You'd need to talk to you carrier. SMS/MMS issues quite often are issues with your carrier's provisioning.

I had the same problem and spoke with tech support 4 times. They were very nice but didn't fix the problem. I did some investigating and here's the fix:
1. go to options
2. go to MMS
3. uncheck the 2 boxes under Message filtering

All text messages will then be received

Good Luck

Skip

Tried that and it did not work. I have had a nightmare dealing with the lack of receiving text messages issue. I have to go through a series of battery pulls, restarts, host table registers, etc. to get just the text messaging to work for a short period of time. After dealing w/ this for a few days, I said screw it and ordered a new one. I will continue to demand a new phone until I receive one that works the way I paid for it to.
