    Default Iphone 11 not receiving SMS

    Hi all,
    My Wife has a Iphone 11 running 15.5os, she can send SMS to Android phones but never receives replies from Android phones. The only time it works is when the message contains a picture and txt (mms).

    Just wondering if anyone has had this problem and can point me in the right direction to fix the problem.

    Cheers
    Mick

    It doesn’t completely explain the problem, but check that this option is off:

    Settings > Messages > Filter unkown senders

    Just tried that, no difference.

    Her mum has an old flip phone and txt messages don't aren't received either. So it has to be a setting in the iPhone ?

    Have you checked message send/receive settings?

    Some iPhones are set to their Apple ID, rather than the phone number.

    Go into Settings > Messages > Send & Receive

    Check that your number is displayed. If not, you'll need to link it to your Apple ID.

    I took the phone into a telstra shop today, they couldn't help either. So as mtv suggested I'll ring Apple support and see what they can do.

    I'll keep you all posted re this.

    Thanks for the help anyway

    That's just Apple's way of telling you it's time to shell out a million dollars for a fresh bit of fruit. Sorry, I can offer no constructive help, It's just another nail in a well sealed coffin for apple products in my book.
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...
