International texting doesn't work?

I have tried sending SMS to a mobile phone in Senegal and it doesn't work. I have double, triple, and quadruple checked the number.  The phone number is correct.

 

Anyone else having a similar issue with other countries? This is the error I get every time: "SMS: Failed Try Again"

 

It's such a specific error message too! /sarcasm -_-
