    My wife recently upgraded from an iPhone 4s to a Galaxy S4, and was having difficulty getting texts from her iPhone friends - I realize that this was a different problem, but maybe it has the same solution.

    Did your mom recently upgrade her OS on her iPhone? That upgrade automatically turns on a feature called iMessage. It is not supposed to affect texting to non-iPhone phones, but maybe something screwed up.

    I would suggest turning this feature off on the iPhone, and waiting a while to see if the problem get solved (some suggest that it can take 30 days! when my wife switched it off it took about 20 minutes to register)

    On the iPhone:
    Settings-->Messages, turn off iMessage

    Good luck, and I hope that solves the problem.
