    Default not receiving all text messages

    I've had this phone for a little over a week and its been great. Recently, I've noticed I'm not receiving some text messages. My girlfriend has sent me texts I didn't receive. She has showed me her phone with the text message shown as sent.

    Has anyone else noticed this??

    By any chance are you coming from an iPhone? And/or is she sending them from an iPhone?

    Reason I ask is because their has been issues with imessage not deactivating when you stop using the device. I will wait for your response and explain further if this is the case...

    No, we both have RAZR Maxxes. I came from an HTC Thunderbolt and she had an LG Chocolate.

    Ahh sorry..wish I could help you. I see the iPhone issue all the time, figured I'd ask.

    I had text messaging issues once with Verizon on my thunderbolt.. I called and they changed some settings on their end and had me do the same. It resolved the issue. It was a network issue that needed to be corrected.

    I would give them a call.

    j1787: Believe I fit the category. I went from iPhone4 to Gal Note. I receive text from wife's iPhone4S but not other IOS devices. Saw same issue when I tried Nexus last month for x2 weeks.

    Yes, I've had this happen twice that I know of. Both were from people with iPhones, but I've never owned one myself.

    Actually, this occurred at least once last week, and caused some upsetness on my hubby's part.

    I'm not getting all text's here myself. It's rare that I don't get them but what's bothering me is that im also not getting calls. The only way I know I'm missing them is because all of a sudden ill have voice mails pop up with no missed call notifications. This is not happening when I have the phone on me as it will be on my desk or sitting somewhere that is stationary and not my pocket. And nobody I know is using apple products so its not related to other people's posts. I also have pretty much full signal in my house which is where it is happening. I do keep wifi turned on and also bluetooth if that has anything to do with anything.

    I haven't noticed any missed text messages since I turned on request delivery report on my RAZR and GF's RAZR.

    I've had 3 missed texts that I am aware of over the last month. Has anyone else still been experiencing these problems. Maybe a bad SIM? Any new outcomes via Verizon Cust Serv.

    I have confirmed that I have missed at least 2. 1 from a Droid charge and the other from an iPhone 4s. I have never owned an apple product.

    Default iPhone to iPhone texts great, to androids nothing

    My husband just got an iPhone today. At first we were able to text and now suddenly he can only send and receive texts from other iPhones. The rest of our family has Androids and are not going to switch to the iPhone.

    What are your ways of clearing I message? I came from an iPhone and my wife has one still and I'm not receiving some texts now.

    Whoever is having problems with receiving messages from Iphones. The above solution works, I just did it on my Razr within Handcent App.

    For anyone with this issue that's not apple related try a sim pull with the device turned off and the do a power cycle. My 3g to 4g handoffs have been inconsistent with this sim in my 5 gnex's and it seems to be the same in my maxx though not as severe so I'm requesting a new micro sim.

    I posted this in another thread but it is the same issue as here, so I'll post it here as something is very wrong with the whole thing. And by the way, O2 is a Network provider here in England ;-)

    Hello.

    I've just been browsing for the same problem, so I I'm sure you'd like to hear my ongoing issues as it's been a major nightmare for me and it helps to share the knowledge which I've acquired, so I've specifically registered with the forum to explain. I'll try and keep the story as short as possible, but there's a mountain of details, it's been that bad. And the problem has been with texts not so much phone calls not being received, although that has happened to my partner on her iphone4.

    This goes way back to when I first got the Dell Streak (Android). Prior to that I had a Nokia Ngage and I had no problems at all with texts going missing or merged texts. When my partner and I first realised that texts were being missed, which was after only a couple of weeks, we started numbering our texts, which we still continue to do today. Most days would miss texts, but the problem got worse as the weeks went on. She would get my texts but I wouldn't receive all of hers, some days a couple of texts wouldn't come through, other days 15-20. I had three different Streaks which they replaced for me and had the same issue on each one. This was over a period of about 8 months (yes I am patient... well...) and with dozens of visits to the 02 shop and on the phone to customer services. While the Streak was being sent off each time I had to temporarily use my old N Gage, yet there were no problems at all in that time, but when I got the Streak back it started again. Remember, at all times we're numbering texts to see which don't come through and yes we send a lot of texts to each other during the day, maybe 50 - 100.

    My partner even switched phones, to an iphone4 but the problem persisted. I then told 02 I wasn't going to have another Streak and wanted to change phones, which I did, to an HTC HD7 (Windows) and there were no issues at all with it for just less than a year and a half of my remaining contract. However, my contract ended so I was due an upgrade and I got the Samsung Galaxy Note on first day of release (May 11th 2012 I think). In the last four months I've had the same problems as I had with the Dell Streak with missing texts and also, like with the Streak, MERGING texts - A current text cut short and combined with one from weeks ago! I've made many calls AGAIN to 02 (which every time I ring I have to explain the whole thing over and over) and they've been trying all the bog standard fixes, like they did with the Streak, but no success with any of them. It has been elevated through 'Guru' to the technical engineers who have been in contact with me often to try and gather info and 'look into it'. I just want a phone that works!!!

    I've had enough with the missing texts and merging of texts, so last night I demanded they change the phone to a different model. (The HTC One X - Android is coming tomorrow). We also found out that it isn't happening just with my partner's messages not being received, as we found that some of my mam's texts didn't come through either and she is on the same 02 network as me, which eliminates the problem just being with my partner's Orange network and my 02 phone.

    We have literally tried pretty much every trial and error scenario there is and the only similarity with the whole thing is that both the Streak and the Note are Android based. Yes, I'm changing to the One X which is also Android, but we don't know it's Android for sure. However, it it happens again with the new phone I'd put money on the fact that it's something to do with Android software and if it does, I won't be using them again as I know the HTC brand worked great under Windows system.

    It may seem daft, but not receiving texts to your partner can stir up an awful lot of aggro and problems... that I've been ignoring her question, or haven't got back to her in time etc etc... you get the idea I'm sure. The worst has been when arranging times for things when it's not possible to call and we've actually missed events and outings because of it never mind all the 'discussions' after it!!!!! VERY ANNOYING!!!

    I'd advise anyone anywhere to start numbering their texts with their partner or whoever you text regularly for a few months or so just to see if there are any surprises. No-one is going to miss texts like "Went to see Batman and it was excellent", as they are just statements, but "Right, I need picking up at 4.30am please at the airport as my battery is nearly dead and I have no money left for taxi." You're in trouble now...

    It's a big issue and it's an ongoing issue and 02 said they'd never heard of it before. I said to them "well that's worrying me a lot because I had months and months of the same problem with the Streak". If it's happening with me, you can guarantee it's happening to a lot more people as well, but if you don't number them, you just don't know. So you're bang up-to-date, she's only sent 11 texts so far today and numbers 2 and 3 haven't come through, so she's had to resend them. What a joke!!

    I'll keep you posted with the HTC One X when it arrives. (UPDATE..HTC One X is going back due to wifi not working if I'm more than a few feet away from the router).

    Thing is mate, that there were no problems on the Nokia N Gage (dunno what that system was) or the HTC HD7 (Windows), both of which were on O2. The problems were with the Dell Streak and now the Galaxy Note, both are Android phones on O2.
