Some of my friends say they aren't receiving my texts and those that make this claim all have one thing in common... they don't have smartphones. Some only receive garbled text, nonsensical partial sentences or letters that don't spell anything, I have noticed the ones who get these garbled texts all have cheap little flip-phones, or trac phones. Others will receive my texts but only every other one I send. I notice when I type more than a sentence or two, they almost never receive them. Friends will whip out their phones & show me what my texts look like & it's ridiculous! It looks like a 5 yr olds typing! no matter how short my sentences are, they arrive to the recipients phone in pieces, they are always split up & out of order, so if I send one text with two sentences, it will arrive in 3 different texts, with the middle if the sentence arriving 1st, the end of the sentence arriving 2nd & the beginning of the sentence arriving last. Some people receive the whole text msg, but every single word has a space between each character, l i k e t h i s. Some people recieve texts with "@" between each character instead of a space, l@i@k@e t@h@i@s . I called AT&T & they have no idea what it is but I seriously don't think it's my service, I think it's my phone. I have a non-rooted Samsung Galaxy S2 locked to AT&T. It is only 9 months old and never been dropped and doesn't have any water damage or anything. I downloaded some texting apps so that I could test it for myself by sending myself texts from my phone number and from the texting apps, & some of the apps received the texts with the spaces between each character & the "@" between each character, but not the garbled or chopped up texts that some people get. Also, If I am typing and I tap between a word or letter to add something, after i backspace, it will copy & paste what i've already written, so it posts or sends twice! its SO annoying! I never know who got my texts & who didn't & I'm always asking people what kind of phone they have so I know whether they will receive my texts or not. People with smartphones ALWAYS get my texts, some with non smartphones get them, but in the condition i stated above, some don't get them at all, and some receive some but also don't receive some. People with iphones always get my texts, intact & in their entirety, android users usually always get them, but sometimes not, but the occurrences are minimal. I've gotten to the pount where I just strictly use google voice to text, but if my phone runs out if data, i cant use it because it requires an internet connection. I just want to be able to text from my regular phone number like normal, not all crazy, nonsensical, chopped up texts or them not arriving at all! Does ANYBODY know what the heck is wrong with my phone??
