    New to the forum. Glad I found it.
    I have an Atrix MB860 on AT&T with 2 HD docks, a laptop dock, 20 batteries, etc. Simply put. I love this phone.

    System Version 4.5.141.MB860.ATT.en.US
    Android 2.3.6
    Kernel 2.6.32.9
    a21146@zch451nxdroid55 #2
    Build 4.5.141


    About a month ago, I started getting calls from angry friends and family wondering why I haven't returned their texts.

    Apparently, I hadn't received any texts for 3 days. I deleted every text I have, then restarted my phone.

    Then I received a text. It was the one I had received 3 days before. And that's all I received.

    So I deleted it. Minutes later, it re-appears. The cycle repeats as long as I do this until after many phone restarts....

    All the texts that have been waiting to get to my phone come in one after the other nonstop.

    Then all is well again.

    This issue happened 2 more times, and has actually just started again yesterday (fourth time)

    I did everything I could with AT&T, and all they ever say is factory reset. (Would rather not. TOo much work to set up phone again)

    I did discover something. I put my SIM in an older phone, and all my texts came in to the older (AT&T Tilt 2) phone.

    When I put the SIM back in the Atrix, things come back to normal after a while.

    I've also tried deleting my messaging cache (Settings-manage apps-all-messaging-clear cache)

    It seems this is recurring, and rather annoying.

    I don't know the ins and outs of the OS, but it seems something in my Atrix is preventing the incoming queue of messages, perhaps by not sending a flag to AT&T's message center to say"Hey, I already received that one, so don't send it again. I'm ready for the new one."

    Also, I can send without a problem to anyone. (Except myself) They all receive the messages.


    Has anyone ever seen or heard of such a problem?

    Can anyone offer a solution?

    Kind Regards,

    Kenny

    Hi and welcome to the site!

    Did AT&T try replacing the SIM card? Did they try booting you off the network and the reactivating?

    I can't say I've seen this exact issue, but I have seen the need for a new SIM after a long time of successful use. It also seems different phones handle SIMs differently, which may be why the Tilt was just fine with it.

    As much of a pain as I know it is, it may be a good idea to try the reset. Sometimes a fresh start does quite a bit of good.

    Same issue

    I'm having the same issue of not being able to receive messages. It happened for a day and then went away and now it's back again. Did you ever find a solution? This problem is extremely frustrating o.e
    If you have the solution could you PM me with details?
    Thanks so much!

    Hello Calebmoo, and welcome to the forum.

    I had to remove your personal email address and change it to PM because you don't want to know what happens when spammers get ahold of a personal email address. They have bots which cruise the internet looking for naked email addresses to harvest, and bad things happen when they get yours - bad things.

    No, dont PM the details please, what about all of us that have the same problem? We aren't benefiting anyone else by being private in the solution department. Geeze
