My brother works for tmobile lookd at my phone and nothing. Where the hey could it be. How do I recieve texts. people are texting me and nothing. I was forced to redownload handcent to recieve texts again. Help me cause I no longer want to use handcent.

    Have you tried a hard.reset of the phone? Or using an update tool?

    You can also give this a try, may save you from having to re-setup your phone.

    Not sure why wiping cache would fix this... And not sure why you don't have a text messaging app.

    Grey 1001 that did not work. I actually went into verizon the other day because of another problem and what you told me to do is what they did. I forgot to tell them about the orginal texting icon/feature.

    An update tool can restore your phone and check for updates try looking on the phones website for an update tool

    Try going to system settings>apps swipe the top from running over to all and scrol down until you get to the apps towards the bottom that have been disabled. It should be there. That's where I found it after I uninstalled go SMS.
