samsung galaxy s4 not receiving messages from certain people
I traded in my iphone 3 for a Samsung Galaxy 4. When I went to transfer my music most of of my songs would not transfer itunes because of copyright issues. So most of my music is stuck on itunes, but not my phone.
Ive tried Double-Twist and Samsung Kies (which stinks, BTW) and had no luck.
Anyone have this problem? Know how to fix it?
i have just switched to samsung and i have removed the sim from the iphone however i am still receiving texts rather imessage on the old iphone. how do i make sure all messages only come to my new phone
Im not positive, but I am fairly sure it was the update to the Tab that caused the tethering function to become inoperative. Unfortunately I updated the iPhone soon after...and I acknowledge that it might have been that. In any case, it used to work perfectly - I used it alot - then it wouldnt work. It connects immediately...with a strong signal...and it *appears* to be assigned an IP address by the iPhone...but it wont surf.
The iPhone can surf fine by itself.
The Tab can surf fine by itself (when using home or public Wi-Fi)
I reset the network settings in the iPhone (which to my immense annoyance did not help)
Ive tried many times to forget and re-connect to no avail.
I renamed my iPhone to remove spaces & punctuation marks (no difference - and was not a problem before)
Have tried to tether via BT; devices *will* pair, but iPhone says they are incompatible and aborts the connection.
Is it possible that I have somehow blocked texts from certain people? When I send texts to that person they never get them and when she sends them to me I never get them....whats the deal with that?

I just had a quick question. Sometimes when I send texts with my Verizon iPhone...some people do not receive my texts? Its kind of annoying to be honest. I have checked and done everything, I have updated the roaming capabilites, I have updated the software itself and I have hard reset the phone. Is there anything else I can do to possibly help fix or resolve this issue? Any ideas or suggestions are more then welcome, thank you for your time.
Also one last question, kind of off topic, but will the Verizon iPhone be receiving the iOS 5 software update?
A colleague was getting connection failure errors on her iPhone (but I was not) so I was checking that all of our settings were the same (server names, SSL, port numbers, authentication, etc.).
I accidentally changed a setting on MY phone and starting getting the same error.
I couldnt fix it, so I deleted and re-added the account and its working again, except when I try to send myself test messages (from my Comcast, Earthlink, or other account). Im only receiving those messages on my laptop (Mac Mail) but not on my phone. I also tried to cc myself on a message and, again, only got it on my laptop but not on my phone.
It does say that I have 7 unread messages but it wont actually get them.
This is soooo frustrating.
BTW, I was unsuccessful at fixing my friends phone, but there are other threads about this problem and I think it might be the phone itself.

Basics: my husband and I share an AppleID. He has a 4 and I have a 4S, and both are on the latest iOS.
My name is Megan and his name is Steve.
About three days ago, whenever my husband texted me it would show up as if the text came from me. So instead of saying that the text was from Steve Jones, it said it was from Megan Jones. It would show up as read, be in a green/blue text bubble, and be on the right side of the screen. Incoming texts are always grey and on the left.
I started playing around with it and now he no longer receives texts when I send them to Steve Jones. If I respond to his Megan Jones texts, hell get em.
This morning he texted his mom and she responded. I was able to see both his and her texts on my phone and what he sent came from my name.
What is going on? How do we fix it?
How do I get my iphone4s to receive text messages from my banks?
Am I the only one with this problem? I can make and receive phone calls, but i cannot receive any text messages. It says I am sending a text and that it was sent, but no one is really getting them. I just upgraded my 3GS to the Iphone 4...should I call AT&T to get my messaging taken off then put back on to reset it or something? Thanks

I have an iPhone 4 with 4.0.1 OS. Just got it last Friday (yay!). Was able to receive and send texts for the first two days. Just noticed now that for the past few days Ive been able to send but not receive. Have asked a friend to send me a test message and nothing comes through. Nothing has changed in my set up or syncing that can account for this change.
Any ideas? Or should I be calling AT&T (shudder)?

I have two email accounts on my original iPhone. I noticed tonight when I checked my email on my desktop that there were messages in both inboxes, but they were never received on my iPhone. When I push the circular arrow in the bottom left of the screen to get my mail it just keeps saying, checking for mail. Usually when I go to my mail, I would notice that the mail was checked within the past hour or so (as I have set). But the past couple days it has not been checking unless I push the button to do so...but still not receiving messages. I tried to check the settings but couldnt get it to work. My passwords, etc. are fine. I just cant get messages. Is there something up with mail and the new 2.0 on the original iPhone? Thanks, Brian

My friend can only receive picture messages from other smart phones...she cant get any pictures sent to her from friends with out a smart phone. What do I need to change in settings
When I am at work I have to turn my iPhone 4 off because it does not get service in the building. It is off for around 8 hours/day. When I get done with work, I turn my iPhone back on and check my messages. It will show that I did not receive any messages. It will appear this way for several hours...until I make an out-going call or send a text. Then, it is like making and connecting a call, activates my phone and then I receive all the text messages/voicemails that were sent when it was turned off. I have Verizon and have called them but the problem has not been fixed. Has anyone else had this problem? My iPhone 4 is only 2 months old.
Ok I posted the other day about getting too much mail.... I get all my mail on both my iMac and my iPhone. So I was told to set the gmail account up as imap. I changed it to imap within Gmail then went to my iphone and deleted the old Gmail account and set up a new account using these instructions:
I was excited to half my mail however I woke up this morning and yet again, all my mail is in both places, the iPhone and the iMac, so what am I doing wrong here?
I just set up the imac mail to be imap and ummm right now its downloading 3277 emails! No one told me that would happen, I thought this was going to get me less email, not more! Yikes.

Other people with iPhones and myself have noticed that we receive texts hours later than when the other person sends the text. Also, i get the same text over and over again. Anyone know how to stop it? Anyone else have this problem?
My iPhone 4 isnt receiving texts or iMessages from other iPhones. Is there a solution for this?
It sends to everyone else except this certain person. Its getting really annoying. They have an iPhone also and have iMessage on and have no problems sending messages to me, but my iMessages will not send to them and I have to send them as regular text messages and even when I do that it takes almost 15 minutes just to send a text message.
I am not able to receive or send photo text messages
My iphone used to only receive unread emails as long as entourage on my mac wasnt open. Now i have moved to mac mail and my phone is receiving read messages from mac mail. Is there a setting im missing that will make my phone only receive new messages?
I still want my mac mail to receive these same emails later as it used to work.

My daughter has a new 5s, I have a 4s with a different carrier. She can text me but I cant text her, they just bounce straight back undelivered. She has received texts from other people. We both tried resettting network settings, restarting phones and deleted our contacts and re-entered them. Any ideas ?
Dont know what to do now, help? Tips? Anything?..
As of a month ago my voicemail box does not indicate that I have any messages and people have been telling me that they have left a message. How can I retrieve these?
I just bought iphone 4; I turned off SMS, but I am still receiving and sending messages and get charged.
is my phone not working propertly? or is it like this?
is there any way that I can only use imessage?
I dont recall having a problem with this before, but Ive been noticing that for the past 2 days I can no longer view an MMS message unless I download it to the iphone then go to pictures...irritating. I havent changed any settings. When soneone sends me a picture and I click on it it just says loading and never loads...yesterday it wassupposedly loading a pic for like 2 hours and I hit download and went to pictures and could instantly see it.
My iPhone on version 4.3.4 has begun to call random people when I try to answer other peoples calls to me. Does anyone know whats up with that?
Yesterday, I switched from the Iphone 4 to a Samsung Galaxy S4. However, I cannot receive texts from friends with iphones. For some reason, when they enter my number in their phone, it assumes it is an iphone number and sends an imessage. We have manually changed the contact info to say mobile instead of iphone. We have deleted and made myself a new contact. We have restarted phones. They can see the messages I send them from my new phone, but I cannot get messages back unless they turn imessage off. This is troublesome because I cannot ask every contact with an iphone to turn off imessage just to contact me. We traded in our old phones (my iphone 4), and it was completely wiped and restored to factory settings, so I do not know why this would assume my phone is an iphone. I talked to a Samsung representative and they said to talk with apple now.
This is basically a two part question. First, if I received an email in the native Mail application but have not yet received it on the iPhone after I have read it or deleted it on the mail app, I will then later re-receive the same message on my iPhone. Is there any way to prevent this? I have Comcast e-mail if that is of importance.
Second, I used to have a Samsung Blackjack and when I would receive an e-mail on the phone, and deleted it, when I would later send and receive with Outlook, the e-mail wouldnt appear there. Same thing applies the other way, if I didnt delete it, it would appear. Also, my e-mail filters would apply to receiving e-mail on my phone and I wouldnt receive items I had previously set up as junk e-mail. Again, is there any way to do this on the iPhone? Thanks for all your help!
