Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge: How to Fix Cannot Send Premium SMS in Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow

If you cannot send messages to a short number in your Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge because you have accidentally set the permission of sending premium text messages to never allow, you have to change the permission to always allow so you can send messages to a short number again.

How to change the premium SMS permission?
You can do so by using the following steps:
  1. On any screen, swipe down the top of the screen to open up the notification panel and then tap to go to the settings menu.
  2. Scroll down the screen to find Applications and then tap it.
  3. Tap Application manager.
  4. Tap More at the top right and then select Show system apps.
  5. Scroll down the screen to find Message service and then tap it.
  6. Tap Send premium text message and then select Always allow so you can send text messages to a short number.
  7. The permission of sending premium SMS has been set to Always allow. Now, you can send a text message to a short number again.
