    My husband recently upgraded his phone and is using ios 9.2.1, I still have my old phone with ios 6.0.1.

    I can iMessage him with no problem, and he can iMessage other users with no problem, but he can not iMessage me.

    Is this a ios compatibility issue, or something else? Any suggestions for how to fix?

    I may be wrong but I believe something was up with iOS 6 a while back.

    It was FaceTime that stopped working for anything below 7.0.4, iMessage should still work perfectly.

    You can try to set the send from and receive from in settings to the phone number only. I suspect it has your number and iCloud email address in there. Especially if you are sharing iCloud it could cause some issues.
    settings>messages>send & receive.
