A few days ago I sent a text message to a friend whom I have texted with previously with no problem. She called me to say the texts are coming to her as just a box with nothing in it. It happened to another friend the next day. I called Sprint c/s and they told me to reset my network settings, but that didn't help. I wonder if anyone else has this issue? The two people who are not getting the texts do not have iphones, but I have previously texted them on the phones they have and the messages always went through. All my texts to other iphones are going through fine. HELP!
With problem only happening with 2 senders It sounds like the problem is on that side.Do you know what carrier the other person is using? Let me know.
Another long shot:
Try turning off MMS Messaging. Go to Settings > Messages > MMS Messaging OFF. Then send a message to a non-iPhone and see if it's OK. Make sure Settings > Messages > Send As SMS is ON.
abe2020 - they have Verizon - but I have texted with them previously without problems..this just started a few days ago.
Same problem here off and on for a month. One recipient is a sprint customer...the other verizon......and the one gets charged even for blank texts that I sent.
