Unable to receive texts from one person only

Hello, I changed from O2 to EE, but changed back again within a week due to network coverage, since then I have one contact I am unble to receive texts from, I can send and she will get them, but she is unable to answer me, I have not blocked her but cannot rectify this problem, any ideas?

@MLaw are you 100% certain the number isn't blocked in your message spam list?

99%, I'm not very technically minded, if i look at the contact list and her name, am I correct to think it would state if it was blocked?

@MLaw only for calls in there. Open your message app and go to settings, then look for spam or blocked numbers in there.

It's most unusual to only have one number playing up if not blocked. I would completely delete the contact from the phone and reboot before trying again to receive a text.

I've had the same experience. One person receives my text but she can't respond. I believe she said the error message she gets says my number is not a valid number. Strange as even friends abroad can contact me.

You have blocked her I'm afraid. Open one of her previous messages and check the message settings.
