try toggling airplane mode on and off and see if anything happens.

You could definitely try toggling Airplane mode and/or doing a battery (if applicable) and SIM pull to refresh your network but in most circumstances, sent but undelivered texts only stay on the server for a limited amount of time. If they never make it to your phone in time, they'll get lost in limbo.

Okay thanks, it was a week so it might not have got to my phone and is it the same if I send out a message when my phone is deactivated ?

Hey Alecia! Since you’re phone/plan was deactivated, you should not be able to send messages out. ________________________ If you see a good answer, give it a star.
