I’m sorry to hear that other people’s text messages are not syncing to your AT&T Messages! It’s no good, if you’re only getting half of the intended use out of that service!
I would try clearing the application cache for your AT&T Messages on your phone!
Have a great weekend!

I have the exact same issue! I've posted on this forum as well and have tried all the recommendations given to me and none worked.
Also, I opened a ticket with AT&T Tech Support already and was told this is a trending issue now for a number of customers like us. I've been waiting for a couple weeks now and they still haven't given me a resolution to this issue.

My husband and I switched from Verizon to AT&T less than two weeks ago and are experiencing the exact same problem with text messaging on his tablet and my iPad. As big as AT&T is and for as long as they have been in business, WHY are they having this issue? We never had any problems when we used the Verizon app on his tablet and my iPad. We aren't going to take our phones back to AT&T for a partial refund after the restocking fee and return to Verizon as it really is too much of a hazzle but after our cell phones are paid off in two years, if the problem still remains we will be returning to Verizon. I do regret that I didn't picked phones that were unlocked so we could have taken them to Verizon.

I’m sorry to hear you are both having this issue. Having a service that is frustrating is not what we want anyone to experience.

Please review the email address I should send my information to as the one supplied to me in the below email is not a valid email address.

Once at the private message box, after entering my message when I hit SEND my message did not go. This is what I see: The private message you were trying to access does not exist.
Please click the Back button on your browser.
So how do I send my private message? This problem is getting more frustrating. 😡

I’m sorry to hear you are also having issues with the AT&T Messages service. I understand that getting a one sided conversation with this service can be an absolutely frustrating experience and I’m happy to help!
Are you using an iPhone? If so, while using the AT&T Messages service, you’ll need to turn off iMessage in order to receive all text messages on the Web.
On your iPhone, go to Settings, Messages, iMessage and select OFF. After logging out of AT&T Messages, you can turn iMessage back on.
Also please keep in mind, AT&T Messages is available to AT&T wireless customers on the Web from a computer or tablet using an HTML 5–compliant browser.
Please let me know if either of the above helped fix this and if you have any questions or concerns.
Thanks and have a great day!

@spoileddogs2 Did you try a refresh, on your browser?
I change between "Texts" and "All", for the messaging display, and this usually refreshes my messages, but sometimes I have to refresh the browser page completely, to get it to show both "sides" of my messaging.
I agree, it's not perfect, there are some bugs, but I'd say mine works 95%, which is usable.
*If this (or another post in this thread) fixes your problem/issue, please mark it as "accept-solution", and I'll tag it, to make it easier for others to find the answer(s). FYI: I'm an AT&T end-user, just like most of us in the forum. Thanks.

On my iPad I have the iPad messages turned off. I've tried using both Safari and Chrome and still this problem. Today on my iPad I saw three conversations I had with my daughter using the AT&T app that came with my Android phone. Two of those three conversations showed the entire conversations. Why not all three?
If AT&T can have a working app on my Android phone, why can't they have a working stand alone app on the iPad/iPhone like the one for my Android phone? AT&T has been around as long as Verizon has and they have identical stand alone apps on the Android phones and iPads.
