Issues with SMS between an iPhone and Android

I have an iPhone and I'm having a persistent issue sending direct SMS messages to Android devices. I've had multiple phones (and multiple SIM cards) and the issue still occurs. When I send an SMS message to an Android, it shows up as sent, but the receiver does not receive it. This happens when message(s) are sent to a singular Android device and a group of Android devices. I can receive messages from Android devices, but if I try to respond, the receivers report that they do not receive the reply. The only time an Android actually receives my message is if it's a group message to multiple people and there's an iPhone included in the group. I've spent countless hours on the phone with AT&T support and they have not had any solutions. Has anyone else had this issues? And/or does anyone have any innovative solutions?

No problems here sending messages to Android devices from any of our iPhones. The messages do take longer than iMessage to iMessage but they do go thru, and vice versa.
