My brother has had a problem sorta like that ever since he upgraded his phone awhile back. With his old Motorola Razr, he could send a text to my computer email address with no problem (and my email would go back to his phone as well). He got a different phone a few months back, a Motorola......Cadbury?.....I think.....anyway, whatever the model, this new phone won't send to my email for nothing. I can email his new phone just like I always could, but he can't send me anything. The company said it was a problem with Google (my Gmail account), so I told him to try sending it to my Yahoo account. No go there either, so they lied. They said they were having to upgrade their servers because of a lack of bandwidth capability, so whether that is playing a part in this or not, I don't know. Maybe they turned off any texts that don't go to another phone or something. Who knows? It's worked one time, about 3 weeks ago, but can't make it do it again.
Excellent guess, Kreskin! Wrong...but excellent.
