Pixel 5A Verizon cannot receive (some)texts

I received a Pixel 5A yesterday for my wife. I had hell getting it to be able to send text messages.
I was on the phone with Verizon tech support for over 90 minutes. The only thing Verizon could do that helped is set the phone to CDMA less.
The other thing I had to do was get into her Google account and manually verify phone.

After Verizon set the phone to CDMA less, I could receive texts from non Android phones or Android phones that were not running chat features.
