    Default Unable to receive texts through Straight Talk on N4

    I just got my N4 up and running on Straight Talk (AT&T side). I went through and made sure all the ARN settings were what they were suppose to be. I can send both picture and non-picture texts fine, but cannot receive either. What do I have set wrong?
    Here are my ARN settings.

    Hmm, your settings are the same as mine. You should be able to receive texts. Have someone try again. Maybe it takes a while to get everything set up on their (ST-ATT) side?

    Thanks. I found the problem. My Messenger icon is missing so even though the texts are coming in, and I have "Auto-retreive" selected, they do not pop up on my screen. How can I get the icon back on my screen? BTW with the above settings I am getting 5.4mps downloads and 1.3mbs uploads.

    Find the icon in the app drawer, and long press it.
