Hello @Brandong8man thanks for reaching out about your text message issues. I did want to clarify your question. Are you not able to receive SMS text messages from android users but can text them, or are you able to receive SMS text messages, but you can't send them out? Also, when did this issue begin?

Try going to "Settings > Messages" and enable "Send as SMS." If it's already enabled, then tap "Send & Receive" from that same screen make sure "Start new conversation from" is set to your phone number rather than your Apple ID.
