    Having a weird issue and couldn't find an answer. I have several group message threads that have iPhone users. Some threads I can send and receive with no problems, even if I'm the only non-Iphone user. However, I have a thread with four people (all iPhone users with different carriers). I had an iPhone 4S but made sure I disabled iMessage and such before switch over to a GS4 for a year. No issues with group messages.

    I happened to be with one of the four people (my brother) and he asked why I didn't respond to that thread anymore. Apparently they had been sending messages for awhile and I never get them. I has an iPhone 6 and when I checked his phone, it said messages were being sent as iMessage. I went back to the Apple website and confirmed my phone number is not registered with iMessage. When I create a new thread to the group, they can see my text but I cannot see their replies. My brother showed me his phone to verify.

    I'm not sure if this is an issue I can resolve or if it is something they need to do on their end. The weird thing is that I have other message threads with Iphone users and it works fine.

    It is more of an Apple issue. I have been having it since I switched from Apple ot Android almost 2 years ago. It is annoying as all get out.

    The problem is Imessage, Apple's way to screw up Android users.

    Ask if the thread he has going with you is one that was starte when you had your iPhone. If so, ask them to delete it and start a new thread. That thread is probably locked to go over iMessage to all of the iPhone users including your old account, even though you deactivated iMessage.

    I'll have him restart a thread and see what happens. My main problem was that it worked perfectly fine on my GS4. I didn't change phone numbers or carriers, just a new Note 4.
