Today I tried to use my google voice number and all I can get is "Your message was not sent because the SMS limit was reached. Please try again later or try sending to fewer contacts." I only send and receive 100-150 texts per day and so far today i've only sent and received about 20. I also receive this message when I try to send to any carrier "Error: this message was not successfully delivered."

Any thoughts? My Google # has worked flawlessly for over 2 years until today.... Thanks.

There was an issue this morning for sending SMS, but it should be resolved now. Thanks for your patience.

This just happened to me as well. Never seen this before but it's only to one person:  Your message was not sent because the SMS limit was reached. Please try again later or try sending to fewer contacts.

Go to http://support.google.com/chat/bin/request.py?&contact_type=chat_report_technical_issue select Gmail on where the issue occurs. Further down enable Sending & receiving text chats. In the Descriptive Summary state "SMS limit when texting" and in the section "What action were you performing?" Describe that this is happening in Google Voice user interface. Complete other fields to the best of your ability and submit.

I just had the 'limit reached' message a few minutes ago. I deleted all the texts in my inbox and it let me send again.

@ George80s,

...deleted all the texts in my inbox... That will not work (as you know :-).
Deleting your texts will not unsend a message.

...and it let me send again...  In time you will regain the ability to send texts.
There is not a known set of time you have to wait, however 24 hours should work.
