Trying to text the US and am dialing 1 first. Have tried 011 1, +1,  any combo of the two etc.- nothing is going through. I have an international texting plan and have texted New Zealand, not sure what's up.

You don't need to do anything special to text the USA. You don't even need the one. If the text isn't going through, the problem may be with the recipients carrier. Maybe their plan doesn't allow texts from foreign countries? Have you texted this person in the past?

Verify that you have the correct number and try again.

When you are make that call and putting it through are you punching in the area code after the 1 and then the 7 digit #!??
