That definitely does sound strange. Let's get this figured out. May we ask what model device you are using?

Hi...I actually have a ticket into VZW with the same issue.

I had been successfully using Messages+ on my iPhone 5S and able to send/receive texts with all of my iPhone contacts (using Messages+).  I finally upgraded from 9.x.x to 9.3.5, and realized last Friday that I was no longer receiving texts from iPhone users.

When speaking to the very nice VZW developer / support person this morning, she indicated that I never should have been receiving texts from iPhone users while using Messages+, as the two platforms were different.  I shared that all was working fine until last Friday.

Obviously, something has changed.  I do more texting from my PC than my phone, and will be very disappointed if I can no longer use Messages+ to do so.

Any help would be appreciated!  🙂

You just need to turn your imessage off, restart phone, turn imessage back on. This should work.

Hi dmonetc...thanks for the response.

I'm getting iMessages to my phone, but not via Verizon Messages+.  Specifically, I am not receiving iMessages to my PC or mobile version of Verizon Messages+.

Hi HarleyE_VZW...thanks for the reply!

I have deleted and reinstalled the app on my phones several times.  The good folks at Verizon still say that Messages+ was never compatible with iMessages.  However, I sent the Verizon tech several screen shots of texts sent and received by iPhone users via the PC / Web version of Verizon Messages+.  Verizon has given up on me, stating that although they concede that it used to work for me, it should not have.  🙂
