    My texts are sending really weird to certain Verizon iPhones. So far, 3 people have said they've received my texts looking odd. First it sends as iMessage but not delivered, then say sent as text message. Then it's received, but has 1-2 spaces between each character, and the end of the message ends .a

    Here is an example:

    "how are you?"

    Shows up as:

    "h o w a r e y o u ?.a"

    Any ideas? I've tried a network settings reset and hard reset.

    I get this sometimes too.
    First time it happened it was from my friend on an iPhone, but he wasn't using iMessage (he was using standard SMS instead).
    Second time was from someone using an Android phone.
    Several times more I received them from Android users.
    Never have I gotten it from anyone using iMessage, so it seems to me that it is some sort of formatting issue. That's all I can come up with! :D
