When I try to send a text, I get, "free msg-unable to send message-message blocking is active"

Got an Motorola G7 and was just trying to send a text, the first one from the new phone when I got this message

Open the messaging app, tap the three-dot menu top right, and look at your settings. Tell us if no go.

Is this a new phone on an existing line or a new phone on a new line? Is it possible the account holder/manager has enabled text blocking? That message appears to be coming from the carrier, telling you the text blocking feature is turned on for the account.

If you need additional help or have more questions or details to share, please join the site so you can reply in this thread. See this link for instructions on how to join Android Central.

Welcome to Android Central! I agree with hallux -- contact your carrier and ask if anything needs to be activated on their end.
