Hi, my name is ***** ***** welcome to Just Answer. I'll be the one to assist you with your question regarding your issue today. I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question

The first thing that comes to mind is if your iMessages are turned ON and your setting to allow TEXT MESSAGES to be sent upon failure is OFF then this would explain why this is happening.

Could you check this please by going to Settings then scroll down to iMessage

Let me know

Thanks Mike

As a note, iMessages can not send to an Android platform so they are sent as a text message BUT it has to be set that way in the app
