    So i got this phone yesterday and could get and receive texts just fine on my old phone before i transferred over to the droid.

    now their is a small group of contacts who text me but i can't get their text messages. when just yesterday on my old phone i could get messages just fine. what is going on here?

    I have tried battery removal and rebooting. i also did the factory reset and still nothing. I already hate this phone and want my stupid old flip phone back.

    The phone is a Droid 3 by the way

    Hi Kaligh,

    Strange that a factory reset did not work. You're getting text messages fine for everyone else? Do these selected group of contacts get your text?

    I'm not sure if it's much help, but have you tried using a third party SMS app like handcent SMS? I'm not sure if it'll work but it's a try :)

    Give VZW tech support a call. Some provisioning on your account might be messed up. As in something that is required for smartphones didn't get added to your plan.
