Anyone having problems getting text messages from stores or companies that send them daily or weekly texts? I am and when I contact Verizon they want to try to tell me that it is the company sending the text. Really hard for me to believe when there are at least 5 daily texts I should be getting and dont get any of them. Anyone know what I can do cause they wont help me fix it and I am ready to leave to another provider.

Do any of the messages have option to stop the the messages?  Often it is replying "STOP" without the quotes to remove you from the mailing list.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

I am reading it as they want to get the texts but they are not coming through from the business.    Do any of the companies belong to twitter?  I know I have no trouble with texts from twitter and Joanne's craft store is on their so I get their texts through twitter.  What are a few of the companies you are having trouble with?  Mary

I want to be getting the texts I am supposed to get a text message every morning from the weather channel with my local weather and then if there are any storms. I am also supposed to be getting mobile coupons from Target. I have even gone and tried to reenter my number on there sites and still dont get text messages but show I have an account with them and they are sending them to me.

There are also a few more places that I should be getting the messages and I am not.

Can you give me the link to sign up for target and I will check. I am not seeing where to sign up on their site for texts just to print the coupons online. I will see if I can sign up for the weather channel too. If you want local weather you can use google text 466453 and text weather and your zip code so for me it's weather 14075 and I get a text back with the 3 say forecast gor my area. You can Also use this to search other stuff. Mary

Ok signed up for the weather channel and found target too. Got the target text right away but you need to click a link to get the mobile coupon so I am thinking you need a smart phone. I know when I get tweets with photos on my phone I can't see the photos as there is a link to click and I assume because I get them as text is why I can't see the photo. Maybe someone can tell us how it all works. Mary

All of a sudden I stopped getting reminders from Google Calendar that were sent via SMS to my phone.

For Targets you just need internet because it opens up in your internet on your phone. I do not have a smart phone and was always able to get my messages from them till recently and Verizon just keeps trying to say it is the company and not my phone. They wont do anything to help and they are about ready to loose a customer that has been with them for a very long time.

I also tried to sign up for the Google weather you mentioned and didnt even get a message for that.

The  target texts came through fine but I just could not click to go to the link as there was no way for me to click the link in the text and I don't have internet anyway to access the coupon.  I thought you menat you were getting the coupons right in your text or something without having to go to the internet to get it.  I would unscribe and then sign up again and see if it comes through.  As soon as I signed up it came through in a matter of miinutes.  If you have internet maybe that have an app that would work better for you.    Mary

I cant do any apps on my phone because it is not a smart phone unless there is a way to do apps on my phone which I dont think there is. I have tried to unscribe to them and the others and I wait like a day or two before I go to resign up and still get nothing
