  1. I thought this was the issue I had but its not. I cannot receive a certain contact in my phone text messages. I can text them and they get it. I just dont he theirs. Also when that contact calls the screen looks like an alarm...where you can select snooze or dismiss. ....very confused. Please help!!

    1. Hi Erika Watson,
      Thanks for coming and I'm so sorry for late answer.
      Try to disable Spam settings option in the Messaging app settings and then see whether you'll be able to receive the message from that contact. Anyway, did you install any app to block call or text on your phone? If so, try to uninstall that app.
      FYI, I've never seen the snooze or dismiss in incoming call. However, did it happen on certain contact or all your contacts?
