Solve this SMS mystery: iPhone unable to send text messages to Helio


I've had a Helio Ocean for a couple of months, and when some of our crew started using iPhones, I noticed that I stopped receiving text messages from them. I figured they were just having too much fun on their iPhones to bother replying to my messages, that they'd formed their own little iPhone clique and I wasn't a part of it because I refused to get caught up in the hype. (See my Helio Ocean vs. iPhone post later this week.)

But then fingers started pointing at me: "Why don't you reply to my texts?" So we ran some highly technical tests (sending messages to each other across a table at a diner), and concluded that the iPhone refuses to play with the Helio. I can send text messages from my Helio to iPhones, but can't receive messages from iPhones to my Helio. Calls work fine.

Anyone else experiencing this weird glitch? Has anyone solved this mystery or had any conversations with AT&T, Apple or Helio about what's going on here?

I just tested with my Ocean and iPhone (yep, have both) and it works fine... Hmmm?
