I will share with you several troubleshooting steps in fixing the SMS fails to send in Android which the Smart Communications tech support shared with me when I called them yesterday to help me fix the problem.

I was experiencing SMS fails to send in Android for 3 days even though I have enough regular load. I have no problem with incoming messages, incoming calls, and outgoing calls just specifically outgoing messages. There was even no maintenance happening in our area when the problem occurred. I am using Huawei Nova 2i and the steps below might differ from yours.

  1. Open the Messaging App.
  2. Tap on the Ellipsis (the 3 vertical dots with a word more under it).
  3. Select Settings.
