    Google voice sms down again?

    I'm not getting sms from other people, just tried texting my gv# from my 2 carrier sims (at&t and T-mobile) and nothing, short code for my PayPal balance works though, anybody else?

    I'm currently successfully sending/receiving texts with people on T-Mobile, Vzw, and a radio station contest short code. Last night I successfully received a text from my bank's automated system sent from a short code.

    Have you checked voice.google.com to see if the texts are there? Or hangouts.google.com if you're using Hangouts?

    I just tested both of mine.
    Texts are pictures are sending and receiving just as they should.

    I can send and receive sms text to my GV number. Are you not getting text delivered to your phone or are you not getting text delivered to voice.google.com ?

    I'm talking about texts from other people to my gv number, neither the gv app or hangouts are receiving them.

    We're waiting for the answer to that question, which I already asked above.

    Oh the web based Google voice, no nothing there either. So texts aren't being delivered to my Google voice on any platform. People sending texts from Verizon, TMobile, at&t to my gv number are mia. Short codes, at least PayPal is working though.

    But you mentioned Hangouts. Which one are you using?

    I was using Hangouts when I noticed it wasn't working, switched to GV to see if that worked. Same thing. This happened last month or so and the texts were permanently lost.

    Texting to/from gv/cricket works normally. Texts are not forwarded but rather coming/going to the actual cell # from gv using the website and/or gv android app.

    Other issues with gv/obi started yesterday. Several threads already on the obi forum. Seems some kind of dns changes but doesn't affect everyone, or even those using hangouts or a pbx.

    Well. It's working now, about 6 hours down and anything sent in those 6 hours never made it, I sometimes wonder if gv isn't down more than once a month. I've had people here and there asking me why I didn't respond to them, most are on iOS iMessage, they are used to the reliable delivery😁
