Re: Unable to receive texts from my husband's Iphone 3
This. What most likely happened is that you didn't disassociate your phone number with iMessage prior to switching (seriously, Verizon should train their folks to do this), so your husband's phone is still sending messages to you via iMessage, instead of a standard text message.

As a somewhat related suggestion, you could have your husband install Google Hangouts and use that for communication instead of SMS. This isn't a fix the text message problem (you'll still want to take care of that regardless), but just throwing it out there. Hangouts is great messaging platform...may not be as nice as iMessage (at least not in the SMS integration department), but it at least compatible with both platforms, has a lot of great features, and can be accessed from the desktop as well as your phone.
