Angry Can't receive MMS

All the sudden today I can't receive mms messages. I can still send them fine but cannot receive. It worked fine yesterday and I haven't changed anything since. I have AT&T and have unlimited data. Mobile Data IS checked marked in my settings. And im am bone stock, not rooted or anything running 4.1.2. Even if I send a pic to myself it'll show as sent but I get nothing. But regular SMS works just fine. I've restarted the phone and pulled the battery and still nothing.

Any Ideas?

Had the same problem with stock messaging and GO SMS. No one had a solution. I switched to Handscent SMS and the problem went away.

Thanks for the response. I as well couldn't get it to work with GO SMS.

Yeah that's a last resort thing to do a Factory Reset. Don't want to loss anything. I can send MMS's no problem but even if I send them to myself I don't get them. And this just started being any issue within the last day or so.

This is really irritating me. If I do a back up with a factory reset will all my contacts and apps come back after doing the reset?

Well thank you all for the helpful info, but it suddenly started working again. I backed everything up and was about to do a factory reset, but figured I'd try one last time and it worked.
