically sends the picture instead of letting me attach it to  the text message.
It might be just a bug that Samsung needs to address yet the company hasn’t acknowledged it yet.
The #Samsung Galaxy #S4 for example is not immune to this type of problem as owners of this device can experience difficulty in sending or receiving a text message. If the problem still occurs then I suggest you backup your phone data then do a factory reset. The reason why the signal increases when a call comes in is that your phone uses more battery power to boost the signal to make the call as clear as possible.
If the issue still occurs despite a full signal then I suggest you restart your phone to reset your connection to the network.


I can receive texts, I can access internet with or without wi-fi turned on, and I can make and receive phone calls. If there are no new updates especially for the Google App app then go to the phone Application Manager then click on the All tab.
When I go to my Settings I only have 4 options; Sync calendar, Sync contacts, Sync email and Sync tasks.
We however ask that when you do contact us try to be as detailed as possible so that an accurate assessment can be made and the correct solution can be given.
When the call ends the power to you phone’s antenna is then reduced to conserve battery life. As far as I can tell, the only thing that doesn’t work any more is outgoing text using stock messaging app.
Change your phone message center number to +12063130004 which is the correct setting for T-Mobile.
Sometimes I can restart the phone and it will  say select to attach a picture and it will  attach to the text message . But please note that we receive hundreds of emails every day and it’s impossible for us to respond to every single one of them.
When you click on more at the top, all you get is sync now, which just syncs everything or remove account. Besides, if it were just an app problem, reinstalling it would have fixed the problem, but it didn’t, right? If we were able to help you, please help us spread the word by sharing our posts with your friends. But after a lot of trouble shooting it just seems  to be random when it works but for the majority of time it doesn’t consistently allow me to select a picture and attach to a text message before sending .
