    My phone was shut off for a couple days and since then I cant send or receive a text from my dad. Each device says the text was sent properly. Both devices are current generation android( thunderbolt and galaxy s2). Any idea?

    Sounds like you have him blocked and he has you blocked or blacklisted. Check the settings in Privacy and Security, and see if you have each other black listed. I doubt it, but worth a look.

    I read on one of the forums that this happens when you have each other's phone numbers listed the land line way, that is with a leading 1 xxx xxx xxxx. Take the one out and you should be able to send and receive texts to each others phones.

    Yeah, the number formatting is important with some carriers. Just toss them in with no spaces or dashes, and no "1" for the long distance/outside area code thing most land line accounts need.
