There are a number of reasons why you might be having trouble sending text messages on your Infinix GT 10 Pro. Here are some of the most common causes:

Check the SIM card
You need to check your SIM card to make sure that it is properly inserted in your phone and that it is activated. If your SIM card is not properly inserted or activated, you will not be able to send or receive text messages.
To check your SIM card:
- Turn off your phone.
- Remove the SIM card tray.
- Inspect the SIM card for any damage. If the SIM card is damaged, you will need to replace it.
- Reinsert the SIM card tray and turn on your phone.
If your SIM card is properly inserted and activated, you should see a signal bar in the status bar at the top of your screen. If you do not see a signal bar, try restarting your phone. If you still do not see a signal bar, you may need to contact your mobile operator.
Checking your SIM card is an important troubleshooting step for any text messaging problem. If your SIM card is not properly inserted or activated, you will not be able to send or receive text messages.
Here are some additional things to keep in mind:

- If you are still having trouble sending or receiving text messages after checking your SIM card, you may need to contact your mobile operator for further assistance.

Restarting your phone is a simple and effective way to fix many common problems. It is also a good practice to restart your phone regularly to keep it running smoothly.
Clear the Messages app cache
The Messages app cache stores temporary data that helps the app run more smoothly. However, sometimes this data can become corrupted or outdated, which can cause problems with the app, such as text messages not sending.
Clearing the Messages app cache will delete this temporary data and force the app to download fresh data from the server. This can often fix minor problems with the app, such as text messages not sending.
To clear the Messages app cache, follow these steps:
1. Tap and hold the Messages app and tap on App info.
2. Tap on Storage & cache, and tap on Clear cache.
Please note that clearing the Messages app cache will delete all of your temporary messages, including images, videos, and audio files. However, your permanent messages will not be deleted.
Check for updates
You should check for updates because software updates often include fixes for known bugs and security vulnerabilities. In some cases, a software update may also include new features that can improve your phone’s performance and functionality.
In regards to the problem of text messages not sending, a software update may include a fix for a bug that is causing the problem. For example, if the problem is caused by a bug in the Messages app, a software update may include a fix for that bug.
To check for updates on your Infinix GT 10 Pro, go to Settings > System > System update. If an update is available, you will be able to download and install it.
Once the update is installed, restart your phone to apply the changes.
It is important to note that software updates can sometimes cause problems, so it is a good idea to back up your data before installing an update.
Check the phone number
You should check the phone number when you’re having trouble sending a text message because it’s possible that you’re typing the number incorrectly. Even a single typo can prevent your message from being sent.
Checking the phone number can help you to identify any errors and correct them. It can also help you to rule out the possibility that the problem is caused by an incorrect phone number.
To check the phone number, simply review the number that you have typed into the messaging app. Make sure that the number is correct and that you have not made any typos. You can also try saving the number to your contacts and then sending the message.
Go through the error message
You should go through the error message because it may provide you with clues about what’s causing the problem. For example, if you’re getting an error message that says “Message not sent: Invalid phone number,” then you know that the problem is likely caused by an incorrect phone number.
Going through the error message can also help you to narrow down the possible solutions. For example, if the error message says “Message not sent: Network error,” then you know that the problem is likely caused by a network issue, such as a poor signal or a problem with your mobile operator’s network.
To go through the error message, simply read the message carefully and try to understand what it’s saying. If you’re not sure what the error message means, you can try searching for it online or contacting your mobile operator for assistance.
Here are some examples of how going through the error message can help you to fix the problem:
- Error message: “Message not sent: Invalid phone number.”
- Solution: Make sure that the phone number you are typing is correct. You can also try saving the number to your contacts and then sending the message.
- Error message: “Message not sent: Network error.”
- Solution: Try sending the message again later. If you are still having trouble, contact your mobile operator for assistance.
- Error message: “Message not sent: Message too long.”
- Solution: Shorten the message and try sending it again.
If you are unable to fix the problem after going through the error message, you may need to contact your mobile operator for further assistance.
