    Anyone have an issue with not receiving texts? I've had it happen 3 times that I know of, for hours at a time. Sending works. Using hangouts, but the issue is with sms.

    That could well be a network issue. Try sending a text to yourself from the dance phone.....

    I've had the issue on and off for months. Finally deleted pushbullet and I havnt noticed it again, but It definitely could have happened because realizing it isn't easy. I use textra as my main app, but deleted that for a month and used the stock app when pushbullet was still on my phone and the same thing was happening. I'm hoping it was a notification sync issue. Absolutely so annoying when it happened.

    My messages+ is acting funky! The pass few days I wouldn't know that I had a text until I would go into the app. Then one of my co workers asked me did I receive her text and when I go into it, it's blank! I restart the phone and a message about updating the message data came up.

    I've had issues with texts before if I'm on WiFi having issues. As soon as I left the building & disconnected from the WiFi, the texts poured in.

    I'm on unlimited data but when I walked to the other end of the office all these emails poured in.

    Unlimited data or not, if you're connected to WiFi, it will try to go through the WiFi for certain things. No idea if that's relevant to your situation, just clarifying that funky WiFi can cause havoc no matter the data plan.

    I had this happen to me over the weekend. Received texts up through Saturday night, and then none. I didn't figure it out until I was the one phone in our household not receiving update texts from my daughter's school that we had subscribed to.

    I ended up shutting down and restarting the phone and it seems to be working since then.

    What made it harder to track down, was that only SMS was effected, but MMS, which included group chats, worked fine and I could still send out, but not receive.

    Made for a bit of embarrassment when I sent some texts to another parent on Sunday and sent a follow up asking if they had gotten my earlier message. When I saw her a couple of days later, she showed me where she sent about eight responses to my two texts, but none of them ever made it to my phone.

    Happened again tonight. Rebooted and started working again. This was after Verizon techs looked into the issue and said it was fixed.

    Is this only happening on Verizon Messages+? If so, how about switching to the stock Android Messages app?

    I'm having the same issues that I was having again, after a Verizon tech said that the issue was resolved.

    That's a terrible issue to have! It happened to me too, but it only seemed to happen with one contact that I knew of. Sometimes I'd have random glitches with others, and I think I'd been using stock and Textra over those years. I dunno, it could be the network connection or your data connection if you're using Hangouts... It could be a whole slew of things. It's unfortunate that this is happening, especially since Verizon had told you that they had resolved the issue. Please keep us updated on what's happening!

    I'm using the stock messages app. So far, I haven't had any more issues since the reboot. I can at least receive SMS from my wife. Of course, I can't really know if I'm missing other messages if I'm not expecting them.

    My wife and daughter both have the Z Force as well, but mine was the only one that had this problem.

    A couple more thoughts - I didn't have this issue until after I got the Nougat update. Also, after getting Nougat, the IFTTT app would crash constantly. I've had to finally uninstall it. I was using it to send an SMS to my wife when I arrived at the office, so I know that's one difference between my phone and my wife and daughter. Don't know if those are common denominators for anyone else.
