When my text doesnt send because of cause code 98 what does that mean!

Sources suggest that the Verizon SMS Cause Code 98 error means "destination not authorized to receive".

Here are some steps you can try to follow and get the issue resolved:

Confirm that the destination number is 10 digits in lengths.
Verify how much device memory is available on the phone.
Check to see if there is a software update available on the device.
Delete any long threaded text conversations.
Perform a battery and sim card pull (if it’s a 4G device) on the phone.

Once you have completed these steps, please retest the SMS service for consistency. If the issue still persists, contact Verizon Customer Service on (800) 922-0204 or dial *611 from your mobile phone.

Tip! To find the latest updates about Verizon, just visit their Facebook page or follow them on Twitter @verizon.
