I am NOT able to send or receive from non iPhones I am unable to call tech support due to no coverage.

I am currently in Alaska for work... Been here for over a month and have almost two more months to go.  How come I am unable to send or receive from phones that are not iPhones?  I am on wifi and am able to connect to friends and family with iPhones but the ones without that... Can't send to. Any suggestions?

You need this.   Regular text messages do not go over wifi, but Message+ allows you to do that from android and computers.

Thank you. I did download that app and entered my phone number to get text... Tried multiple times and never got a text. I can only get text msgs from other iPhones so I believe that's the problem. None of this makes sense to me.  Thanks for the response though
