Open the messaging app on the phone. From the page that lists conversations, tap the menu button. (Generally in the bottom left corner of the phone, left of the silver rimmed home button). Tap on spam folder. Are the missing messages there? If so, then you accidentaly marked his messages as spam and just need to unmark them to start receiving them normally again.

Send a quick test message from yourself - to yourself. This will help you distinguish if the problem is on your end or his.

If you receive your own text, have him do the same.

If you both receive your own sms, then post the model, so we can attempt to see if its a built in setting.

If being sent though a contact saved in phone, verify its the correct format.

If its a galaxy s3 or s4. verify the following:

- open messaging app
- press settings button
- Check if spam settings happens to be checked

If your husband texts are on an iphone, may want to test if he is only sending texts through Imessage.

He somehow got marked as spam. It's all figured out.
