That's a new "feature" of ICS. . Sorry, but I couldn't resist. I have no idea what the problem may be.

Do you get texts from non iphone senders?

Do the iphone texts have pics?

Yes, I am having the same problem. Switched from an iPhone to a Raxr Maxx. I kept my iPhone to use as an iPod. The first day after the switch I received a couple iMessages on my iPhone from other iPhone users. I turned iMessaging off and then unregistered my phone with Apple. Now, I don't get most texts from other iPhone users (not on the iPhone nor on the Droid). Every once in awhile I will receive one on the Droid, but 98% of them don't come through. I have asked my friends to make sure they send the message as a text and not a message and that doesn't make a difference. It is incredibly annoying and the main reason I am seriously considering returning this stupid phone and going back to the incredibly smooth iPhone.

It seems like the problem is with people who had an iPhone before, and not a Razr Maxx setting issue.

I've never had this problem and I've never had an iPhone.

Yeah, you can probably thank Apple for this odd glitch. As for how to fix it, I have no idea. Maybe change numbers

I had this same exact problem a while back after going from the iphone 4 to a droid bionic. It is most definitely Apple's problem. No matter what I did Apple could not realize that my email and phone number should not be associated with imessage any longer. The only resolution that worked for me was to email Apple support and request my Apple ID be permenently deleted. Once deleted I started receiving messages from other iphone users.

Your phone is trying to tell you something.

Never had an issue receiving from Iphones...other than... they seem to break up into multiple text messages. Sporadic. One minute I'll get one correctly, next, I'll get one broken into 3, and they aren't long.

It's a conspiracy from apple to either piss us off, or make us pay more to get their messages... :-)

Has to do with imessaging or some apple "cloud" feature. Either they enabled it, and switched phones and never unenabled it, or something similar to that. There was a lot of buzz about this several months ago.

edit: yup, it's only for IOS users, so if they try to send to a non-ios device, it's just not going to work: http://www.apple.com/ios/features.html#imessage
