It is likely that the phone has 'dropped off the network' or your message centre number has been accidentally changed.
The phone periodically sends a signal to the network to keep the network updated with its location. That way, when a call or text is made to your phone, the network knows which CELL to send the signal to (the last CELL place the phone was found in). If the network has not received a signal from the phone saying it is being turned off or has not managed to keep the network updated, the network will not deliver a text although this should not affect sending texts (in theory).
To get it working again, there are a few things to try:
1. Remove the battery without turning the phone off, remove the SIM and power up the phone. When the phone has started, turn it off, re-insert the SIM and start the phone.
2. Go into Network Settings and manually try to connect to another network and when it fails, set it back to automatic.
3. Temporarily put your SIM into another phone for a minute (you could get lots of texts coming in so read them before you put the SIM back into your phone.
You can try using email to text. However, iTunes is usually not compatible with anything non-apple and it is likely they have made it so the ringtone will only work on an iPhone. In case it may work, here's how to send it to your phone:
1. Open Gmail or another email service
2. Compose a message and for the to address, put (Phone number all ten didgets)@vtext.com for Verizon phone or (Phone number all ten didgets)@txt.att.net for AT&T phone.
3. Click "attach file" and select the ringtone. (not in iTunes) you will have to find it in another folder such as "Music" on your PC
4. Once the file has been uploaded, click send
5. You should receive it as a text
6. If it doesn't work, then iTunes has not allowed you to use it outside of iTunes.
Switch the phone off and remove the battery. Leave the battery out for about 5 minutes then replace and switch the phone back on. leave the phone switched on for about another five minutes before attempting to text again. This cured the same problem on the same phone for me.
You've left a wire off sumwhere or there is an earth fault. However it may be prucent to turn the engine over by hand as it's recommended that after the head comes off the bottom end gets rebuilt as well coz when the belt snaps it can lock the crack up and put a piton thru the block . Don't wanna be the bearer of bad news but i've seen it happen it ain't pretty.
