Default Can't receive SMS messages from non contacts

Please Login to Remove!

Hey all, first time poster. I have a Blackberry Curve 8520, and I can receive SMS and MMS messages from people who I have in my contacts, but I can't from those who are not in my contacts.

This is particularly frustrating if I am at a store trying to cash in on a special offer they have, but can't see what it is because I can't see the text message code from them, so any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Look at your Options > Security > Firewall, scroll to the bottom, do you the firewall enabled for SMS, except for those in your Address Book?
