How to get text messages from Sprint users

2011-10-22, 22:30 PM

I have a Motorola Electrify from US Cellular, and am able to get text messages from anyone that is not on the Sprint network. My sprint friends receive texts from me, but when they answer, I do not get them.

Is there a setting that I should check, or have them to check?

Thanks!

Are you using the Stock Dialer/Address Book or are you using Google Voice?

Google Voice has a Spam function, perhaps the text are in there.

There is an issue with signatures/callback numbers with Sprint

You have to tell the Sprint users that you text with to remove their signature and/or callback number.

This will solve the problem.

Awesome!  Thanks for the tip!

Can you tell us how you came to know this?  And is it a symptom of all Sprint to US Cellular texts???

Thanks!

OKay, thank you. The problem is that she tells me that she doesn't have a callback number associated, and when her texts came in previously on my old phone, they didn't have a signature. So unless I can ask to borrow her phone and nose around, it looks like I'm actually going to have to...call her.

This has been posted on a couple different forums as well as the Facebook US Cellular page.

The problem only seems to be with the Electrify.

Ooooh, that's weird that it only affects a single handset.

Thanks again for the info!

There are at least two models of LG phones that also have this behaviour, the Apex and Optimus specifically. It's not an uncommon issue with Androids...
