    I'm on VZ and I use Textra for texting. I recently got to Taiwan and tried to send a txt, but get a "Something went wrong with sending. Please try again." message. The other 2 stock text apps won't send out texts either. Last year I had an old flip phone and it let me send txt's just fine.

    Do I need to add a "+1" prefix to my phone numbers for this to work?

    Hello and welcome to Android Central rightnitro!

    The Verizon model of Galaxy S5, G900V, unlike the Global S5 models, is modified specifically for the Verizon network.

    These threads explain more...

    Using VZW S5 with Three sim card (uk), why am I having problems receiving text messages?

    SMS won't send

    EDIT: Try, this suggestion, on another forum..

    "It is simple, go to phone dialer > Settings > Call > Assisted dialing
    Inside assisted dialing where it say Reference country select your country.
    than edit Country code by adding a + in front of the number there.

    You are done just don't forget to turn Assisted dialing On.

    Thanks.

    I restarted the phone, and the stock Samsung app was working without phone number modification. Textra still doesn't work but after some looking around this is a known issue with them.
