    text message to iPhone issue

    I've got an odd issue and wondered if anyone else has experienced this. Whenever I send a text message to my friend's iPhone he tells me that every other character is an upside down question mark. I haven't seen this for myself and can recieve text messages just fine. I can send text messages to people using other phones just fine (including iPhones).
    I am using speech to text to compose the text messages. I think it could have something to do with this or, more likely, with my friend's particular iPhone.
    Has anyone else noticed anything like this?

    Anyone have this issue occur? People tell me every other character is an upside down ? but I haven't been able to find a consistent pattern as to when this happens. So far it's just on iphones.

    That's what I thought until the second iPhone user I texted got the same type message. I still think the problem is on the iPhone end.

    Wow. I never heard of this. I have to believe it is associated with ATT or the Iphone.
    I bet if you told them Steve Jobs wanted them to stand on their head to read those characters they would

    I've had the same exact thing happen multiple times to my friends iphone. I can always receive his messages correctly but thats not always the case when I send him one.

    Re: text message to iPhone issue

    I've had this happen with three iPhones now (three different users in different locations) but not on every text. Maybe I'll troll around the AT&T / iPhone forums and see if there's any mention of it.

    That sort of problem usually suggests that a font being used on device cannot decipher a particular character being received. You may see it from time to time on websites, for example, with the apostrophe character.

    I don't know if the iPhone allows one to control display fonts or if a particular messaging app being used either on your friends' end or your end is at fault, but I suspect that is where the problem lies.
