    So, I've got my phone. I'm in my home using wi-fi.
    I removed the SIM from my iPhone 4S and put it into my N5 during setup.

    I am texting a friend via SMS within Hangouts. She is texting me back - but they are coming in on the iPhone.

    Does anyone know why her texts are not coming into my N5? And how to make them do so?

    I deleted the Hangouts app from my iPhone and restarted it. My incoming texts from other iPhones are still going to my iPhone. It must be that AT&T has that phone registered on my account. :thinking:

    At a guess this is because of iMessage: https://discussions.apple.com/message/22436272#22436272
     
    Slug and CrystalSC like this.
