Trying to text somebody and the text always fails, texting my other contacts isnt a problem. I know it's the right number since I can call it and they pick up.

Remove the number from your contacts list

Delete any incoming and outgoing texts to and from the number

Remove any incoming and outgoing calls in recent call list ( if your phone has that option)

Now put the number in manually when you send a text
if you remove all trace of the number in contacts ( check to see if its stored twice) the number shouldn't be replaced by a contact name when you put the number in to text

When they reply you can save to contacts again
