Hi, I am in China now. I added international roaming text but it doesn't work. I added international voice and data roaming and restarted my phone, still not working.

Did you attempt to do a network reset? Check step 6: https://support.apple.com/en-ca/HT201415 You will lose wi-fi login info and paired BT connections.

I see that you have an iphone. Is it not receiving or not receiving and sending? What about from non-iphone users? Do you have imessage shut off?
Yes, I have iphone 5. I do have imessage on. I turned it off, but still not working. I can't receive and send any message.

Do you say it worked and now it doesn't work anymore
No. It only worked in Canada. It never worked when I got in China. I can't receive and send any messages in China. I got the confirmation add on before I left Canada.
How do I make it work? Thanks

Hello Maggie.

Are you sure you're having a network in China? What does it say on top left of your iPhone? Are you sending the texts to the good number? Pay attention that sometimes iMessage send to an e-mail adress. Therefore, when you're in China, it won't work unless you send it to the good phone #.
The problem never get solved. I added the international text roaming add on and got the confirmation before I left, but it doesn't work. It's really painful

Where does it say that message blocking is active? On your phone or the person trying to send you an SMS from the US?

Then it sounds like the problem is on the senders end. Maybe their plan doesn't allow international texting?
