Check these tips Guide: Text Message Tips (not sent or received) 

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

If the person you're texting has an android device and its running RCS Messaging (Chat features) then in Samsungs settings you need to enable the fallback to SMS if it can't be delivered over chat. 

 

In messages click the 3 dots and go to settings and select 'chat features' then towards the bottom ensure 'Automatically resend as a text' is turned on
