Hello, MakeMeLaugh and hrmlmjl!


Thanks for posting. I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble receiving text messages.


Have you tried restarting the device? Do you have any software updates pending or available? I would also advise checking your text messaging settings by clicking on the text message icon, then clicking the menu button, and selecting the "Settings" option.
