    Hello,

    It doesn't happen all the time, but there have been a few instaces where I send a text message to an iPhone user and they'll get a message that has weird characters and not the true message content.

    The messages look something like this: ???!!//??!!, and the stranger thing is that even if it's a short message, the iPhone recipient will get three of these messages in a row with these same weird characters.

    Has anyone else run into this issue? I am not sure if this is a problem with my phone, with the iphone or if it's an app causing this. [I am using the DroidX and I am on verizon].


    Thank you!

    Hmm, ok, so potentially an iPhone problem.

    Well, it only happens occasionally, but it's still kind of hard to explain to an iPhone user that it's their phone and not mine. Oh well.

    Thanks guys!
