I’m experiencing this same problem. It happens with I receive text messages from an iPhone that contain apostrophes, emojis and/or possibly other characters. It definitely happens when text messages from iPhones contain text and only apstrophes (without any other special characters). Messages come through truncated and sometimes garbled.
I’m using a Samsung Intensity (SCH-U450 V) and I have this issue from every iPhone I’ve tested including: iPhone 5, iPhone 5s and iPhone 8.
This issue does NOT happen with any Android phones that I’ve tested.
Verizon support told me this was because this basic phone operates on the 1X network and the iPhones operate on 3G/4G networks. This can’t be the only reason though because I receive texts from Android phones just fine. And of course Verizon wants to sell me a new phone now.
