DALBRE14, I know how important it is to have be able to send and receive messages from all of your friends. Let's take a closer look at this for you. Can you tell me if your iMessages feature is turned on or off? https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/knowledge-base-207036/ .

I am having the same problem. I turned off my iMessage and then my husband couldn't text me at all from the same type of phone (iPhone 7).
