Work switched to android Now I am not receiving texts from iPhone users

My work recently had us switch to android. Now when my friends text me they send texts as iMessages and the messages go through, but I am unable to receive any of the messages. They do not default to SMS. If the user selects to send as a text the text will go through.


However, this is not an option on group chats... So for example I am in a chat with 2 people and it was previously iMessage they still continue to chat in iMessage with no indication that I do not recieve the text.


I have never used iCloud or any other apple/mac device on my account.


I have deleted the iphone from my apple account.

I have changed my password.

I have deleted my phone number from my apple account.


What else do I need to do in order to get these text messages? I no longer have access to the iPhone.

My iPhone 4 will send messages to an android phone but not receive them

I have an iPhone 4 and my boyfriend has an android, galaxys3, and today at 12:57, after he sent me an emoji from his Hangout app, I was not able to receive any more sms messages from him. He can recieve my messages and text me, but I can only send him messages, not receive them. He stopped using the hangout app and returned to his normal text message app, which always works. The only messages I can receive from him are mms like pictures and such. I turned my iMessage off and can text other iphones with text message instead of imessage. My dad has a galaxy note and Ive been receiving his texts. My boyfriends dad tried texting me from his android and I didnt get his either. Ive turned my phone off and back on, did a hard reset on it, turned on airplane mode and then turned it off.

Search Open text messages using Spotlight or Messages App

This is my issue. I have been using the messages app and spotlight to search keywords and/or phrases in old text messages.


Scenario: Using the search bar in the messages app, I lookup Mac. It returns 2 results. I click the message I want to view and it opens the most recent message in thread. So I tried using Spotlight. Granted, it returns more results (about 6,7), but when I click the message to finish reading it, again, it opens the most recent message in the thread. Is there an app that actually searches messages and lets you view the message?

HT3529 read text message re-appears as new when other text messages received

Attempted to search for a discussion that matched my situation, but have not been able to.  I was wondering if someone can help here.  I use a iPhone 4S and frequently text to and receive from friends.  I also have group text with friends.  Recently, when I receive group text messages, it triggers individual messages I have already read to reappear as unread new message.  I have tried to delete the individual text message but the next individual text message takes its place in re-appearing.  I even deleted the group text but it still happens. 


I will backup and master reset if necessary, but wanted to get community input first. Any ideas?  Thanks.

Is there a way to listen to text messages on Iphone

Has anyone found a way or an app that wil allow you to listen to text messages sent directly to the phone via AT&T?  I have not found an app that works as of yet.  I would love to be able to hear and then dictate back.  This was something that was built in with a different smartphone that I had. I am thinking about switching phones because of not having this capability and the new driving laws.

iPhone 4 not receiving text messages after turned off

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.
