Recipient getting blank messages when I text....S4 issue?

How does Messaging (ie. text messages) work? Does the message go over a wifi connection or does it have to be via LTE or 4G Data or whatever? I am trying to send messages to a friend in Regina (I am in Richmond, BC at the moment) and she says she's getting blank messages. I've checked a few of the ones I have sent and the phone says that they were sent. The thing is that this is not a constant thing...sometimes she gets them but more often not. Is there a setting I need to enable? I've done text messaging to others not in my area code and haven't had any reports of blank messages to them. The phone is a Galaxy S4.

Messaging(SMS) doesn't use data or wifi. As long as your phone has reception it should be fine. Try rebooting your device and trying a different SMS app like google messenger. Or if you're fine with messaging over wifi, there are many alternatives like FB messenger, hangouts, etc.

Sounds like the problem is with your friends phone
