Default Not receiving text messages

Just got my Droid Incredible 2 a month ago. 2 days ago it stopped receiving text messages. I know people were texting me.

The only way I received messages was by texting my own number, which let all the other messages through.

Anyone have this same problem?
Anyone know how to fix this?

I've not had that happen, but have you tried clearing the cache on messaging app?

I know the wife has this phone and if she send texts using wifi it doesn't go through. It seems to only go through using 3G. We use wifi while at home.

Just a thought!

Texts use the 1X network.

Same thing's happening to my girlfriends Galaxy SII. I don't know what the problem is. But this gives me a lead.

https://community.verizonwireless.com/thread/115632

Basically it has something to do with EMS'. Where the E stands for Enhanced. So something with enhanced text messages. But the guy in the link explains it better. Don't know a fix for it. But better than nothing.

I have a similar issue. I don't receive SMSs and even calls in the morning. Only when I send my first SMS or make a call, I receive all the held us SMSs which were sent to me. I think when I send a SMS, the network gets initialised somehow.
I had once installed Easy Battery Saver, which tinkered with my network and which I think might have caused this problem. I had also forgotten to restore the network settings before uninstalling the application. Later I reinstalled, reset the network settings and uninstalled, but the problem still remains.
So I have again installed the application and I am trying out its various settings hoping to solve the problem.

Model No. : Karbonn A9
Android Version : 2.3.6

One way I can solve this problem is by keeping my data connection on for the whole night so that the data connection initialises my network in the morning.

You might have better luck posting in a forum specific to your phone instead of the Incredible 2 forum

I have this problem, just with the not receiving texts, all the time with my Dinc2, probably on average once a week or so. I have to reboot my phone and then I start receiving texts again although it doesn't forward me the ones I know I missed. I don't know if this is a problem with HTC or Verizon or what but it also used to happen all the time on my HTC Eris and my daughter used to have the HTC Thunderbolt and had the same problem. I know of no way to fix it except to reboot regularly which of course I am too lazy to do. It is a pain though because you have no way of knowing you are missing texts until someone calls you up and says...."for God's sake why aren't you responding to my texts?!!!??"

This is the EXACT problem I appear to be having. Just called VZW and they are creating a ticket. They say they will call back in 3 to 5 days with an answer.

I am still having this problem with missing text messages. It seems to happen directly or soon after receiving an mms. I am on Verizon but I assume your solution, electrofryed, would work as well for me. If only I had another phone I could put my sim card into

Similar problem on Huawei AscendY for straighttalk. Rooted, recently working again after launcher accidentally deleted. Can send, but not receive, SMS. Stock messaging app missing (don't recall deleting it), can send texts through Chomp

Often people seem to have luck using GoSMS Pro (free).

You could always try dialing *28891 to update your prl

For those, who are looking for solution of problem not receiving SMS, in my case problem was in disabled Autostarts of SMS program. When I'he re-enabled them back using Autostarts app, SMS's started to come again.

I am having a texting problem as well. I recently got the Samsung Galaxy S3. I don't get every text from everyone. I have been to the Verizon store several times to figure this out and close to going back to the iPhone. I never had this problem on iPhone. The guy at Verizon said that some of my contacts still think I'm on iPhone and they need to change something in their settings regarding SMS/MMS. If this is true, this is a major flaw and why would anyone switch from iPhone to Samsung in the first place. I would think Samsung would anticipate issues like this and there would be some software in the background that would make issues like this never happen. Here's the weird thing, it doesn't happen all the time and I'v e tried to troubleshoot the problem and narrow it down, but its making my brain hurt. Has anyone encountered this? Does anyone know a fix? Telling all my contacts to change something in their phone seems like too much of a hassle, this can't be the easiest fix.
