Default Sprint 8703e Not Receiving SMS messages

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys I'm new to Blackberry's and as I'm learning everything I'm just loving it that much more.

Anyways the issue I have is when I text people they are getting my Text but when they reply I am not getting them. I've tested been testing it on a friends phone for the last bit and just can't figure out whats wrong. He has my number entered with area code ect (using Carolina West RZR). Any help you guys can provide would be great.

Thanks

Do you ever get just new Text Messages? Like, if they sent them to you without replying?

I figure its just something I've done or not done because I spent an hour on the phone earlier with BB Tech Support and Sprint trying to get my browser working. Anyways I just happened to Provision it again and it works perfect now all except for not receiving incoming text messages (which hasn't worked at all).

Is it possible that incoming text messages are blocked on your account?

There's not much you can do about it from your end -- you'd need to get in touch with your carrier.

Well I've got unlimited Data and Text plans on my BB so it shouldn't be anything do with my plan being limited.

I also messed around a little further with this and found out that I'm getting text from Cingular and the only one I'm really having problems with is Carolina West (go figure its my old carrier and I left them b/c all of there stuff is out dated).

One other thing though is almost everyone from Carolina West is using a Moto Razr or one of its versions, could it possibly just be issues with texting between the two types of phones?
