    Hi all,

    I wonder if any of you have experienced this?

    My mother's old VZW Chocolate is having trouble texting my iphone.
    When she texts me, I receive it as a bunch of crazy symbols jumbled together. I can't figure out what the problem could be?

    Any ideas?

    Are you using a VZW iPhone? I didn't want to assume.

    Has your mom tried resetting her phone and seeing if that helps?

    I am using a VZW iPhone.
    I asked her to restart her phone, to no avail.

    Hers is literally the only phone that is doing that, which is an issue as I talk to her through texting quite a bit.

    I think the next time I make it home, I will take her to the VZW store and see if they can figure anything out.

    Best advice: I had a chocolate, toss it. Jk, that I weird.
