I am using Android 6.0 and when I try to send SMS (via Hangouts or Messenger) to a 4-digit number I get a confirmation pop-up and then an error saying "can't send message with %SIM_name%, error 28"

I've tried to clear cache. Messages to regular numbers can be sent without any problems.

What's the hell?
