One of my friends always receives my text messages, but he can't reply or send me a message. He is also with Verizon and told me that he contacted Verizon about this problem. It still has not been resolved, this has been going on for over a year. Any idea what we should do next?
Is their number blocked on your side? Check your MyVerizon account.
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
No, friend is not blocked on my side. That was the first thing I checked and just checked again to make sure. The really strange thing is that I recently switched carriers and the same thing was happening with my previous wireless provider. I thought switching to Verizon would fix the problem, but no luck.

I had that same problem when I switched from Virgin Mobile to Verizon and ported my number over to Verizon, it turned out that Virgin Mobile does not let you port a number over and use the number for texting. I went through 4 months of back and forth over this until I found out that it was Virgin Mobile that was blocking the text from Verizon to Virgin Mobile I ended up getting a new number from Verizon and that solved the problem.
I not only deleted my contact friend off my iphone, but I also deleted all his message feeds and then his text came through to me. I have an iPhone 11 Pro and he has a new Samsung 20e. All works fine now receiving all his text.
