Hi, 

I use google voice for personal use their is only 1 person in which I contact through google voice and it is on a regular basis. I have been using it for over a month now and every week or so i'll have issues in which it will no longer send messages for a few hours, but I still do receive them. It's obvious that it is not spam since it is one person I am in contact with and because that number is replying. It's very annoying that it will randomly act up and not allow me to use it for a few hours. I use it on laptop primarily and i've tried refreshing and logging out and back in. The last 4 digits of the person I contact is 8201. Please help soon.

Thanks

Hi:  sorry to hear that.
 
As long as you've demonstrated that you can send and receive text messages between your number and that other number, then the service is working properly.  If your messages get blocked, then it's caused by something you are sending, or the sheer number of text messages you are sending the recipient.  There's nothing Google will do about that.
 
Some general guidelines:
  • Don't send a large number of texts at once.
  • Don't send any URL''s in the text messages.
  • Don't send the same content over and over (like repeatedly sending the same words)
  • Don't send phone numbers in the texts.

I've tried sending other forms of messages but it's not working. Like I said it'll randomly stop sending text messages for hours every week or so.

Also, I tried sending messages to another number and it also won't work. Like I said it's quite frustrating that it would randomly just stop working for a few hours. Sometimes it'll be 2-3 hours other times more. When i try to send a message after a number of tries it would send 1 message but not the rest so I don't get what's wrong.

I've had this problem for a number of weeks when using Chrome on Windows 7 to send text messages, but only after my computer, and the open Chrome window, has been idle for some hours. I discovered that if I refresh the Voice tab in Chrome, the unsent text is not displayed at the bottom of the conversation, but if I re-enter the text and send it again, it is sent successfully.  This "fix" has worked for me 100% of the time I get the "Unsent" error, so I've come to regard it as an annoyance, not a critical problem.
