Captivate will not receive texts

Samsung Captivate on 2.2


Incoming SMS not working.


Outgoing SMS works fine.


Incoming and out going MMS work fine.


Message Center number is correct


ATT says they can see the incoming messages on their side.


Have deleted all messages to ensure a limit was not reached.


Have pulled battery and SIM multiple times.


No task killers installed.


No apps recently downloaded, nothing recently updated except for facebook.



Looking for any other suggestions before I factory reset...
