Not getting any text messages on my 5S

Recently I've noticed that on my iPhone I can no longer receive text messages. I can send them but I haven't been able to receive them on my phone. I can send and receive iMessages just fine. Earlier today my mom called Sprint and all they did was made me update my PRL then said I had to go to a Sprint and get my device tested  :wall: Later this week I'm going to SoCal with my cousins without my parents and I need to be able to text them. I know that the talented and well educated people on this site can help me solve this problem before I go on my mini vacation.

Keep calling until they do a re-provision of your account. If that doesn't work, log out of iCloud off your phone, then reboot, and re log back in to iCloud.

I just thought of something could it be google voice integration?

I don't know. My friend has had problems sending MMS to non iPhone users for a while, and does not have Google Voice integration. The guy at the Sprint store told me to turn off iCloud and then back on.

 

But if you have G-Voice integration, you could try turning it off and see if that fixes it. Otherwise I don't know what else it would be.

Last time we had an issue like that it was a provisioning issue. Google Voice integration might have caused it if the problem started as you integrated, if it happened before then most likely not, either way the Sprint people will have to fix the provisioning issue.

Yes, did you enable it recently? Make sure the "Receive text messages on this phone" option is checked for your line in your Google Voice settings.

I've had it enabled ever since I came back to Sprint from a hiatus with AT&T because Sprint canceled my line and told me to leave. But it could have been that I was in Europe 2 weeks ago and installed the google voice app so I could check my voicemail. I just checked the settings and I didn't have receive text messages on this phone.

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
