Same boat... We are sending messages to PHONENUMBER at vtext.com and getting
bouncebacks or lost items. I assume its because some limits are now being put
into place. We are a Verizon subscriber so I am paying, it is not a free
service. But .... I am totally up for paid services if you can recommend some
that will reliably get us texts to our verizon phones.
