First off, let me make this clear. I DO NOT own an Iphone. I have NEVER owned an Iphone. I own a macbook pro from 2008 and Ipod touch first generation that I stopped using a long time ago. Both have my AppleID, which is my email. However, the phone number listed is my house number and not my CELL number. Second, some of my co-workers and friends who have not updated to IOS7 for one reason or another can send me text messages perfectly fine. Anyone who has updated to IOS7 will have their messages sent to me as Imessage, which I obviously do not get. Some random guy even responded to my sister who said he was from Bangladesh. Why are they being redirected there? I've called Apple about this. They said to wait for an update, which would fix all these bugs. This problem is still going on after the most recent update. Working as a consultant, you have no idea how frustrating this has been when it comes to communicating via texts. Especially when someone who doesn't know me personally or does not know about my issue tries to send me a text, only to call later and say "Why don't you ever respond? I wanted to talk to you about something important". I've concluded this is obviously an IOS7 bug. I do not plan to change my number, given that will be just more of a headache, and I shouldn't have to change my number due to Apple's short comings. I've tried googling this issue to no avail. If anyone has a solution to this, I would greatly appreciate it.
