When i send a text, they only get symbols?

when i send my wife and sons text they only get symbols. they have verizon. but i would like to know why they only get symbols. i cant get customer service?

I'm a bit confused by your post.
When you delete a contact, I assume it is no longer listed in the Contacts app, right?
When a send a text, what exactly do you mean "they are still there"?  Can you then go back into contacts and find the contact listed again? 
Are you syncing contacts via icloud to several devices that you own?

  • When I send a text to someone, they receive it from my email address not my ph number, how can I stop this?

    I recently upgraded to iOS 6 and am being told by my contacts that when I send a text they receive it from my email address (in their messaging app) and not from my phone number.
    I have checked the send/receive settings in Settings>Messages>Send & Receive, the phone is set to send/receive default from my phone, yet the email sends it first.
    I have removed and re added the email address, but have had no luck resolving the problem.
    Has anyone else had the same problem? Is there a way I can stop it without turning off iMessage?
    Thanks in advance.

    There is another setting for "Start Conversation from", that needs to be set to phone number.

    Both of you need to have iMessage activated, and both have to have active Internet connection for iMessage. Are you both using the same Apple ID? Are you using the phone number or Apple ID for messages?

    Go to Settings -> Messages -> Send & Receive on each device and deactivate the addresses you do not want to receive messages directed to on that device.

  • Downloaded IOS7 on iPhone 4, have sprint as carrier, now when another Sprint phone sends a text to my sons iPhone, Im getting a copy of the texts being sent to him.  Plus when I send a text, it shows as coming from my sons.  What's up, how can I fix this?

    I have downloaded ios7 on iphone 4s, Sprint is my carrier.  When I send a text to anohter iphone ALSO using sprint, it shows as coming from my sons phone.  When he gets a message from another iphone using sprint, I get copies of his messages.  Go figure.  It seems to be only other IPhones and Sprint users.  Hasnt' happend with android phones texting him, or him texting to androids or carriers that are not sprint.

    The fact that the problem only occurs when iphones are texting you leads me to think that iMessage may be the culprit. The fact that it is only iphones using SPRINT however is weird. Try turning imessage off on both yours and your sons phones to see if the problem persists. If it does, it may be a carrier problem.

    Hello Todd:
    I had this very same problem when trying to activate iMessage and Facetime on my iPad. When I signed into my account, I actually wasn't even presented with the option of a phone number - notwithstanding the fact that I was contacting others (and being reached by others) by my phone number on my iPhone. Having both the iPad and the iPhone on, I kept trying to turn off and on both iMessage and Facebook in Settings on both my iPad and iPhone, hoping that that they would eventually sync. But this proposed solution by others was unsuccessful for me.
    Then, I found out what the problem was: When my iPhone was activated, it automatically registered my phone number for contact purposes. I was using iMessage on my iPhone for quite some time without actually being signed into my Apple ID account. When another device - such as an iPad or iPod - is being used for iMessage or Facebook, you are prompted to sign into your Apple account, using your username and password. These two devices will not register your phone number as an option for contact unless your iPhone is signed into your Apple account as well. In other words: your phone number will not be synced.
    Go into your "Settings" on your iPhone and click on "Messages". Scroll down and click on "Send & Receive" (which should be followed by your phone number). On the next page, you will be able to determine whether or not your iPhone is using the Apple ID for messaging purposes. (Note: This information applies for Facetime as well.) If it is using your Apple ID for messaging, than at the top, you will see "Apple ID: <your particular e-mail account>" in Blue text. However, if you are not using your Apple ID for messaging, than you will see the words: "Use your Apple ID for message". Even though below this you will see your phone number checked as the contact source, you will want to click the tab that says, "Use your Apple ID for message". Sign into your account (just as you must sign in for iMessage on your other devices), and just choose your phone number as the "Send & Receive" contact. (The option of the e-mail will be there too, but you don't have to check it. And later on, you can delete it as an option.)
    Now that all of your devices are signed in using your Apple ID, the other devices should register your phone number as a choice. It may take a little while, however. What I did was sign out of iMessage on my iPad, and then sign in again. If the option didn't appear, I just went back and signed in again, and kept doing this until the option for the phone number appeared.
    Again, this will work for Facetime as well. The solution is to sync your iPhone account with the other devices by using your Apple ID for messaging (and Facetime) purposes.
    I hope that this works for you, Todd!   ~ Brian

  • Updated to IOS6 now I when I send a text I get a copy sent back to me?

    updated to IOS6 now I when I send a text I get a copy sent back to me?

    I had the same problem and here is how you fix it. Go to settings/messages/send &amp; Receive and remove the check mark from your other cell number. You only want your phone number to have the check mark along with the email addresses. Hope that helps.

  • When I send a text message I do not get any confirmathat it has been delivered.  Is there a way of getting an automated confiramtion of deleivery as I'm used to having this on a previous phone, and need to know that my texts have been delivered.

    When I send a text message I do not get any confirmation that it has been delivered.  Is there any way of getting an automated message confirmation delivery and time?  I was used to this with my old phone and need to know that my text message has been delivered to the recipient's phone, and when.

    Thanks.  So there's no means of knowing whether a text message has been delivered, not to mention time of delivery.  Perhaps I've gone for the wrong phone.  It might do a lot but seems to miss out on some basics.

  • When I send a text message to my husbands iPhone he does not get it

    When I send a text to my husbands iPhone he does not get it.  It worked before the new update.

    Either one of you needs to uncheck the other's phone number under settings&lt;messages&lt;send &amp; receive or one of you needs to sign out of the apple ID in iMessage settings altogether by pressing the apple id on the page and choosing 'sign out'
