Alcatel 5059R won't receive texts after software update

Made the mistake of letting a software update run and now I'm not receiving texts.  This is a phone AT&T sent to me when they shut down my previous one a few months ago and it has been nothing but trouble.  Can I back up to yesterday before the software "update"?  Or is there another fix?  I've been a LONG time paying AT&T customer.  I don't need a top of the line phone, but I need one that works and they've sent me this headache.  Seriously considering switching providers after all this if it doesn't get fixed.  Thanks.
