I have an iphone 6 on verizon and all of the sudden I can't send text messages. It says the message never goes through. I can send/receive imessages and receive texts. If I turn off imessage I can send texts.
Any thoughts?

It's possible the device is trying to force all sent messages as an iMessage. The people you text could have possibly previous had their number tied to an Apple ID.

Under settings is "Send as SMS" enabled?
