Mobile phone not receiving text messages

Question: Mobile phone not receiving text messages

Sorry it isn't a computer question but is driving me mad. A friend and I keep in regular contact by text when she is away from home. Last week she suddenly was unable to receive my text messages even if I "replied" to hers. If I call her she can receive the calls. I'm on Orange who suggested I reset my network, my friend is on Vodaphone and has done the same. I have a Motorola, my friend a Nokia.Has anyone any ideas? It's really annoying, I can send text to others and she can receive text from others, just not me.Thanks and once again apologies for it not being a computer question.

Preferred Solution: Mobile phone not receiving text messages

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My lumia 630 has stopped receiving text messages, I can send messages to other phones but cant receiving messages. Phone worked fine for about a month

Answer:Why has my phone stopped receiving text messages (Lumia 630)?

It may be an issue with your carrier or your SIM card.
If you can send SMS, there is no fail message and recipients can verify they did in fact get the text, then your phone is configured properly and it is not hardware/software related to your handset.
SMS text lag is a known issue and is usually carrier side. I would consult with them and ask for A) a re-provision or B) a new SIM
Provisioning is when your account accesses are granted carrier side. On CDMA it is one method, on GSM another... A Re-Provision is the resend of those authorizations to where they reside in the system. A do over. LOL. To get a reprovision done usually requires escalating up the ladder in tech support. Most customer service types will have no clue what you are talking about. Request a help ticket and get the escalation process started.

I'm thinking about switching from my Lumia Icon to a Samsung Galaxy S6 since I'm getting tired of waiting for Microsoft to bring a new Windows Phone to Verizon. I will return to Windows eventually though if Microsoft ever releases a decent flagship Windows Phone on Verizon again. But until then I'm getting quite fed up and I'm losing my patience. I've waited over 2 years for a new phone and now it seems like it could be more years before there's even a possibility of a new flagship coming to Verizon. I'm locked in to Verizon because of a shared business account so I can't just switch carriers on a whim. If I do switch though, will I be able to transfer all my contacts and text messages over to the S6?

Answer:Can you transfer text messages and contacts from a Windows Phone to an Android phone?

Hi there,
WindowsCentral members would be more familiar with transferring SMS to a Windows Phone, rather than away from it.
Contacts definitely can be transferred. I'm not sure about SMS (Samsung Smart Switch is for transferring data from another Android device or an iPhone).
I'd suggest that you ask over at our sister site AndroidCentral. They would probably be better able to help. Ask a Question - Android Forums at

Thanks in advance

Answer:Why aren't I receiving messages of incoming calls made when the phone was off or in flight mode?

Have you turned on MCN (Missed Call Notification) ? If no, then ask your network operator to turn it ON for you. It's not free in most countries so you better check monthly charges for those services.
PS: It doesn't have to do anything with the phone or OS, it's completely network based service.

First of all Happy Holidays to everyone. Now, is there any way of making the Lumia 521 with Windows 8.1 Vibrate when receiving a phone call, and make a tone sound when receiving texts? It seems the only way I was able to make the cell phone truly vibrate (by truly I mean that the phone was vibrating constantly and not just two intermittent vibrations every now and then) was by muting the ring tone sounds, turning vibrate on, and getting the vibrate sign on the corner of the screen (vibrate mode I presume); however, this silents the text sounds obviously. I then tried changing the phone and messaging settings to vibrate off/on, notification off/on in the notifications + actions section and nothing. The closest I got to what I wanted to do, was to include a silent ring tone when receiving a call, but since it's not in vibrate mode, I got the annoying two intermittent vibrations only, not the real vibrate mode. Am I doing something wrong, has somebody managed to get these settings right? Is there even a way to do it? Thanks guys.

Answer:Windows Phone 8.1 - Vibrate when receiving a phone call, and tone sound when receiving texts?

Constant Vibration chews through battery. I'm sure that is why it isn't enabled.
If by "real" vibration you mean a constant vibration, I would find that "real" annoying. I don't let my phone vibrate at me! Never have and never will. I understand that different users have different preferences. I read a lot of posts where users want some sort of constant nag function set up on their phones... Vibrate, blinking lights, something that never stops until attended to. The OS is just not designed that way.

There are a variety of free services that you can use (independently of your ISP).I use O2. You have to register on their website (click here) and give them a mobile phone number (i.e. yours) that they send an activation code to. Once done you can send 10 short free texts a month. You can also buy more texting capacity.Otherwise just search for "free texts" and take your pick.

"This application allows you to block unwanted phone calls and SMS from phone numbers defined by you. By using this application, you agree that Microsoft Mobile may pre-scan your incoming text messages. NO information regarding your messages is sent to Microsoft Mobile or any third party."
Are all text messages being "pre-scanned" or just the ones from blocked numbers? If Microsoft Mobile is pre-scanning the text messages, why does the statement say no information is sent to Microsoft Mobile. They already have it, no? Why does anything need to be "pre-scanned" to be blocked? What does "pre-scanning" mean?

Answer:how to export text messages to pc from my lg lancet phone

If it's the Windows Phone 8.1 version of the Lancet, the contacts+message backup app (free) says it will "backup" the text messages into an XML format to an SD card. Specs for the Lancet indicate it has an SD card slot. I'm sure the file could be copied off the SD card to a PC via a USB cable to the phone or by removing the SD card and accessing it with a PC using an adapter or built in reader. I don't know how easy it would be for a person to read the texts in that format. The app seems to be more interested in being able to restore the messages to another WP. I've never used the app, so can't vouch for it.
Update: I just installed the app and it did backup my contacts and almost 10,000 text messages. As I suspected, its not formatted for human reading. here is an example of one SMS (with phone number redacted):
<Body>Still on for this afternoon?</Body>
The backup files were stored on my SD card in a folder named backup+restore and subfolder smsbackup. I was not asked where to store the file but the app description says it can write to the phone's internal storage or an SD card so apparently it will put it on the SD card if present and possibly internal storage if no SD car...

How I have my phone set up:
Phone is Nokia Lumia 520 - ATT
I have 2 groups of contacts, which are 'family' and 'common contacts'. I pull all contacts from outlook online and facebook, in addition to the phone itself. So family and common contacts do not have all my contacts listed in them, because there are quite a few. Only the ones I really need.
These contact 'boxes' tell me who has texted me in the past, by saying 'New Message', etc. Also, my lock screen tells me if I have missed texts, calls, etc.

Pic of Contacts box:
Pic of lock screen
The Problem:
I have more than 7 messages listed on the lock screen that I cannot find the source to.
They aren't in my family or common contacts or it would display 'new message' in the green box, so they must be from someone else in my address book.
Also, whenever someone who is not a family or common contact messages me, I get the message, but no notification except on the lock screen (which says how many new messages I have, but not who from). Very strange. Any suggestions?

The phone I am using is an Apple iPhone, the latest as of July, 2015.

I received an unsolicited, sexually suggestive text message at about 8:40 PM on 09/10/16. I discovered it the next morning. It contained a Tinyurl link. About 5 hours later that morning on the same phone something that sounded like a movie started playing by itself. I couldn't find the movie on my phone in the browser or anywhere else. So I couldn't see anything. I could only hear the man & woman talking. I wasn't paying close attention to the dialogue because I was looking for a way to shut it off. But it didn't seem sexual. It was just weird how it just started playing by itself. I never did find where it was coming from or how to shut it off. It just turned off on its own after playing a couple of minutes.

A few minutes after that, a website opened up on my browser by itself. It was a lude animated picture. And the text on the site read:"PAY ATTENTION! You're about to see nude pictures of women and girls in your neighborhood. Please be discreet." The URL of the website is hxxp://

Answer:Text Message Spam & Unauthorized Control of My Mobile Phone

We tend to see smartphones as almost impossible to hack. Nothing is 100% safe. The App Store and Google Play Store both have security products available to download. I have one on my Samsung Galaxy S6.

There's not much you can do to stop unsolicited text messages. They are mostly sent at random. Never open a link or file you may receive from an unknown number. Many apps like Facebook will share your number with other apps. Be careful with whom you share your number.

If you receive repeated text messages from the same source, you can of course block the number. Unfortunately, spam always comes from different numbers or email addresses. There are apps that can help with spam, but they involve a lot of configuration on your part. You may end up blocking calls you may not want to block.

I switched from from Lumia 950 to Galaxy s7. Same Verizon account. Since Android does not play well at all with Windows, I have not been able to retrieve some precious text messages of my grand children. I looked everywhere in Outlook, Verizon Cloud but so far no luck.

Answer:How do I download videos in text messages on Windows phone that is no longer active?

To the best of my knowledge, Lumia 950 never worked on Verizon.
Maybe you had some limited functionality? Were you ever able to get Video out of texts sent to the 950 while you were using the 950?
If so, put your Vzw SIM back in the 950. Download (save) the Videos and put them on the SD card. Transfer them off the card to your computer or put them on the Galaxy S7.

I can connect my mobile phone to my laptop to access the net, but i am thinking of purchasing a mobile modem instead as my phone is only 200mb per month maximum, which is pretty poor. This is on o2. I know other companies have better deals but i do not want to switch networks. I do not want to use a home phoneline for the internet so i thought a mobile modem would be a better option. How does it compare to net access via a mobile phone? Thanks for any info

Answer:Is a usb mobile modem much faster than a mobile phone on the net?

You probably get about 1.1Mbit/sec out of it, nowhere near the reported speeds of 3.6Mbit/sec as I don't think the service has started yet.They are expensive to buy and run however very portable.If you are only using from home then BB on cable or phone line is much cheaper.

Hi,I Have A Question Here
My Phone Is Lumia 630 And When I Bought My 630 Last Year There's No USB Cable In The Lumia 630 Box/Package And The Charger Cable Is Different.
So,Yesterday I Just Download Windows Insider Program And Its Say My Phone Is Compatible For Downloading Windows 10 Insider (For Phone) So I Download It. The WP10 Works Fine On My 630 Yesterday.Today The WP10 Crash A Lot And I Think I Want To Go Back To WP 8.1 And So I Go To All Settings > About > My Phone And It's Show The Detail Of My Phone And In Very Bottom Of It There's A Button Of Reset My Phone And So I Did Reset My Phone.
But Then When Reseting There's A Bar Which Shows Me How Many Percent The Reset Work. But Suddenly It Go To 100% And My 630 Phone Shows An Unhappy (it Looks Like An Unhappy Emoticon) (Not Working/Error Maybe) And Turned Off By Itself
And Everytime I Try To Turn On My Phone It Happen Again
So I Search How To Go Back To WP 8.1 And It's Say 630 Must Use Lumia Recovery Tool.
My Question Is:
1.How I Fix My Phone??
2.Can I Use Other USB Phone Cable That Can Be Use By My 630 To Be Use For Lumia Recovery Tool For Downloading WP 8.1
That's It

Answer:Error Reset My Windows Phone 10 Mobile, How Can I Fix My Phone?

1. Use below link to get the recovery tool (and see how to use it)
2 Yes you can use another USB cable but use a good quality one.
3 When you did the factory reset was your phone connected to a charger, if not it may have run out of battery resulting in the problem you now have.
4 It is to late now but you should have checked what and how to roll back before you updated to W10.
Anyhow good luck.

I've got a client who has started receiving duplicate messages. This has just recently started to occur. She is using Netscape Messenger (v.4.7), with Win98. I don't believe that she has changed any of her settings, so does anybody have a suggestion?


Answer:Receiving duplicate messages

Found this. Its for OE though.

The bug appears when you have more than one POP3 mail account on one server, and any of the accounts use the "Leave on Server" option. To use more than one POP3 account on one server, disable "leave on Server" or only use one POP3 account on that server with each instance of the OE client (per windows instance or per machine.) Mike M found a fix for this If you enter the IP address for your pop server in Accounts/Mail for those mail accounts where you wish to leave the message on the server and the alias name for your pop server in Accounts/Mail for those mail accounts where you are not leaving the messages on the server. This little fudge, whilst still accessing the same server, seems to overcome the present problems. If you don't know the IP address for your server then may I suggest you ping the server using its alias from a DOS box. This will then report the full IP addres

Hi I have a Nokia E63 sometimes when I receive a text message the phone tells me it cannot receive the message because the memory is full, and prompts me to delete items.

Hi Chaps,So far today, I've received 15 messages into my mailbox. I'm with Eclipse, and have sent them an e-mail asking how I'm getting these - you see, the addy they're sending to isn't actually mine! For example, e [email protected](my account), and [email protected](my account)- none of my mailboxes are called e [email protected] or [email protected]! All seem to be regarding WW2 Bombings, example one has the subject: 'Dresden bombing is to be regretted enormously' and 'Dresden 1945' and other subjects are in German. At first, I thought I'd got some kinda Virus, but I'm not sure I have, but maybe Eclipse servers has? They all have links in the main body of the messages, directing to WW2 info, mainly how bad a time the Germans had. Has anyone else had these messages? AngeTheHippyxx

I am receiving ?out of memory? messages when I try to save work in word and Excel. After reading some of the threads in this forum during the week I realised I have some problems that need help. I asked my grandson to remove his music onto discs and to uninstall Karzza, Morheus and anything else related.Then I downloaded Ad-aware as advised in the forum. It revealed 644 objects, some were deleted by the program, about 35 items, the others are still there! Things like Dialers, Cydoor, Aureate. Malware, Gator, New.Net, and loads of others I?ve vaguely seen mentioned but smugly thought ?doesn?t effect me? ?I?ve got ZoneAlarm and AVG?. Having installed Ad-aware I? m not sure what to do with it! It asks me to name the file I want quarantined. Does that mean all 644 objects? Would I be better off reformatting?

I am running Outlook 2016 on an HP laptop, purchased new November 2015, with Windows 7 Professional and MS Office. Outlook stopped receiving messages automatically about 3 weeks ago. I went into file/options/advanced. It looks like everything is set up for automatic receive whether online or offline. When I click on the send/receive all folders button, a window opens, the green bar runs halfway across while ?task 1 of 2? displays. The window then closes. I?m guessing the ?send? task is working but ?receive? is not. The problem has been worsening. I can go days without messages showing up in Outlook.

In order to read messages I need to open Comcast Xfinity email. Thinking the problem was too little space I deleted old messages and emptied the trashcan. My usage is now just 10% of my allocation. There is no problem with Comcast (as far as I can determine) but incoming messages are not showing up in Outlook.

I rebooted and received a number of Windows updates. The problem continues.

As I mentioned, this started about 3 weeks ago. I haven?t loaded new software or made other changes aside from the Windows updates. Does anyone have a fix for this?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Hi. I have a POP email account through NameBargain which is not receiving any emails. I'm using the inbox that NameBargain provides.

The odd thing is it only stopped receiving emails about five days ago - up until then it had been working fine. It is also sending emails (although it's not sending any attachments).

I discovered this issue because I was trying to use this POP through a gmail inbox, and I wasn't receiving the verification email. I've tried sending the account multiple test emails, but no luck.

Does anyone know why this might be happening, and how this issue could be corrected? I would really appreciate some help.

Thank you!

Answer:Outlook 2003 not receiving messages

Mail isn't SENT anywhere - it is retrieved by whichever program you use to access your ISP's POP3 server. If you have Outlook Express configured to retrieve your mail automatically, without leaving messages on the server, there will be no mail for Outlook to collect. Delete your mail settings in Outlook Express and make sure it isn't set to try to retrieve mail, then set up Outlook with your email settings and get it to retrieve mail instead.

Yesterday my cousin was infected with a MSN / WLM virus. Basically it sent a message out to all her contacts saying "OMG, is this you? :S (link to JPEG image file)".

Thinking nothing of it, I clicked on it and a DOS or PIF file or something was downloaded to my PC. I deleted it straight away, checked for any unwanted services and startup programmes, ran several virus scans with different software and all seemed to be well.

However, now, when I use Windows Live Messenger, very often I don't receive messages and invites from contacts and sometimes they don't from me. I've tried reinstalling Windows Live several times but to no avail.

I've posted about this problem before, but I never really figured it out. On my computer at home, both Outlook and Thunderbird download all of my messages from my email account (with Comcast). But I am trying to set up a different Comcast account on a different computer and it is only getting unread messages.

How can I get all the messages off the server? I'm guessing this is a problem with a preference with Comcast but, I could be wrong.

It used to be fine but is not any more.

While there are surely new messages on a server (Gmail in particular) Thunderbird doesn't get them. There's sometimes a message at the bottotm : receiving messages (i.e.) 1 of 5 but after a while it stops and no new messages are loaded. I'm sure everything is well configured as it used to work fine until these days.
Is it b/c there are too many messages on my account??

What's stranger is that sometimes TBird's trying to get 'new' messages which've already been downloaded before. It displays then 'receiving messages 1 of 21' (while only two or three are new!!, not 21!) and sometimes one message is downloaded 30 times at a time!!!

Is there anybody using TBird with the same problem??

Hi Guys,

I am dealing with a mailbox where emails just seem to be refused when they could be vaguely spam like. The server is a private mail server (not Gmail etc). I have tried sending a load of spam to get account through a spam tester. 7 emails sent from the spam tester. A few got through and delivered to the inbox which, whilst isn't brilliant, is better than not getting them at all. 2/3 of them simply were not received at all. This is on a brand new Thunderbird set up using IMAP.

Interestingly, a company emailed this mailbox and they received the following reply. The email was never received:

These popups are occurring about once a day. They have various names, and Google searches on the DLL names are returning no items. SpyBot appears to believe that I'm clean, as does SuperAntiSpyware. Funny thing - neither SpyBot nor SuperAntiSpyware start automatically upon startup any longer (this has me worried...)

Per Windows Update instructions, I recently updated to IE 8. This may/may not (probably!) was around the time the popup began occurring, but better to be safe than sorry.

Another issue I've encountered recently, around the same time frame, is that my SigmaTel C-Major Audio card has stopped working. Device Manager seems to think it's functioning properly. I've tried disabling/re-enabling it, as well as shutting down/starting up the system. No help. I've tried using the WIndows troubleshooting tool to help fix it. Nada.

One other thing that happened around the same time that's probably unrelated - I stopped receiving email notifications from Facebook (stop laughing.) No settings were changed.

Any help on any of my crap would be appreciated.

For the last few days I've had trouble receiving some random e-mails. We're running XP Pro and we have a couple of user profiles. Usually if the message is sent to each persons profile either both of them get it or neither one gets it. In one instance though I know for sure that one got it and one didn't even though it's the same computer. That seems to be the exception to the rule and more often than not they both get it or they both don't.

I may get a message from someone, then an hour later they send another message that I don't get and then they may send a third message that I do get. It is very random and it may be an original message that someone sends that I don't get or it may be a reply to my e-mail that I don't get. It's not just happening with one person either, I know of at least several people that send me stuff that I may or may not ever get.

The computer is up to date on maintenance/virus scans etc. I've gone to the web directly to my providers server and I don't have an accumulation of messages there. When I spoke with my provider they didn't have any immediate answers for me but they'll check in with me later they said. They asked if I could get the senders to send an SMTP log to trace the messages from the source but it seems unusual to me since this is happening with multiple sources not just one (sender).

Hello everyone, I am new to this forum. I have Windows 7 (64 bit) on my PC.

I have an odd problem with Windows Live Mail. As soon as I installed it, I unchecked the following options under Options -> General:

Check for new messages every ... (30 minutes) and
Send and receive messages at startup.

So these options now DO NOT have the check mark next to them.

Despite this, my Windows Live Mail checks for new email messages on all accounts (both for my ISP, my hosting as well as on Gmail accounts) every 30 minutes or perhaps every 1 hour and downloads any new email messages, even when I don't tell it to do so. I am not sure about the exact time period but it certainly checks for new emails even when I don't tell it to do so. If I leave the computer overnight I always find new emails downloaded by tomorrow morning.

What could be the reason for this and is there any way to permanently switch it off?

Answer:Windows Mail keeps receiving messages

I have the identical issue; a year and a half later and no comments or suggestions? Must not be a pressing issue in the WLM users world. Is it my imagination or is WLM at the bottom of M$oft's support priorities? I wonder if W8 will have the same buggy WLM?

okay, like everyone else who finds themselves here, I'm frustrated. Here's my problem.

I bought a new pc in June then added DSL a few days later. I recently realized that I'm no longer receiving yahoo offlines on this machine (honestly I'm not sure I ever did on this machine). I first had people IM me when I logged off to see if this was really the problem. I rec'd nothing, even tho they copied and pasted what they'd sent.

Background info. I'm running Norton, SBC Protection tools (minus antivirus per suggestion of Norton -- once Norton trial is over I'll switch to all SBC Protection), and windows built-in firewall.

What I've tried.
1. Treating Yahoo as an 'exception'/control panel
2. SBC Customer Service
3. Yahoo Customer Service
4. Googleling
5. Eating chocolate.
6. Uninstalling Yahoo Messenger
7. Upgrading to the 7.0 Beta Messenger
8. Called ex-boyfriend who claims to 'have skills'
9. Auto Repair (rec'd message can't clear cache DNS)
10. Cleared cookies, history, etc.

So far, none of the above helped (okay maybe the chocolate).

I'm stuck and I'm not sure what else to try. Any help is appreciated.

Hello i have a laptop, with Network & Modem i want to connet to the internet using my Nokia 5110 what do i need and what do i do or is it even possiable p.s i have a Nokia 5110 Data Cable (Sirial)

Thanks for any replys!

Answer:Mobile Internet using mobile phone

a serial data cable can't connect to the internet.
First of all you need a data capable phone which I don't think the 5110 can.

You need a 6210 or 7110 etc more info on nokia website

Even with data phone I've never heard of a suitable cable but you can connect using infrared adapter - you need infrared capability on phone too. I guess it would be dead slow too.

if you want to connect to internet on laptop but a nokia card phone. You put it in you PCMCIA slot after putting your SIM into it and it acts like your phone. It's fast and reliable but about £150 GBP

I receive text messages from everyone except one person. I get text messages from this person just fine unless it is a group text. If in a group text I get texts from everyone else fine except this one person and it just shows his name with no content?

Answer:Not receiving content in a text?

You should check to make sure others aren't having this problem with that specific individual. I've often seen MMS issues from specific android phones and it's usually specific to their phone. Has nothing to do with your settings.

I am receiving many double and triple inbound messages on one of my POP3 accounts. My other mail accounts with the same ISP are fine. I just clicked on Send/Receive today and it wants to download another 441 messages, so I had to stop it. My INBOX for this account is up to date, it already has messages up to MAR 04, 2009. I have the account set to delete from server when deleted from DELETED ITEMS folder. This problem just started on MAR 03, 2009.
VISTA Home Premium-32 bit SP1, Windows Mail.

1. Can anyone tell me what is causing this and how to correct it?

2. How can I remove the dups and triples without having to do it one by one; there are hundreds?
