    For whatever reason I cannot send texts (sms or mms) over wifi over the past week. I'm on t-mobile in the USA. Once I turn wifi off and resend the texts go through.

    Any possible solutions? This happens in yaata, messenger, and textra.

    That's because you can't send sms or mms over wifi.

    What isn't possible? Sending a text with wifi enabled? That doesn't make any sense. Never happened on my PRIV or Passport. I could be connected to wifi and text without issue.

    To clarify, I'm not trying to send texts OVER wifi (sorry for my original wording) I'm trying to text when wifi is connected/enabled. I still have cellular reception. I never had a problem in the past.

    might be an odd wifi calling bug? I do believe sms and mms go over wifi if wifi calling is enabled

    thats what I mean. ur voice calls are going wifi but the sms + mms are having issues. ive had that before on my priv with tmobile and wifi calling. disabling wifi calling allowed me to have wifi on for data and send and receive sms's

    Confirmed. If I leave wifi on but turn off wifi calling, texts go through. Kind of a bummer because I don't get great service at home, but it looks like this is the only option for now.

    possible that wiping ur phone will fix this. but not certain. I just recall this happening to me at some point and then it eventually stopping. did it ever work?

    might be worth experimenting with ur wifi router. seeing if it works on another wifi network etc

    I Am on T-Mobile SMS seem to send just fine with Wi-Fi on - but MMS just hangs in the balance - but oddly it HAS worked sometimes - just turned off Wi-Fi and the MMS went through just fine - is this 3006 o_0 this is CDMA issues not GSM c'mon now how stupid - you gotta disconnect wifi to send a d### MMS (and for some others it seems SMS too ) what a JOKE - "unlocked" my arse - it seems like if the device isn't told by the carrier meaning they have their hand in the deal somehow then it wont function - im not alking about those $10 unlocked blu mi etc/ phones this a Moto, a KEY ONE , a SAMSUNG S8 - all "unlocked"phones seem to not get network support just trash - ok its all just trash- ok I said that already - for RIM to be so software focused the Keyone sure isn't optimized and give us SWIPE UP. hitting a button for app access is so last year

    I frequently text while wifi calling is enabled. I've had multiple friends complain that my text responses are delayed and all come in one after the other rather than appearing immediately after their text to me.

    I have just got a huge bill from Vodafone, it seems my texts are going via mobile internet and using up the data allowance instead of going via sms. Some texts go sms and are not charged and it seems random. HELP. I have had the priv for 10 months and this has only started in May 2018.
