The person I am trying to reach text is not available at this time. Please try again later.

This error code generally indicates that the person you are trying to reach is not available to receive text messages at the moment. There could be a number of reasons why this is the case, including that the person's phone is turned off, they are out of range of a cellular signal, or they are otherwise unavailable to receive text messages. If you continue to receive this error code when trying to reach the person, it is likely that they are not currently available to receive text messages.
