Trouble with receiving text from I Phones to my Samsung
I am new to Virgin Mobile and received my phone (Samsung Galaxy A41) and new mobile number very recently. (Apparently my number is a recycled number so someone in the world has had it before)
I sent out a text to all my contacts informing them of my new number.
I have had several text coming through ok from other Android users but if one of my contacts has an IPhone and messages me, I don't always get it, and they get a response from someone called Oakley. This only happens if they text, if they ring me it comes through to me on my number.
Someone has suggested that as my number is recycled, the previous owner of the number still has the number registered in the Cloud and any one using an IPhone the messages go as an iMessage.
I rang Virgin media about this and they suggested I ring Apple (Which was not very helpful)
