1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I have a lot of family & friends abroad, & it's obviously important to me. Prior to switching to Verizon I was on a U.S. based gsm network, so sending texts internationally was never an issue. However, when I recently switched to big red it was a problem right out of the gates; mine weren't being sent or received & visa versa. Fortunately, activating [free] international dialing it fixed the problem entirely. A few weeks later I installed handcent on my phone, & suddenly the problem reappeared. At first I thought Handcent was to blame, so I uninstalled it - nevertheless the problem persists. Albeit, I'm able to send text [which are received], but texts sent to me are not.

    I just got called VZW & asked them if they changed anything on their network/system - no. So, I'm perplexed... Furthermore, I was told that there is nothing that Verizon could do - since my text are being received. I was told that I should have my friends & family call their carriers to see if anything was changed on their end. But all these people are on multiple networks - and I doubt all of them suddenly made changes to their network simultaneously which would prevent texts from being sent to the U.S.

    Any ideas and/or suggestions?...

    Have your family and friends stored your number as a full international number?

    Yes; their texts were coming through before just fine. Furthermore, even if I send a text, & they hit 'reply' on their phone, it still doesn't go through.
