Re: Can't receive text messages

Hi. I'm on pay monthly contract. I got Samsung s6 edge. It's been 5 6 years this was Lyca number then I transferred it to  Giffgaff and then finally on ee but it' more than 3 years I ported it shouldn't be the problem. Since I moved on ee I got this problem. Network problem where I live.   Messages problem. Call drop r take a while to connect n sometimes it go mute for a sec . Well that's another issue. Thanks

Hi @Saamir 

 

It sounds like we may need to try a network refresh to see if this helps.

 

Have you spoken to customer services in regards to this?

 

Many thanks,

Re: Can't receive text messages

No I did nothing. No restore n back up no factory reset. All I did is just left it like that n it get bck to normal. As I mentioned earlier I went to ee store sim replacement n tried sim in different fon. Checked msg centre number. Text to my own number. Switch mobile network to o2 n bck to ee. Restart my fon complete power off n on. Checked any of number was blocked.i think dats it. When nothing worked I left it like dat n started working n I received all d pending msgs. Miracle

Hi @KDF3,

 

Are you a new customer or is it a replacement SIM?

 

Are you using a pay as you go or pay monthly plan?

 

Thanks
