    I have a strange problem. My Android phone has stopped receiving text messages from only one person. Everything was working all right until a few days ago when I didn't receive a text from a friend. The friend has an iPhone and he even turned off iMessages (what I don't think so was an issues as like I said before he had it turn on when we were texting). I restarted a phone, did an update, nothing helped. Any idea what can it be? How to solve the problem? I pretty much can receive text messages from other people without a problem.

    Have you deleted the existing message thread and started a new one? Were you coming from an iPhone as well? Did you shut off iMessage before you switched if so?

    I want to keep the messages. No, I've always had an Android phone. He's always had an iPhone. Is there iMessage feature on Android OS as well? I thought it's only on iPhones?

    No iMessage is only for Apple devices! If you've always used Android and they've always used iPhone and the message were working I'm not certain what may have happened that caused it to cease to work now! His phone's iMessage on/off status shouldn't impact his messages to you as an Android user the entire time.

    The only thing I could think if to try would be to get him to started a new message thread to you.
