Why can't I send more text messages?
Learn about the limit for sending Text or Short Message Service (SMS) messages from Yahoo! Messenger, and how to resolve the error messages:
- "Yahoo! Messenger cannot send SMS messages to this mobile number."
Yahoo! limits the number of consecutive text messages you can send from your computer to a mobile number that isn't responding. This is designed to help prevent spam and other abuse.
Your contact's mobile device must be reset before they can receive additional text messages. The mobile owner should create new, separate text messages containing just the words:
- unblock all
- reset (sender's Yahoo! ID)
Send each message to the wireless carrier's short code listed on the List of Supported Wireless Carriers.
