***Announcement: Early next week, we’ll be merging the current Fios and Wireless Communities into the all new Verizon Community! Beginning the evening of Sunday 12/4, both Communities will be placed in read-only mode. You’ll still be able to visit the Communities and browse content, but login will be disabled. On the afternoon of Monday 12/5, all users will be able to log into the new Verizon Community. We expect the new Community to be fully functional the morning of Friday 12/9. Additional details can be found in the Announcements board and under Featured Topics!
Trouble with texts to Android phones on Verizon plan

I switched Verizon plans and now my ability to text to Android phones is spotty—occasionally going through, but usually failing. This is no longer “simply” a problem with sending photos to Android phones, with which I have always had difficulty. Now even simple texts go through sometimes but not often. I have checked to make sure everything is enabled in my settings. A previous user (in February I believe), had this identical problem. But the solution that worked for him/her isn’t working for me because my own MyVerizon doesn’t offer the Manage Devices tab given in the prior solution. I have an iPhone11. And Verizon is zero help. Any answers here would be much appreciated.
