How to fix it

When having issues with text messages or iMessage from an Apple iPhone 7, it is most likely coming from a software issue and can be solved easily with below quick fix.

Turn iMessage OFF

First of all, find out where there the problem is exactly, as it can be either form iMessage or from the standard text messages:

Go to Settings > Messages and shut iMessage off.

When iMessage is off, try sending a message.

If you are able to send a message, then the problem is with iMessage. It is important now to check that the Internet connection is working when using iMessage. If no Internet available, it is better to turn off iMessage to stay in the clear. If an Internet connection is always available, then check these steps to have the iMessage working again:

Sign out of iMessage by going into Settings > Messages > Send & Receive, tapping your Apple ID, then tapping Sign Out.

Restart the Apple iPhone 7

Turn the Apple iPhone 7 off and back on again,

Go to Settings > Messages and select Use your Apple ID for iMessage,

Try the iMessage with a new test sending a text message.

Reset network settings

If that didn’t work out, then the next step would be to reset the network settings:

Go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.

Recreate the contact

Make sure the recipient contacts info are correct,

Check that the phone number and email address are correct. It might be necessary to delete the contact from the phone, and add it again as a new contact with the right phone number, including the country code.

In the Settings > Messages > Blocked check that the recipient is not on blocked list, in which case it has to be removed from the list.

Shall the issue still exist for a specific contact, delete all conversations with him, and try to restart the Apple iPhone 7, it should normally then work out.

Go to Settings > General > Software Updates to make sure that all software are up to date, and, if not, apply all the possible updates.

Further help

If nothing worked, then the phone should be reset, or you should take it to a professional as it might be due a serious hardware issue.
