this is an easy fix, you need a country code, area code, and then the phone number, your format would look like this: +AZZZXXXXXXX
"A" would be your country code, if your in the US it would be 1
the "Z"s would be your area code
The "X"s would be the phone number
Yes i believe that the + sign is needed

Thank You but I have done this and it still does not work, before the 10.10 netbook remix update I could text people just fine through empathy,
