    I got my LG G2 about a month ago now and I have noticed that there are a couple of people that I don't receive texts from. Both are Iphone users and one is on ATT and one is on VZW. I'm clueless as to what is going on.

    Anybody have a solution??

    Hi I don't know the reason but have seen similar posts and believe it's something to do with imessage and if you previously owned an iPhone. I'm sure if you search on here or Google you'll find a solution

    (I'm assuming you were a former iMessage user)

    I had the exact same problem.

    Make sure you unregister your phone number from any other iDevices you may have. You can do this from the Apple site or the iDevice itself.
    In the iPhone message settings, have your friends turn on the toggle that allows for SMS to be sent if iMessage fails.
    Start a new text message thread with your friends and have them do the same.

    It's a real pain of a problem switching from iPhone to an android device, but it's so worth it. Apple just makes it really difficult to do so. I think your phone number is eventually deleted from the iMessage servers once you stop using it completely(?)

    If you've had an Apple device prior to your LG G2 and have utilized iMessage then you need to call Apple and speak to tech support. I just did it today and now I'm set. Tell them you want to remove your number from iMessage and they'll walk you through it. They told me that they would send me a message that includes a code that I would have to tell them over the phone in order for them to input it into their system to disable the link between your number and Apple. I never got the message so they told me to text HELP in all caps to 48369. When I did that I received a reply text that said;

    FREE MSG: Apple iCloud ID
    Verification: Reply STOP to Cancel.
    1msg/request. 1-800-275-2273

    Then another text that read;

    Please provide this verification code to
    your AppleCare advisor: XXXXXXXX

    (Actual code will be different and all CAPS.)

    They called me back and I gave them this code. After a few minutes she said it was successful. Just make sure to be polite. They really helped me out and I'm sure would do the same for you. It didn't cost me anything but about a half hour of free time playing with my phone. Hope this helps.

    I did switch from iPhone to samsung galaxy S 5 and wasn't getting some txts. I realized it was all iPhone users. I called 800 my apple and I had to be disconnected from the Apple server. They gave me a verification code in a txt message and I had to tell them the code. I just did it 2 min ago. I got someone to txt me from a iphone and it said "message undeliverable". I am hoping it works soon.
