Text Issue

So here's a bit of a conundrum.

Husband and I both on O2. He text me today and I never received it. First thing he asked when he got home was did you get my text? (He had won a bowls tournament)

Things we have tried.

He can call me and I get the call

I can text him and he receives my text.

He text me on the landline. I received that.

My son has text me and I received that.

He has text my son who received the text.

 

Both phones rebooted. He text me after the reboot, I never received it.

So apparently I am the only one not getting a text from him. Though getting them from others.

Thoughts?

Re: Text Issue

Very strange @Cleoriff. I can only suggest a call to CS, or a new sim.

Re: Text Issue

I thought of a new sim @Bambino but not sure who should have one? Me or him?

Bottom line, he hasn't blocked me inadvertently, otherwise I wouldn't get his calls. It's only a text from him that fails.

He gets texts from me...so it seems a failure from him?

Re: Text Issue

You must have blocked him @Cleoriff. Open messages, settings, then look for reect list or spam filter

Re: Text Issue

Probably both @Cleoriff, but if you can, go to the store together. Do his first, test it, then do yours if swapping his doesn't resolve the problem.

No checked that @jonsie. I haven't blocked him as he called me and I got that call.

Re: Text Issue

messages have their own filter settings...check both phones but its more likely to be the receivers phone becase the sender would get a fail to send error.

Re: Text Issue

This has all been in the space of 90 minutes by the way. He first text me from the bowls club at 1.30pm. Once he got home and asked if I had the text, we ran our own series of 'diagnostics' as shown in my OP.

Re: Text Issue
