    He has a Samsung phone and can send me txt messages. Great!
    But when I reply it does not get delivered. Ugh!

    We have both spent hours talking with our phone companies and Apple support and done everything they have suggested.

    But no result.

    Recently he has bought a new iPhone and things now work properly. Yay!

    But the question still lingers - Why did it not work in the first place?

    It was probably being sent as an iMessage and not a text message to him. Now that he is back to an iPhone it is receiving the iMessage.

    Still odd though. I send messages to people without iPhones all of the time and it's seamless. iMessage always assumes that the other user doesn't have iMessage unless it receives notification that he or she does. Even then, I've had people switch from iPhone to Android and iMessage switched back to SMS without issue.
    Just blame it on computers being qwerky, imperfect machines that sometimes do funny things
