Cannot text with non-iPhone users

Ever since I got my new iphone 14 Plus in December, I cannot group text if someone in the group is a non-iphone user. I can text directly with them, but they can't send me photos. 

 

I've checked all my settings per Apple and everything is how it should be. This is most likely a carrier issue.  May someone reach out to me on this matter?

I have the same issue.  I've contacted Verizon about 3 times with no working solution so far.

I've had the same issue with my iPhone 11 since sometime last year.  I can't text to a group if there is a non-iphone user in it.  Lately, I can't even send a regular text to certain non-iPhone users.  I have a friend I'm able to text, but, now the gifs won't go through to him.

That's not the experience we want for our customers, debd11. In a few moments, you should receive a Private Note from us. Please reply there, so we can look further into this group messaging issue with you.
