    I don't text much, but just gave it a try and no problem sending or receiving via Hangouts.
    Check your settings.
    Here is my reply to an earlier thread regarding APN settings for CC.

    Check your APN settings as suggested by camanokid. That should fix the issue.

    I revised my post to add red color text for my changes.
    Check them closely.
    Be care NOT to put a space between NAME: ConsumerCellular
    Also I noticed the parm for MMS Port: 80 was missing from the parm list.

    I had some problems getting both data and text with Consumer Cellular. Here's the Access Point Name (APN) settings that worked for me.
