Unable to receive SMS on 8520

Although I can send SMS I have recently stopped receiving SMS on my phone -  I cannot find any previous SMS messages sent / received. I can receive emails.

I have rebooted my phone - I have deleted apps & none of this has re-instated my SMS.

SMS doesn't show in my options / advance options.

 

Before I wreck my phone - does anyone have the answer for me  -please? Thanks :smileyhappy:

Re: Unable to receive SMS on 8520

I had the same problem for nearly a month after I upgraded to version 5.0.  This helped.  Really thankful to Kioskea!

Follow these steps:
