Hi there, does anyone know why specific phones don't seem to receive txts from other specific phones?  I've come across it with a couple of phones lately.  My mother doesn't get txts from me, but if I take her sim out of her huckery burner phone and put it in my spare Sony Ericsson txts work perfectly.  Swap it back and txts are once again one way.

Likewise my son doesn't get txts from him mother (Iphone 5 to Samsung Galaxy Young).

I've tried to sell this as feature, but apparently mothers want to have conversations.

I would say she has blacklisted your number by accident on the handset (message screening) I am not talking about Vodafone blacklist when it's done on the network side

For the iPhone make sure the SMS is not going via imessage

Good points.  I don't think my mother's phone is complex enough to have a black list, she can certainly txt me.  Next time we're in the same location I'll have a look.  I'm tempted just to buy her a newer phone.

I'll investigate the iMessage angle.  My (second) work iPhone 5 just died, so that's not something I'm going to be able to step through over the phone either :-(

Some of the very old basic handsets have message screening
