Re: Can't receive SMS messages on iphone

Try the usual troubleshooting options. Reset, power the phone off for a few minutes and then turn it back on, check your settings to make sure nothing changed (make sure SMS is on)...restore if nothing else seems to work. These are all things that Apple or VZW will ask you to do first. Hopefully something as simple as powering the phone off works.
