Have your husband text the word "stop" to 48369. This should take his number out of the iMessage system.

Go into your settings under messaging and make sure the box to send as an SMS if iMessage is unavailable is checked.

Hopefully this will get your messages sending/receiving to each other.Smiley Happy
