    So I was on CM7 Reloaded, the newest one, and today all of a sudden, I cannot receive or send text messages. So first I wiped both caches and reflashed, but it didn't work. Next I reverted to an earlier Nandroid backup I had of CM7 Reloaded that never had problems sending messages, and even that one cannot send. So I have no idea what to do, I am stuck with using Voice at the moment, but I would like my SMS back! Any ideas?

    all day today i haven't been receiving any sms messages at all from the people I've been sending them too, i was just thinking nobody had replied yet, but now its been a lot of hours going by and still nothing, i just flashed the cm7 reloaded rom about 3 days ago and everything was working until today. does yours say anything like failed to send or something like that? mine doesn't have any error messages coming out or anything, it just looks like they have been sent but i never get a reply

    Yeah there are no error messages at all! It looks like it sent fine, but no one I sent it to even got the message at all. Whyzor said its possible there's an outage in my area, but I can call and receive calls fine. He said to try a fresh install, I'm gonna see if that works, if not then there might be an outage. I'm in Missouri, maybe there's a problem here with SMS or something.

    Are you running a custom ROM? Okay, so I can confirm, I just did a complete fresh install of CM7 Reloaded, and I still cannot send or receive at all. Man, this sucks. Huh, that is weird. Outages in two completely different states?

    I'm in northwest Pennsylvania and I have the same problem. I thought I had run into a problem with CM9. I can stil call, but I can't receive sms, and they say they send, but I've tested and no one is actually receiving.

    EDIT: Just checked and it's not just rooted users. If you go to the VM USA page on facebook they're getting blown up with angry customers. They better get this fixed soon... but thank goodness I have google voice:)

    been having the same problem, can't even send them to myself so either virgin has a glitch, or they are stopping rooted or modded phones receiving texts which would be a wierd thing to stop.

    ok so you guys explained but yeah upstate NY is not texting on virgin.

    lol, came here thinking it was a problem with CM7 (I just put it on a couple hours ago). Glad to know it's not just me!

    Oddly enough, 3g / voice are still working just fine.

    There is currently an SMS outage for the entire Virgin Mobile network. They say that they are working on it.

    I was wondering what was up. I haven't received any texts since 19:30 EDT on Sunday -- even sending them to my VMU number from Google Voice is not working. I'm in Flint, MI.

    Hey guys, received a good suggestion that this thread might more properly belong in the Virgin Mobile carrier area, so we'll try it there.

    Cheers and hope the network comes back up soon for all.
