Hi jesse lynn, welcome to the Google Voice (a telephony product) community forum!
NOTE:  if you are not the original poster (jesse lynn) in this discussion, then STOP, and create your own, new, dedicated discussion, so that we can offer you individual assistance.  Thanks!
If you previously had a working Google Voice number, and you were able to successfully send and receive SMS messages, and now the messages fail to send, then:
Open a laptop or desktop computer's web browser (not a tablet or smartphone).  If you're using Google Chrome Browser or Safari, press Ctrl-Shift-N to open an incognito browsing window.  If you're using Firefox, press Ctrl-Shift-P to open a private browsing window.
Sign into the correct Google/Gmail account that holds your Google Voice phone number, and go to voice.google.com
  • If you see the page below, then your use of the Google Voice service has been suspended.  You will not be able to use the Google Voice number, nor port it out, unless you click the "contact us" link on that page, and Google agrees to lift the suspension.  If Google denies your appeal, there is nothing else you can do.  You can no longer use Google Voice.  Nobody here can do anything to help you; we will not respond to additional questions nor requests for help.
  • If your Google Voice service has not been suspended, (i.e. not showing the error page above) please wait 24 hours before attempting to send an SMS again.  Warning:  if your SMS function is restored after 24 hours, then it had been temporarily disabled for text messaging patterns that may indicate abuse (e.g. spamming or other behavior that violates Google Voice's Terms of Use and Acceptable Use Policies).  These behaviors may include, but are not limited to, sending the same or similar message to many recipients, sending URL links, sending illegal information, or sending many one-way messages without replies.  Don't repeat these patterns, or your use of the service may be permanently revoked.
  • If your Google Voice service was not temporarily disabled, and you have waited 24 hours, and you still can't send text messages, then:
    1. Post a reply to this discussion, from the correct Google account that holds your Google Voice number.
    2. In that reply, include recent examples of text messages that failed to send:  don't include the actual body of the text message, but do include the date, time, timezone and last 4 digits of the recipient's phone number(s).
    3. Include the last 4 digits of your Google Voice number, and explicitly give Google Voice engineers your permission to examine your account.
