Straight talk Galaxy S3 cannot recieve texts from iphones
Okay, so I was with ATT when I switched to straight talk. While I was with ATT I had an Iphone 5. I ported the number from my Iphone to my new straight talk phone which is a Samsung galaxy S3. I can call out and receive calls. I can send out texts as well but only people that have Samsung are able to reply to my Samsung phone. If I send a text out to someone with an Iphone their reply is sent to my deactivated Iphone. I have turned off IMessage on my iphone and I still cant receive texts on my Samsung. Do U need to get a SIM card or maybe a SD card? Do I need to mess with the VPN settings(I haven't messed with it yet)?
My android version is 4.1.2
I am extremely new to all this and any help would be great!.
