Help I cannot receive text messages.

Well, I've had the LG Optimus Elite for about a week or so. I adored this phone, it was absolutely perfect. Then earlier today it just stopped receiving text messages. If I send them, the other person gets them, but I just can't receive them. I tried resetting the whole phone (didn't work) and popping out the battery (didn't work either). What's the problem and how do I fix it?

Your phone might not have the correct ROM (Read Only Memory) like wrong APN files based on a ROM from another carrier. Or did you root your phone?

The text messaging functionality is pretty standard with Android phones. So normally it will work fine. You might want to give your carrier a call to see if they have received the same type of complaints from other customers thus have a solution ready for you.

Hope this helps.
