Won't send text messages, says Cricket here! we are sorry but your text message failed. Your destination not supported from your current location. I'm in Baja CA, Mexico and trying to text someone in the USA.

However I CAN respond to text messages and they go through.  I have the all everything unlimited plan. Any ideas or solutions would be apreciated... contacted Cricket wireless support and they couldn't figure out why... no help.

I am on an Apple phone. I could not send messages to an android phone. I was traveling and on a different providers cell. But I could reach Apple phones on the different provider. 

Fortunately, I never had any technical problems with texting. All my problems were in writing this message and no more.
