turn off your imessages. imessages works more like an instant messenger (relying on data) between iphones. to force all messages to come through as text messages go to settings > messages > turn iMessage off

Hello dirtndrag. Let's get your text mesages flowing in again stat! I realy heavily on my own texts to communicate properly. I see you have the iPhone 6. When did this problem begin? Is this issue happening with all types of phones or only iPhones? Is this happening in a  specific zip code? Share details. Thanks in advance.
