If someone creates a group message inside the Verizon Message+ application, I do not receive them. The only way I knew these group texts existed is because the person who created the group asked if I was getting them and I received a strange message one time.
I DID receive a message from a strange Denver number with the following message one time and this is how I figured out what was happening:
From: (588) area code
SENDERPHONE#: Messages are waiting for you. Download Message+ to read these messages at https://www.vzmessages.com/getclient.
I then opened the Message+ application and saw the group text and all the messages that were sent. I never received these with the default Android app or Textra (my preferred texting app).
I do receive individual texts, and group texts from other people, but it appears that if the text is sent from the Group Message inside the Message + app, I never get it. This happened again, with a family member who created a group text using Message+. I never got it nor did the above message come through like it did once before. I only knew the group text existed when my sister asked if I got it. When I opened Message+, there it was!
Is anyone else having this problem? I have the latest version of the app: 6.4.42
Thanks for the help!
