    I haven't been able to receive texts occasionally (about 40% of the time) on my LG Power L22C with Tracfone service. Phone calls and data are working. The only change recently is that I've downloaded a new app (Pokemon Go). I have plenty of storage left, however, (4GB/8GB) so I'm not sure if the two are related. Is anyone else having this issue or knows what could be happening? Thanks in advance.

    I would speak to your provider. I think it incredibly unlikely that Pokemon Go is anything to do with your problem, I suspect that's just coincidence.

    If anyone else is curious / has the same problem, I've deduced it down to a RAM deficiency after getting nowhere with my provider. My LG only has 1GB of RAM, and the pokemon go app uses every little bit of it! Using pokemon go = no texts, completely closed pokemon go = texts!
