    Default Cant recieve calls from verizon?!?!
    It started off that I couldnt recieve text or calls...then att changed my LRN (location routing number) and I was able to recieve text from verizon. But for some reason I can't receive calls still? I have talked to them for around 8 hours and they keep giving me the run around...(At&t: "its verizon, it not att"; Verizon: "its At&t, not verizon". what should I do? Has anyone else experienced this problem? It has been going on since I ported my number from verizon on friday!

    Thanks, but its not the towers...everyone can call me but my mom(verizon) and all of my other friends on verzion. I was thinking that the port on verizons side may have not went thru right. We also just had a recent area code change which seems to be affecting my phone. I call out as 575 but 505 should work as well and doesnt!

    If he could rewrite the software to physically change the radio hardware, I think hardware and software gurus alike, would hail him as a GOD. :lol:

    The issue is a translations error on Verizonís network their system is not routing calls to the correct lrn, what you need to do is contact the Verizon port dept and have them put in a case to have this issue corrected. The issue is not on the att network, the way I know is I work in escalations dept (offline) with att porting and we have to work with them to get issues like this corrected.

    Are they sending from the iPhone and not going to the Verizon phone or getting an error when you send from the iPhone?

    It appears that mine send fine, they just don't receive them. I don't get any errors.

    if it looks like the texts are sending correctly from the iPhone 1 thing that would need to be checked is if it is added correctly to the account but if you are sending fine to other carrier's and justVerizon customers are not able to get text then again it is going to be something the is on Verizon's network, that is only if again that you can send to other carriers and not just AT&T customers

    if that is the case what I would do is call my friends becase they might need to call Verizon and speak with there tech team to get resolved. it sounds like Verizon might have some issue on the back end

    Dude, I have another question. All calls from verizon work except when people go out of town...why is this? They get that same message: "Sorry, number has been disconnected..."?!? Whats going on, is the LRN different for other cell towers in other cities?
