Text option just went away...

One of our admin could text and now all of a sudden the option is gone and she gets the error " A valid Phone Number is required to send text message to recipients outside of your company, Please contact your Administrator to add a direct number to your account." Does anyone have any idea what happen? All our other offices can text and all the settings are the same.

Up to 8 attachments (including images) can be used with a maximum of 1.0 MiB each and 10.0 MiB total.

You need to check if the user extension if it still have a number associated with it.

You can login into your RingCentral online account and select the User then click Phones & Numbers > Numbers

Do you able to see any number associate with it? If not you need to add a direct number.
