I can receive texts from a friend just fine but lately the ones I send are garbled even though they look ok when I view them in my google voice text history. I am sending the texts by responding to an SMS to email using the email to SMS feature.

To be clear, the characters are fine, but parts of the text are simply missing.

I have NO problem receiving texts. My friend has a problem reading the ones I send to him. Parts of the text are missing. The messages look fine in my text history. I am using the email to SMS feature to do the texting. I respond to the SMS to email from my friend by responding to the email. He gets a corrupted text. I am using yahoo email on my "My Yahoo" page and my friends provider is Verizon.

Can you and your friend try the following?

Reboot your phones.

Firefox is current, v13.0
I cleared cache and cookies
I installed Java (although I had already had it on my system)
I installed Flash (although it routinely gets updated)
I did not do windows update since I do that every time it offers an update - approximately monthly
My friends phone is a feature phone and cannot be rebooted
I am doing the texts to him using email to SMS feature on my home computer, responding in firefox and yahoo mail.
I have no trouble with texting him using my iPod touch and the Pinger TextFree app - that works fine
It used to be that google voice replying to SMS to email worked. It simply no longer does. The text is screwed up - much of it is missing.

The link you gave is for CHAT problem reporting, not really for texting problems on google voice. (There isn't even a Google Voice option on the pull down list but I submitted it anyway.) What is the link for reporting a texting issue like this one on Google Voice??

Its been two weeks and still no reply from the support request.

I decided to again try the email-to-SMS feature of google voice since it has been a while since I had the problems. I was pleased to find that it now is again working correctly. I sent identical email/SMS messages that previously had problems and now there is no problem.

you'll only hear from Google support if they need more information from you.
