Check in your message and call settings that you haven't added them to your reject/blocked list.

If you've recently changed from an iPhone it is prob because the people who's messages you aren't getting are sending them as imessages to you. they need to tell their phones not to send messages to you as an imessage

Nexus 5 loving it's new lollipop!

They need to really disable iMessage themsevles else it will confuse other iOS devices:
