Anyone else use Google Voice? Missing the @ symbol


Recommended Posts

I am using an s3 and when someone sends me an @ symbol including an email address the symbol is missing in text messages. It shows in the GV app but never in the actual text message. My wife has an old Palm Pixi with GV and its worse. She doesn't get the @ or anything after the @ symbol as well. Not sure when this started but just noticed it today. I checked old text messages and I noticed I got an @ symbol in DEC 21st 2012, so this is a fairly recent development, I think.


Can anyone test this out for me? This happens whether or not the other party is using GV or not. I've only tested Sprint to Sprint. So any other tests would be appreciated.

I see the same behavior sending sprint to sprint on an EVO 4g LTE.


Just the @ symbol missing or everything after the @ symbol too?


I just tested MetroPCS to Sprint and @ symbol missing again. Sigh.


@ symbol missing for me isnt such a big deal, but everything after @ for my wife is a big deal.


edit: noticed this also affects outgoing texts. hmmm

    • Yet another "Carrier" move: T-Mobile users have only now discovered sneaky change made in May
    • Went to Hurricane Harbor again this past weekend, this time testing Verizon and T-Mobile. In my testing, Verizon is now the fastest carrier, at least on the Hurricane Harbor sector. Despite it being pretty overcast on Saturday with temperatures in the mid-80's the park was at full capacity.  Verizon had 160MHz of n77 and T-Mobile now has 160MHz of n41. On LTE I was seeing speeds in the range of 50-100Mbps while T-Mobile's LTE on was completely swamped, barely crossing 3Mbps. While both carriers only have a single high capacity sector (facing Great Adventure, Verizon benefits from having CBRS deployed on all sectors. This is an extra 60-100MHz of capacity that T-Mobile doesn't have. Maybe when T-Mobile gets around to deploying their C-band we'll see a boost in speeds again to be more competitive with Verizon. On the 5G side of things, T-Mobile's speeds were just over half that of Verizon.  That said, neither carrier was slow and I had zero issue using Xbox Cloud Gaming on T-Mobile despite their weaker upload speeds and higher ping.  
    • I think the newer ones have signal bars on them. I took a photo of one in Red Hook a month or two ago that had the same design.
    • Well well, looks like we found one of the two Link5G towers that might actually have 5G. Notice anything different? This one has the same signal bars icon that the pole mounted 5G oDAS units have. It’s in Chinatown at East Broadway and Forsyth St. It’s impossible to tell what carrier it is, though.
