Today I hadn't really paid attention to my phone, but I realized people who usually reply to my texts hadn't replied all day.
I asked my dad why he didn't text me back, but he showed me where he had. A friend also told me that they had sent texts.
I have turned my phone off and back on, but I am not receiving any new messages, and I haven't all day. Please help!

SMS messages are not a guaranteed delivery service. Much like email, the messages are sent out over the network, and many factors can keep them from reaching the final destination. There is no guarantee that they will ever reach the desired destination, and they could be delayed by many different factors (like network nodes being down, nodes being overloaded and traffic being dropped, etc.).
People like to assume that SMS is guaranteed delivery, but it is not. Neither is email.

I had the same problem occur. It took me about three days to figure out the root cause of the problem, but in the end, the solution was to delete all of my text history. I even tried moving my sim card between two phones without success. What I didn't realize that all of my text history was on both phones. Something to try if you're trying to troubleshoot this issue.
