Default Not Receiving Texts From Other Carriers

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I just switched to AT&T from T-Mobile 3 days ago. I opened a brand new line with a brand new number (did not port my old number). The Curve is GREAT, but I am not receiving text messages from carriers other than AT&T.

I can send text messages to my old T-Mobile phone but do not receive messages from it on my Curve. I also did not receive text messages from friends who are on T-Mobile and Verizon, though they can receive messages I send them.

I know this is a known issue and AT&T customer care told me to wait 24 hours, but I'm wondering if anyone knows of a solution. Thanks!

I would wait the 24 hours to see, and then, if still having issues, contact AT&T customer care. There may be an issue with your account if it doesn't resolve by that time.

Would wait 24 hours. Most stuff isn't fully activated until then.
