We just upgraded to new Pixel 7 phones and now we are have noticed an issue when we send text longer than maybe 2 lines to one of our contacts that uses an iphone they will not receive the messages. If we split it up into 2 short messages it will work but a 4 line message they never receive even though it appears the message was sent and did not fail. We did not have this issue with our older Pixel phones.
Any other Pixel or Android users having this issue? Support wants to say the issue is with the person I am trying to text but we did not have this issue with older Pixel 2 phones and I can replicate this issue with 2 brand new Pixel 7 phones with more than one iphone owner.
I am able to send texts to iPhone users with my Pixel 7, also was able to with my Pixel 6 and Pixel 4XL. My wife sends texts to iPhone users all the time with her Pixel 7P.
What messaging app are you using, Google Messages, Verizon Message+, or some other text app? If you are using Google Messages do you have RCS Chat turned on?
You could try switching to Goggle Messages temporarily. It's easy to switch which app you want to be your default text/SMS app. Then see if you can send a text to the same iPhone user. That will narrow the problem to whether it is with your phone / or account vs the Message+ app.
We want to get to the bottom this issue. Are you able to try Google Messages or another message app?
One of the 2 messages that was not received was less than 2 lines. Sent a very similar message a day later and it was received. The problem seems intermittent, but very real.
