You probably need to turn off iMessages and use the Verizon Messages+application exclusively on the iPhone.

alysonj,

We want you to have access to your messages on your tablet. I love that feature with my computer as well so I know how important it is to have it. When did this start happening for you? Has there been any updates on your tablet? What have you tried already?

I have the same issue with texting to my Ellipsis. What was the resolution?

Kroddy, we want your messages getting through all of the time. Being able to have that on the go access, even without your phone, really makes a difference. Are the text messages being sent as iMessages? Are they sent directly from the Verizon Messages application? Had you previously seen messages from iPhone users on your Ellipsis?
