Texts going to Laptop (MacBook)

I have a Samsung 21, and three of my four of my friends, who all have iPhones, text me and their texts show up ONLY on my laptop -- which I'm not checking constantly.  Is this a "me" problem or a "them" problem?

Hi kagey62! We are here to help you receive text messages on your Samsung Galaxy S21 from Apple users!


We recommend checking your message settings by navigating to Messages app>More options>Settings. Also, turn off your Advanced Messaging by navigating to Messages>Menu>Settings>Advanced messaging>Off as this is known to interfere with other message services. 


Check out our helpful troubleshoot & resolve tool to help fix your message service concern. You'll need to navigate to Fix my wireless>Sign in to start. We also suggest reaching out to the iPhone users to ensure that their SMS is enabled in message settings, this will allow them to send text messages to your android device.


Let us know if this worked for you! Thank you for reaching out to the AT&T Community Forums!
