    AT&T 8300 not receiving sms texts

    Advertisement



    Alright, so all of the sudden my Curve has stopped receiving texts. I still get all my emails fine and I can use the phone, but people have been calling me wondering why I havent responded to their texts and I haven't gotten any all day.

    I have asked a bunch of people to send tests messages and I didnt get any of them.

    Help?

    have you tried tried a hard reset? take off the back cover while the phone is still on and pull out the battery. leave it out for about 15 seconds and then put it back in.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~check options - security options - firewall. Maybe you have blocked incoming sms

    I called AT&T and after going through a bunch of crap the guy told me that it's because there's an outage in my area (NYC). It still doesn't make sense to me how I can get get the test message from them, and the Google SMS, but not texts from anyone on any other carrier but they can receive them from me...

    This requires going into Options>Advanced options>Service Books> and deleting your service books
    and then logging onto your BIS account and resending your service books.

    you don't need a bis acct to be able to send or receive txts.

    did you try the battery pull?

    well if the outage is really going on (which I've never heard of one and I think the rep is full of it), try putting your sim into another phone and see if you experience the same thing.

    Pressing alt+lglg and clearing the log worked with the pearl for lost messages. Has anyone tried clearing the log with the curve? I've pulled up the event log with my curve but I've not had any issues with missing messages yet.
