I have an iphone 5 and for some reason, when I give my number to new people, I don't receive messages from them so I can't add them in my contacts or answer them. At first I thought it was a problem with imessage since the other person has an iphone too but they tried sending it as a text and I still didn't receive the message. I gave my number to another person who has an android and again, I'm not receiving his messages either. However, I am able to receive text messages from people already in my contacts. I also know the number I gave them is correct. What do I do to fix this?

Thanks for the help.
