Question about RIM BlackBerry Curve 8520 Smartphone

Cannot receive SMS messages

As of November 8, I have not been receiving SMS messages on my blackberry curve. I can see the network traffic icon (the small arrow in the upper right of the display)when I try to receive a message from my wife's phone and it sends messages dine. This is my work phone and I am trying to avoid having to reset the phone. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for the help everyone. I read a few websites pertaining to the problem and the most common solution seemed to be going to the options menu and selecting firewall. From here there was nothing selected and the firewall was set to disabled. However after I removed the battery while the phone's power was on, the phone went into a reboot state. After the reboot the same "firewall" menu was enabled and the sms checkbox was checked.
    I simply unselected this setting and reverted back to "disabled". All is good now. Once again thank you to everyone who took the time to reply!!!

SOURCE: Can't get SMS messages for the passed few days.

Have you tried the SIM in another handset? Have you reset the handset to default (carrier) settings? If outbound SMS does not work even in another handset, it is more than likely an incorrect routing table entry on your providers end. I had a similar issue where I could not be contacted from one certain network after a number port to a different carrier. The old carrier missed the routing table entry and all my calls from the network were being directed to the wrong IP/Destination.

You can type any password 10 times at your phone, it can make your blackberry curve 8520 unlocked from old password. But you also lose all your previous data during that process it's kind like to force your blackberry unlocked without using any software. If your phone still can't receiving calls or message try to reflash your blackberry.

Check in the SMS and MMS icon for a new Text, or Voice Mail Message Indication. If you can not locate an unread message in the SMS or Voicemail, then try removing and reseating the battery to reset the device and resync with your Provider's Network.
