Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community.
Are you able to send SMS Messages? Can you please check to verify that your firewall isn't blocking your SMS Messages? You can find the Firewall settings in Options > Security Options > Firewall. If SMS Messages has a checkmark next to it, please try removing the checkmark, saving your change and testing to make sure you can receive SMS Messages again. Please note that any messages that were already blocked by the firewall will not be received on the BlackBerry Curve 8900 smartphone.
Hope this helps.

Many thanks for the reply. I have managed to sort this by restoring my phone. I backed everything up and performed the security wipe. It started to work but then after putting all my data back on it went back to no SMS's!
I then did the restore again and this time only transfer actual data i needed and not settings back to the phone. This worked fine. It must have been a setting somehwere
