Lets show that iPhone who's boss! I'm sorry for the trouble this has caused, valveking09. We certainly want to see this resolved for you, and keep you a happy, loyal customer for years to come! If this is happening with a few specific contacts, it could be a routing issue. Can you confirm these individuals have your number listed as a 10 digit number, not 7 or 11 digits? If it is 7 or 11 digit, have them adjust to 10 digits. After, they will want to erase the entire text thread and start a new text message to you. This should then be received properly into our network and on your phone! If this continues, we can look into potential network roadblocks. Keep me posted!
