    Default sms stopped working :(

    My roommate has been using my phone to text his girlfriends. He has been doing this at least 4 hours a day for the last couple of weeks. (Almost every second I am home and not on my phone) Every thing has been working okay more or less, aside from a random missed text or two.

    Last night though, I stopped receiving ANY text messages at all. People are able to receive my texts, but none get in. (I verified this by texting my Google Voice number.)

    I did not get the insurance, since I knew that I would be rooting my phone to ROM it. I really can't afford a new one right now, so I have to try and troubleshoot it myself.

    Problem is I have no idea how to troubleshoot sms. Does anyone have any idea what I can do to fix/troubleshoot this problem?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Edit: I had already tried re-booting 3 times and it did not help. After reading somewhere that rebooting helped someone else, I decided to try it a 4th time and that worked?! Weird. Anyway its working now.

    Hope this helps someone else.

    I sometimes like to power down the phone and pull the battery for 5 minutes or so, completely clear the system and start fresh, ya know?

    Otherwise the only other thing I'd try would be to run the activate app again

    Thanks jdcnosse. Next time this happens I will try that.

    I would have had to re-flash stock to do that, so I am really glad I didn't have to.

    phones are very personal. should probably try keeping it to yourself next time. avoids problems of other people screwing up your personal property
