Samsung Galaxy S5 Text messages are not sent – solution

If you send a text message with your Samsung Galaxy S5, it may happen that this remains stuck in the Outbox and is not sent. Usually this problem can be fixed with one of the following approaches:

First: Restart your Samsung Galaxy S5 to ensure that all errors are excluded, which are caused by a SystemApp that does not work correctly. In general, the SMS sending works then again as usual.

Second: Verify with your Samsung Galaxy S5 that the correct number is entered in the message center. To check this, please proceed as follows on your Samsung Galaxy S5:

Open from the home screen:

Menu --> Settings --> Section "Applications" --> messages --> text messages

In this menu you can now see the message center. Tap the entry and check whether the number for your provider is correct:
