Friend cannot text me

One of my friends always receives my text messages, but he can't reply or send me a message.  He is also with Verizon and told me that he contacted Verizon about this problem.  It still has not been resolved, this has been going on for over a year.  Any idea what we should do next?

Is their number blocked on your side? Check your MyVerizon account.

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

No, friend is not blocked on my side.  That was the first thing I checked and just checked again to make sure.  The really strange thing is that I recently switched carriers and the same thing was happening with my previous wireless provider.  I thought switching to Verizon would fix the problem, but no luck.

Has he tried deleting your contact info and just texting to your number? If that doesn't work, maybe you should try it from his phone.

I had that same problem when I switched from Virgin Mobile to Verizon and ported my number over to Verizon, it turned out that Virgin Mobile does not let you port a number over and use the number for texting. I went through 4 months of back and forth over this until I found out that it was Virgin Mobile that was blocking the text from Verizon to Virgin Mobile I ended up getting a new number from Verizon and that solved the problem.

I not only deleted my contact friend off my iphone, but I also deleted all his message feeds and then his text came through to me. I have an iPhone 11 Pro and he has a new Samsung 20e. All works fine now receiving all his text.
