    Anyone got a BYOP Lg G3 ATT?

    This is a shot in the dark from my thread "this dog wont text" where I have a BYOP Lg G3, maybe 3 years old, that suddenly decided it wont send or recieve sms texts, even though it looks like it is sending them.
    I would like to know if you have this phone if yours still works as far as texting.

    Short answer: Yes, texting still works on my old LG G3 with a BYOP TF/AT&T SIM.

    Long answer: about 2 years ago, I bought a like-new LG G3. Somehow I cracked the under-layer of the screen while installing a case (how ironic is that?). The right-half of the screen is unviewable, so I never activated/used it. Today, I took the nano BYOP TF/AT&T SIM from my LG Q6, put it into a micro adapter and installed it in the LG G3. I did not update any app because it was difficult to navigate with just 1/2 the screen visible. I used the "Messaging" app on it to do some SMS texting to my LG G6 on FreeUp Mobile and it sent/received fine.

    I managed to finish all 32 app updates on my LG G3. The "Messaging" app (version 4.70.34, light-yellow square icon) still sends/receives SMS fine.

    Thanks Boz1. I'm quoting that response for others.

    "Thanks, but I fixed my problem, or at least identified it.
    Senility.
    I use pinzoo which keeps track of my "cards" I buy so I can prove this.

    I normally buy 90 day cards for my TMFL BYOP sim, right? I am not a guy who uses the phone much anyway....everything just keeps getting bigger every 90 days. Well, I took a trip (I take 9 a year) and ended up using lots of texts...No problem, I thought, before my next 2 trips, I will try one of those new fangled 30 day 500 min, 500 text, 500 meg cards! What could possibly go wrong? So I went on the two trips, came home, and ran out of texts! That cant be! But there it is...a big fat red 0 in the text bucket....how could that be?
    The problem is that I would have sworn on a stack of bibles that I added that 500 texts, but Pinzoo shows I never did...
    I have never run out of anything and didnt know that TF wouldnt send me an email or something.
    So thanks to all for their efforts but the problem was an ancient man with false memories. My appologies."
