Thumbs down Issues sending SMS to Contacts

I am able to place phone calls to people in my Contacts list. But when I try and send an SMS, the area code is never included after selecting a contact and I end up getting an invalid phone number error.

I have gone into all the settings screens I can think of and found nothing. Really odd...

I have heard of this problem before and I think that the solution was to try to use Hangouts for SMS or some other SMS app. In other words, I think the shipping SMS app is broken in the way you describe.

I am sorry if this turns out to be misleading. I have a problem using SMS on mine because the keyboard covers the entry box.
