    The last couple of days I've been trying to send texts to a girl and it keeps saying message not sent (error 21) it's driving me crazy, because it's only doing it to her. It sometimes works at night but it doesn't work all day. Please help, thank you.

    Sounds like a network issue on her end.

    It sounds like either she's had her number disconnected, is having service problems, blocks text messages in general, or has blocked you. :(

    See I don't know how because it just now happened in the past couple of days. Never happened before.

    Yeah, I didn't think that was it, but I just wanted to cover all bases. Does calling work?

    Yeah. That's why I'm so confused it's just texting her sometimes. So it's not like she disabled it.

    If it's just her, and none of your other contacts, and it still works sometimes it definitely is on her end. By any chance is are the message you're sending unsuccessfully media messages? (pictures, videos, etc)?

    Has she updated her plan, phone, or SIM card recently?

    I recently swapped plans with the same carrier and continued using my year old phone. I was assured that I could use my 2-3 year old SIM card in the same phone with the new plan. Some messages were sent and received and some were not (mostly MMS).

    Swapping to a new SIM fixed it.

    This is probably not the case but I have a 'femtocell' in my house for my carrier (Vodafone) here in the UK. It gives me a 3G signal over my broadband (it's for cases where you don't have a mobile signal at your house but can get broadband) BUT never lets me send a text as an MMS. It'll do a normal text message with no problem but an MMS is a no-no. I'd look into it further but as I rarely send a normal text it's not a problem.

    But I already have perfect signal. I even have tried through WiFi, I got the same result

    Sounds like an issue with her carrier. While you're waiting for her to get this handled with her carrier, you can both install Yahoo Messenger (or better yet, Trillian) and text via messages with one another that way. Best part about those options is they do not completely rely on your carriers. They can both be used over Wifi, too.
