    Okay so this problem has made me incur a huge tirade from my girlfriend.

    here is my problem :

    i have the droid on verizon, she has the iphone 3g on att.

    When she sends me text messages, i can recieve them.

    When i send her text messages, she doesnt recieve them.

    We didnt find this out until about two days ago after she thought that i was ignoring her for a good month, which i wasnt.

    Oh, and she lives in seattle, i live in california. lol, im not sure if that has anything to do with it, but its the only thing that i can see.

    All my other contacts can recieve anything i send them.

    SO is it my droid or her iphone that is not working?

    Hasn't happened for awhile now but at least when I sent messages sometimes it would just send stupid blank messages and would piss my GF off as well as me haha
    It did that frequently too but haven't seen that happen in awhile.

    Idk but Hancent is doing good to me, what are you using?

    Thats kinda happening to me too. i also call my Boo everynight so she knows im not ignoring her. BUT its odd sometimes she gets them sometime she dosent.... Shes on the new curve with att (weve had nurmous arguments about our phones =p and she normally wins beacouse it usualy ends with a..."Yes dear'..from me) if i send them twice she usualy getts them.

    Don't you ever see those "There's a map for that" commercials? She's got AT&T. Their coverage sucks.

    It would be absolutely HILARIOUS if AT&T was blocking Verizon customer's texts lol! I know they're not, but the fiascoes that keep occurring related to AT&T blocking Android/Google left and right (The two App Store conspiracies) really make you wonder...

    I use handcent and text to my friends' iphone on at&t and they get it instantly.

    i text mostly to another friend who is on sprint, and she gets it instantly.

    sounds like a bad signal or faulty app.

    If you're using handcent, reinstall it. If you're not, install Handcent, you won't regret it

    My DROID does the same thing. I have no way of knowing which messages are not recieved, until I get some negative feedback.
    Def. not the phone for sailors.
    :icon_ devil:man and just think, text messaging used to be so simple.

    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. :icon_ devil:

    Well, you really can't tell if someone else gets it on other Verizon phones unless you're texting a Verizon phone. That (d) will show up no matter what it's whether or not your see the (r) that really lets you know if your message was sent.

    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?
