Was this an iMessage? Are you both using the same Apple ID?
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
That is pretty puzzling, MaryTy. I like puzzles! I think Ann154 was on the right track... are you and your husband both signed into the same Apple ID? When you receive those messages, are the chat bubbles blue or green? Blue would indicate they are an iMessage sent through Apple's services, and green would indicate it was sent through text messaging and our service.
