    As of this afternoon, I am not getting SMS (can't be iMessage since I am on WP) messages from my friends that are on iOS. I was getting them before this afternoon. Another friend has BB and I am getting their messages.

    The only thing that changed was some updates form HERE apps on the 920.

    WTF?

    I am not sure where to go with this and I have not found any other posts on it.

    Ideas?

    Most probably a carrier problem. SMS problems are related to carriers most of the times. Maybe they are not sending SMS but MMS and you somehow have not set up mms settings

    Straight text, no multimedia contained within. So, doubt there is something with MMS....

    Well, figured it out but I am not sure this is the most elegant solution. I have iMessage on my ipad and iMac turned on. When certain people using iOS would text me, they were sending it in "iMessage mode". I turned off iMessage on both devices and now I am getting texts again. I am sure the iOS users should be able to choose how they send me texts, but this works for now.
