    W10 Phone - People App missing Send Message in contacts Profile

    Wife and I have W10 Icon phones running Build 14393.321.
    On my phone when I open People and select a contact it gives me a choice of Send Message or Call Mobile.
    On the wife's phone the Send Message choice is missing.
    Can't find an option for this so any help is appreciated.

    We both can go through the Messaging App and select a contact and it works.

    Hello to all.
    I have a similar situation to seek for help.
    Two weeks ago I upgraded my lumia 535 win 8.1 phone to win 10, with build No 10586.107. At about the same time my wife updated her lumia 550 win 10 phone to build No 14393.576.
    I have the option "send message" in the contact profile, so nothing changed during the upgrade. But my wife missed the option "send message" after the update, which was there just before! Now she has to open messages and choose the contact and send the message, which is annoying and consumes considerable amount of time, as she uses text messages very often.
    Is there a way to get back the option "send message"?
    I hope someone has the answer to fix it.
    I will be grateful.
    Happy new year!
