Customer Question
Hi Pearl/Eric! Most...

Hi Pearl/Eric! Most of my texts are sent to one person. About 30% of the time either I don't receive her texts or she doesn't receive mine. Instead of replying to her texts I've been creating a new message, thinking this would help. This past week she did not receive 2 texts from thurs, One from friday and one from saturday. What could be causing this?

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model of your phone?

Don't have it with me. It's an LG flip phone

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your LG phone? What have you tried so far?

It's been going on since Dec 2017. I thought that if I created a new message in answer to a text instead of using reply key , the text would always go through (problem started with some "replies" not going through. Alas, sometimes new messages don't go through. Also, sometimes I don't receive her texts at all.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Phone Expert to know before I connect you?

Can't think of anything else. Thanks!
