I read iphone 6 and 6s have issues with texto. I reset network, shut the phone, deleted most of all my texto. I also realized that blue is imessage and green is regular texto. I also have this issue with Rogers SIM card - and I thought it was Roger's bad services. I have this issue with Koodo SIM card. It seems I have covered all the troubleshooting. I have no trouble sending/receiving texto to people who have a mobile - not iphone. So I've turned off the imessage in settings. This works, I can texto. However, I still can't receive texto. Because I have my Mac laptop linked to my iphone, I received notification on my Mac laptop that I have received a texto. But still, on my iphone, it does not show that I have a texto. The good news is that if I have wifi or if I have a data plan, and the "on" for imessage in settings, I can receive all messages, blue and green. But now I am off data, and not always on wifi. I have a wonderful economical basic plan with unlimited texto + $5 USA texto add-on. But I can't use texto. Unless I toggle "off"imessage to send, and back "on"imessage to receive. Anyone has ideas on this - iphone6 troubleshooting. While trouble shooting, I find I cannot get my iMesssge activated.

Can you delink your Mac and see if it still has the issue?
Super! I sent texto to my self and received it as well 1) as iMessage WITH WIFI 2) "off" the iMessage as regular texto 3) "on" the iMessage WITHOUT WIFI. All combo work. Thanks!
I haven't been able to retrieve on the phone, the texto prior forwarded to the laptop, but oh well. I know this forward function ought not be activated. Thanks!
