    I attempted to send a text to somebody two times and neither time did it go through. A few minutes later I see an icon of an exclamation mark at the top of the screen. When I swipe down it says that 2 messages couldn't be sent. I deleted the message thread it was referring to and can't get rid of the stupid icon. I even rebooted the the phone to no avail. It's driving me crazy.

    Hmm, this is odd. Is this stock SMS, or a texting app like Textra? See if the messaging app in question needs to be updated - just a guess. But if rebooting your device doesn't fix it, maybe try turning your network connections off and then on again. And texting other contacts works fine?

    Yep, stock SMS. Turning wifi off and on didn't help and I just sent another text to another recipient and it worked fine.

    Icon was gone when I turned the phone on this morning but as soon as I got a text, the stupid thing reappeared. GRRRR!

    This is very strange. What kind of phone do you have? I would suggest maybe downloading another texting app and see if you run into the same issue - just as a test.

    I would try Textra - it is an all-around good texting app. Let us know what happens!

    I installed Google Messenger and it works very much like what I was using. I just switched back to the default text app and I'll see if the icon comes back again after my first incoming text.

    I'm using a Moto X Pure, I may be misunderstanding the question, but can't you just pull down the notifications and hold and swipe the text notification to the right? My notifications for some things stay too until I remove them like I described, they never come back

    Never heard of that method. If it comes back, I'll give it a shot.

    It didn't come back but at least if it does, I have something to try to get rid of it and if that fails, I have another texting app to use. Thanks everyone for your assistance.
