    Can't Receive Texts!

    I can send texts but am no longer receiving them. Sometimes there's a delay in sending texts or the service cuts out for awhile, but all of a sudden I just quit receiving new texts.
    I can Send texts to people with different service providers and phone types. Their phones say the text sent no problem.

    Phone is an LG P-999.

    I've tried turning the phone off for a few hours, power cycling, rebooting and some refresher stuff of the text plan was done by tech support through my service provider (WIND mobile) that didn't work.
    I've deleted all my old texts and transferred apps to my SD card and deleted photos to clear extra space on my phone. Don't know what else to do.

    Any ideas?

    Are you using the built in messaging app? Have you tried a 3rd party one like Handcent or GO SMS?

    Try clearing the cache on the messaging app. Open up settings/applications/manage applications/all
    scroll down to messaging and clear cache. If that doesn't work, maybe a factory reset as a last resort?
