    I can send text messages but for some reason I can receive text message from everyone. I can only receive text messages from certain people. I had a friend in front of me. I sent him a text message and he received it. He replied to me and I never got it. I have unlimited text messaging so I should have this problem. Help!

    I experienced this at one time.
    Try replacing your SIM card. It helped me.
    Or have tmo troubleshoot your phone.

    Have you recently ported your number? Are the people you're unable to text with different carriers? I've seen where that has happened before. If that's the case, the carrier can submit a case to verisign.

    This is true. But usually after about a day or so after the port, they can receive messages from other carriers.

    I used to have the same phone # with another carrier and had it transferred to t-mobile. Could that be the problem? It's weird cuz I can receive text messages from some people but not all. What/who is verisign.

    It's been about 3 months or so and I've had this problem the whole time. I've pretty much ignored it but now I'm tired of it. Friends tell me that they text me but I never get them. However, I get text messages from others. It's weird.

    Verisign is basically an outside company...They can check to the systems to see if there's an issue with send/recieve txt between different carriers. For example, I had a customer call in who'd ported her number over like 2 days ago. She wasn't able to send/recieve text from people who were with the carrier she ported from. I called verisign. They put in a ticket, and a few days later...issue resolved.

    I changed out the SIM card and T-Mobile refreshed me on the network. Unfortunately, it didn't fix the problem. I still can't receive text messages from some people. Any suggestions?
