    Exclamation iPhone 4 SMS not working. Help please???

    How to get SMS working on iPhone 4?

    Some people receive my SMS texts, but I can never receive theirs unless they have an iPhone.
    One person cant receive mine and I can receive theirs.. and they are on Boost Mobile.

    My phone is on Straight Talk, and I transferred from Boost Mobile. I already have my calling and data working and wifi. I called them for 30 minutes yesterday trying to get this set. I transferred about 7pm EST on 3/31/12 . They said to just wait and in time it will resolve. But nothing is improving.
    I checked the settings under messages and have turned iMessages on and off, but that is just for iPhone to iPhone.

    What can I do? I am on 5.1 and am NOT jailbroken nor unlocked. ATT iPhone.

    Keep iMessage off and text someone with an iPhone see if that works also try restarting your phone if you haven't if that dosent work delete and reinstall APN worst case do a backup and restore.

    The APN setting does not affect SMS. SMS messages are sent using voice circuits and not data. Usually the problem is that the third party message aggregator has not updated its routing database to show the new destination carrier. Boost Mobile is still trying to route the messages as if the Original Poster is still a Boost subscriber.

    There's nothing you can do except wait and if after a few days it doesn't fix itself, contact ST.

    From your description, it sounded like the exact same problem I was experiencing but once I turned off iMessage in Settings/Messages it started working for me. But since you tried that already, not quite sure what else could be causing it. I'd contact ST if it continues.
