It's an issue with the SIM card. I was on the phone with customer support for half an hour and then I just decided to take it in. They switched out my sim card and all was well. They didn't have any real reason as to why it needed to be replaced but as soon as it was I got all my text messages I didn't get earlier.

Phone Cannot Send or Receive Calls and Text Messages: A Simple Electronic Glitch


It is frustrating when only your phone cannot send text messages no matter how strong the network signal is. Sometimes you feel nobody cares about or remembers you because nobody calls or texts you but actually there are. Your phone just can't be reached or can't receive text messages. When these happen, turn off the phone; remove the battery and then the SIM card. Insert the SIM card to another phone and try sending text messages; if you still cannot send text messages, remove the SIM card and let it sit off the phone for at least fifteen minutes then insert it gain. You should be able to send text messages after that, but make sure you have credits.

The next thing you should look into is the phone. Make sure network signal is present then insert a known good SIM card in your phone and try sending text messages. Reset the phone if you still cannot send text messages, but back up important files and data, such as contacts, videos, images, and messages, before doing so.

One simple way to "reset" the phone is by removing the battery and letting it sit for at least fifteen minutes. Another way is by restoring the phone settings to factory settings. Simply navigate to settings then phone settings and select "restore to full factory settings" depending on the brand and model of the phone.

This tip is not intended to solve virus or firmware problems but rather to avoid unnecessary visit to the service center and save few bucks from a problem only caused by a simple electronic glitch. Check the network signal strength and your credits before jumping into any conclusion.

I have a motorola at&t mb865 4.0.4 everything works but my receive texts stopped i can send but cannot receive


Hi
This can be caused by a lot of different reasons
Have you tried turning off your device for 5 minutes with simcard out and then placing the sim card back in and retrying to send and receive a text message?
Devices with sim cards can start having this issue for several different reasons
1. Just needs to be refreshed in the manner that I described above
2. Contacting your provider and having them go into your device and refreshing your network and settings.. They might also refresh your text messaging feature in your device and sometimes when they do this you might lose all or some of your texts but the issue is normally resolved.
3. When you have a device with a sims card the sims card is what really makes your device do all that it does.. So that being said your sims card also might need to be replaced.
I would recommend going to your carrier provider via store or telephone so that they can test your device..
Hope this helps a little

The phone stops receiving text messages after its been on for several hours, i can send text messages all day long and they are received by the people i send then to. i can't get any messages back...


hey steven sc480 i experienced the same problem on the samsung a877 where the phone wont send anything. i finally learned after a while that the only solution to the problem is to restart it. its very annoying but u just have to accept it or upgrade to a new phone. the model i had which was the impression was notorious for its pink screen of death where the phone sends so many messages it just decides to turn the screen pink. but anyway i think that may be a relation in some of their phones. i know its annoying but i just got used to it. sorry

I just bought a sidekick 3 from ebay. when first turning my sidekick on there is a message saying the sim card is waiting for activation or something or another. i receive and send text with no problems...


To be able to send pictures and what not with the sidekick 3 you need to have the sidekick data plan. That is part of the error message you are getting when first turning it on.Without it, all you can do is text and phone

Sidekick 3 Dont Connect (No Internet neither send messages)


So an unlocked Sidekick on ATT will only be able to do text and phone. The other sidekick features require the t-mobiles sidekick data plan. It is hard coded to the phone

I need T-mobile sidekick ...& i am from India...


does your country have a tmobile network or tmobile store around there? if no, then it wont do any good for you to use it if there dont have any tmobile network to work with.
sorry to tell you that.
:[
but, you can try to get a unlocked sidekick and use a(whichever carriers you have in india) sim card and insert in a sidekick. but, you will only be able to use a sidekick are make a phone calls and send & receive a text and thats it. nothing else. 
hope that answered your question.

Unlocked Sidekick 3 not receiving text messages but CAN send them


Because the one you must of brought probaly had like a lock on it or probaly the person you got it from stole it right and now the person who orignally had it has shut the phone off but not completely so thats why maybe you should get your money back and get one from the T-Mobile store like me
mine works great =D i love my 3 and also i recently Brought A 2008 so maybe you try that one it has better features any way
