    Default only getting messages frome iphone users....

    a friend of mine is only getting text messages from other iphone users and no messages from non iphone users. i ran down the settings in notifacations and messages. we are setup exactly the same. i get messages from non iphone users, though.

    any ideas?

    thanks in advance.

    Tell him to try a hard reset by holding down the home and power buttons for several seconds...my buddy had the same issue with his over the weekend, the reset fixed it.

    Another thing to check is he could only be getting "imessages" and not text messages at all. Tell him to make sure his text message plan didnt get removed from his account. I have at&t and it has happened to me on a new phone purchase once.

    Or if the steps above don't work re do the activation something that fixes issues
