Okay so this is so annoying, when I goto text one of my friends, I type in the Area code first:

(555) 555-5555

thats what it looks like, and it says that its not a valid phone number, Ive also tried it without the area code, and still the same thing, Ive tried it with the area code and a 1 in front of it, but still it says enter a valid phone number. AHHH this is driving me crazy. Any suggestions?

thanks

Well, I believe then his phone does not accept text messages. I just tried to text my house phone (which of course can cannot accept text messages) and I got your same error screen. Either it is a bad number, house line, or cannot receive text messages.

I text all the time with my iPhone, just this number and a couple others don't work for some reason.

If you have the person in your contacts, just find the contact under Phone, scroll down, and select Text Message.

I have this same problem and I have now had my phone for about 2wks. It just recently started acting like this a few days ago and it seems AT&T or Apple phone support don't have a clue on whats going on. AT&T tried to drop and re-add the data package but that didn't work. I'm thinking of taking it in to an Apple store and letting them look at it. Has anybody found a solution to this problem?
