Just wondering if anyone else has run into this issue?


We've updated a Galaxy S5 to Android 7.1.2 and it's on the Skinny network. I can make and receive calls, send text messages, but not receive text messages.


I've checked in the *#*#4636#*#* menu and the number there appears to be correct, it says "6427743860",145


I'd compare it to my Note 3 running Samsung's edition of android also on Skinny, but it doesn't seem to bring up the menu.


We've got a backup to go back to the old Samsung android on the S5 if needed, but hopefully we can get this going as everything else seems to work perfectly.


Any thoughts? Thanks! :)

Message Centre Number is only used for sending not incoming and really it's not even needed for sending anymore and the SMSR uses the IMSI attached to MSISDN

Have you tried a different SMS app? I recommend using either Google's "Messages" app (on the Play Store), or Pulse SMS.

Ah thanks, good to know it's not an issue with that.


Thanks, I'll give the other SMS apps a go now too.


Update: Hmm no luck with the other apps (Google messaging was the default one and Pulse SMS didn't receive - although very cool app, might keep that!).
