I can send, but am unable to receive SMS text messages from iPhone users. Confirmed with 4 friends who have iPhones.

Problem started maybe about a week ago. I've restarted my phone with no effect. No problems chatting with my iPhone friends through data-based apps like WhatsApp, or Google Hangouts when it's in non-SMS mode.

Chrisby,

Let's get you receiving those text messages. Did you recently switch to a droid after having an iPhone? Any new applications downloaded?

Have those four friends confirmed they have the settings turned on to send as SMS in their message settings?

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