widat, Da prosecution rests, Yah Honah
I have a friend with Verizon and my boyfriend has At&t. My bf has NEVER been able to receive a text from my Verizon friend, on any of his phones. (they've both had multiple phones). But the verizon friend receives my bf's texts. I have verizon and my bf has always received my texts. Its weird.
my gf had an iphone 3gs and without exaggerating we text each other via handcent average of 4000 a month. no issues of us receiving sms. every now and them mms don't show up. it's like hit or miss with mms, about 70% time no mms

As a heavy texter, with around 10-15k a month texts(Total, not just sent), I can say the Droid is no different than any other Verizon phone. From experience, about 5% of texts wont make it. However on the Droid unlike other Verizon phones, there is no way to tell. Which is pretty dumb IMO. Thats usually when the gf texts me why am I ignoring her.

I couldn't receive texts from AT&T customers because something went wrong with the number porting process when I switched from AT&T to verizon. Odd thing was, it worked fine at first, but eventually I could no longer receive texts from AT&T. I was on the phone with Verizon for at least an hour while they tried all kinds of things. Finally they generated a trouble ticket. About four days later I got a text message from Verizon saying they fixed the issue. Indeed they did - it works fine now.
Handcent has a setting you may want to try don't know if it works or not. Under Retrieve message setting you can request delivery reports for your SMS and MMS messages.
There is also a setting to auto convert to MMS, experiment with that checked and unchecked.
In settings do you have the "Compatability check" checked off?
One more obvious thing, does the number you are using for your GF include the area code?
