Android not receiving texts from iPhone? 10 easy fixes.

If you’re an Android user who’s not receiving texts from iPhone users, don’t worry – there are 10 easy fixes to this frustrating problem.

import android.telephony.SmsManager;

public class SMSHandler {

private SmsManager smsManager;

public SMSHandler() {
smsManager = SmsManager.getDefault();

public void sendSMS(String phoneNumber, String message) {
smsManager.sendTextMessage(phoneNumber, null, message, null, null);

The above code creates an instance of the `SmsManager` class, which is responsible for sending SMS messages. It then defines a `sendSMS` method that takes a phone number and a message as input and sends an SMS message to the specified phone number.

This code can be integrated into an Android application to allow users to send SMS messages from within the app. If the issue is related to not receiving SMS messages, further investigation and troubleshooting may be required, and additional code may be necessary to diagnose and solve the problem.

Check your phone’s network settings to ensure that your cellular data or Wi-Fi is turned on and working properly.
