I just switched to Public Mobile the other day. I've noticed that I am unable to receive texts from iPhones. I have a Samsung Galaxy S9. I've had it since August and everything worked fine on my previous provider. I can get texts from other Androids, I can send and receive calls from iPhones, and I can send texts to iPhones, data works fine too...I just can't receive texts from iPhones. I could get texts fine before I switched to PM (same phone). My phone number ported through completely (this was verified by a moderator). This isn't an iMessage issue, I was getting texts fine before I switched to PM and the texts that are being sent are regular texts and not iMessages. I don't know what it could be.
My coworker has the same issue but he's on Koodo with iPhone and I can't get his texts. We tried everything on iPhone to troubleshoot this, but we were unsuccessful. You should reach out to the Moderator_Team and see if that is something they can solve.
I am not a mod. Do not send me private message with your personal info.
If you need to contact PM Customer Support Agent, create a Ticket.

@benmcinnes4 Have your friends confirm the their messages to you are green and not blue. Their iPhones are not switching to SMS when texting you. The quickest fix is for them to press and hold a blue message and resend as SMS. From that point forward their phone should remember.
