    Hi, Happy New Year.

    As a mistake, I put my girlfriend's number into the built-in blacklist.
    I went into settings > call > call rejection > black list, I removed her number and now she can call me.

    But the SMS are already blacklisted!

    If I open the built-in app "Messages" I find a red flag with the number of "blacklisted" sms. Other sms apps, like GOSms or Pansi couldn't read them.
    As I found around internet, I tried to put the SIM card into another phone: the incoming messages are delivered without problems, so it's a Galaxy S2 problem.
    I couldn't find a way to manage the built-in sms blacklist :-(

    Before I restore my smartphone from scratch...
    Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

    There is no built in SMS blacklist. Red flags are usually for messages that didn't send.

    There IS a built in blacklist function in GoSMS however. Maybe you have it blacklisted there?

    Thanks for you reply.
    I tried to send a new sms from my girlfriend's number, in my S2 I can see it into Messages, with a red flag now displaying 12...
    So the messages reached my S2, but they are blocked somewhere.
    I can't open the thread, so I can't read the previous messages.

    I actually use PansiSMS, it's lighter than GOSms.
    I tried to install GOSms to read the "sandboxed" sms, I removed it.

    Very annoying problem...

    What are your 'Push message settings..' in your stock messaging app?

    Receive push messages from network = FLAGGED (yes)
    Load service = Always

    I hope the translation in ok, I've done from italian.
    I've never changed this settings.

    I tell you that I can receive all other sms without problems, except from my girlfriend.

    Is there a way to reset the phone without losing data?
    Maybe this can help....

    I can't think of what it could be. Hopefully someone else here can help.

    I tried a soft reset of my device, with no results.
    So I did an HARD RESET and, after reinstalling all the software and data, all is finally working.
    I don't know how this problem has started...
    Anyway now the device works fine.
    Thanks for the support.
