    Title says it all:

    I'm on an iPhone 6S with T-Mobile, and my friend has an HTC Droid with AT&T (don't remember the exact phone he has).

    When I am in a group message with him I cannot receive any of his text messages (him being the only Droid in the group). But when I just text him, everything works great.

    Anyone have any ideas why I can't receive his texts in a group? I have SMS messaging enabled, because I text a lot of people who don't have iPhones.

    Do you also have group messaging and MMS messaging enabled?

    Maybe his phone isn't properly set up for group MMS messages. I have one sister with a 6+ on VZW and another sister with a Galaxy S6 on AT&T and group messaging works great!

    Have you tried force quitting all background apps (including messages) and restarting the phone? I have had this happen, but slightly different, usually I can't text at all, but I can send imessages. Force quitting and reboots typically fix it for me.

    I would recommend using WhatsApp. Group messaging is not good unless everyone has iMessage.

    I would have your friend check the settings on his phone. I'm in a group text with my fiancée and future in-law's. Two of her family members have Galaxy phone's while everyone else has iPhone's. I receive their group messages just fine (we are all on AT&T, but I don't think that should make a difference).

    I think this might be an issue on my end (maybe even a T-Mobile issue). When I send a text in the group, he can receive mine, I just can't receive his.

    No, I didn't!

    Anyone else have any ideas? Hate to bump this. But it's getting annoying.

    Could be a T-Mobile issue. I have AT&T and a friend of mine has T-Mobile and last I checked she had an LG G5 but it might be an S7 now. Anyway she will routinely ask me to resend her messages because they will show up as downloading on her end only they won't actually show. I don't have issues texting anyone else as far as I know. Maybe have them check their settings or if possible head down to a T-Mobile store if you can replicate it and see if you can troubleshoot with a rep?
