I cannot receive back replies from Verizon customers to texts sent to their number. I can send to them, but get back no reply. When I use the firstname.lastname@example.org
format I then get replies to my texts. But when using that format I cannot send pictures, and also am limited to sending a small number of characters. This problem appears to be only sending to Verizon customers. I think problem is with my phone (possibly the VPN settings that I can't change?) as my daughter has the exact same phone, and is on Straight Talk, but does not have this problem.
