Contacts unable to receive my text messages

I just recently updated my HTC Thunderbolt's firmware on Sunday, Feb. 10th.  Since then, I had an activation error message and my closest friend isn't receiving my text messages.  I went to the nearest Verizon store and explained my problem.  I was told it was probably just a sim card issue.  Since being issued a new sim card, the activation error has gone away but my closest friend still only receives some of my text messages. 

Does anyone have a solution to this problem?  This has never happened to me before and I really need to be able to communicate with her.  Thanks in advance for any help. 

Re: Contacts unable to receive my text messages

I had the activating sim message on the screen for the first time today when I restarted my phone. Just a software issue I guess since I could see thatthe phone was connected in the status bar. I really don't know why this would be an issue 1 week after the update. I've not had text issues thank goodness.
