Regular SMS messages not working

    So I'm having a peculiar problem...

    I use Google Voice for my text messaging so I'm not sure when this started. But I'd like to be able to at least receive text messages that people try to send to my main number. But what happens now is that I see the message text appear in the notification part temporarily, but when I go into the stock SMS app all I see is a separate blank message from "5556" and always with a date of March 26 and a time of 12:19AM. The actual message doesn't appear.

    I've used APNdroid and QuickSettings in the past to disable 3G but leaving the "allow MMS" option checked. Neither is currently enabled but maybe they mess with settings somewhere?

    And like I said, I have Google Voice installed too. Not sure what else could have messed with settings. My message center is set to "+13123149810".

    I have been searching and saw these threads so it's not unique:
    sms from 5556 after upgrade to cm6.0.1rc1 - xda-developers

    No solution though. Any thoughts from the Captivate crowd?
