Text messaging issue


Text messaging issue

My husband has been having this same issue. He's on a new windows phone because the reps at the ATT store told him it was a hardware issue. It's not. He has switched out SIM cards, done factory resets on both his old phone and new phone. This is happening with individual messages but I wouldn't be surprised if it happened during group texts as well. I am super p.issed we spent extra money on a new phone when it wasn't the phone. I want this issue fixed.
