Text doesn't work properly

Text doesn't work properly

Postby Wayfinder » Thu Jul 05, 2018 9:29 am

When we purchase airtime with "minutes and text"... that text should come across standard phone lines.

Instead, for some reason TracFone text comes across DATA lines, and requires the purchase of an additional data card . It also requires the DATA function to be turned ON... which sucks down battery time unnecessarily.

Even when purchasing a data card and having that data amount show up on our account, it doesn't seem to show up on the phone.

Whole system is borked. Have never had another phone service that failed to send text with their standard phone service, expecially when that service is advertised as "voice and text".

Hello,
My husband and I both are having texting problems for the past week or so. We both have the LG Rebel, LGL44VL phone. When attempting to text, it will not send and continually says....sending..... eventually the text is just deleted. I have not received texts from him and others as well. We have rebooted, removed the battery all with no result. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
