    Can you make phone calls? 4G/Wifi shouldn't impact messaging unless they're MMS messages. You do have a valid SIM because 4G is working, which means we're likely looking for something in settings. Regular text messages (SMS) are sent via the cellular network, ie. the CDMA connection that phone calls travel on. Is it possible this is because of a low signal area or is this happening everywhere?

    I got it figured out, at some point with my RAZR MAXX I had put a *67 in front of this number. The RAZR would still text it though, once I removed the *67 it worked fine.
