Nexus 6 Android 7.0 dropping received text messages

magenta2169336

    I am using a Nexus 6 64 GB Android 7.0 and the Android Messages app for texting.  Lately, I have been dropping (not receiving) some text messages from various contacts.  Other users have said they sent me texts but they do not show up on my phone.  Two of these users are T-Mobile user using Android phones.  I did some searching here, and I found several other users with similar problems.  There was some suggestions of changing to APPN IPV4 settings, using a different texting app, and so on. 

     

    Is there some general consensus on how to make the received message texting more reliable? 

     

    Thanks in advance!
