When input any alphabet string in recipient field and doesn't match any contact, sending the message won't cause any error;

Reproduce step:
1. Fill "abcdefghij" in recepient field 
2. Write something in message
3. Tap "Send"

Expect:
User is not able to send the message, error shows.

Actual:
UI shows message sent successfully without error


More test data:
abcdefgh - show error - 8 char pass
abcdefghij - success - 10 char fail
abcdefghijklmn - show error - 16 char pass
There is no way to tell if text entered by a user is "valid" or not. iOS and Android don't make any such restrictions.

I'm wontfix'ing this—if anyone strongly disagrees, feel free to reopen

Additionally, the carrier itself _should_ send a failure message back to the user. There is nothing that Messages app should so special
