Not receiving group text messages


Not receiving group text messages

I have repeatedly had trouble receiving text messages on my phone. It seems to happen with group texts when there are both iphone and Android devices in the group. I will get messages for days and then they will stop suddenly.  I have missed very important work-related messages and would love to fix this quickly. 


Thank you,

Re: Not receiving group text messages

I had this same problem for the past year or so. Got a new phone yesterday, and the problem still persist. So I now know it is the service with at&t. No one in technical support, although they are nice, can resolve the issue. All they do is refresh my network. I don’t live in a remote area were there is no service so this should not be happening. It has become very frustrating and at times embarrassing and I have missed some important messages because of this issue. I have been with at&t for over 15 years and pay almost $200 a month for wireless service that occasionally works. It seems like at&t has a big network issue and there network is jammed. Unfortunately they will be losing a customer very soon. Currently shopping around....
