To resume receiving messages, simply unblock the person from whom you want to receive texts, or check your message settings to confirm whether you’ve blocked them.

4. Try sending or receiving a text message from a different number

If you encounter this issue, consider sending or receiving a text message from a different mobile number to determine whether the problem lies in sending or receiving. If you find that the issue persists with that number, there may be a misconfiguration in your internet or SMS settings.

There might be some misconfiguration in your current messaging app, whether you’ve made changes or it’s occurred due to a recent update or app bug. To address this, head to the Play Store and download a different messaging app. For example, if you’re not using Google Messages, you can try that app, or you might want to check out the Samsung Messages app, which I highly recommend.

5. Reset Network Settings

As I mentioned earlier, there might be some misconfigurations or changes in the APN settings that could be causing issues with the basic functions of your messaging app. To resolve this, you need to reset the network settings.

  • Check your phone’s text message limit. Some phones have a limit on the number of text messages you can store. If you’ve reached your limit, you won’t be able to send or receive any more text messages until you delete some old messages.
  • Check your phone’s date and time settings. If your phone’s date and time are incorrect, it may cause problems with text messaging. Make sure your date and time settings are set to automatic.
  • Check for any messaging app updates. If there are any updates available for your messaging app, install them. App updates often include bug fixes and performance improvements.
  • Try sending a test text message to yourself. This can help you determine if the problem is with your phone, your SIM card, or the T-Mobile network.

Here are some additional considerations to keep in mind:

Is the issue with sending or receiving text messages occurring with all contacts, or is it specific to particular individuals or groups?

Is the problem related to different types of text messages, including SMS, MMS, or group messages, or is it affecting all message types?

Does the issue manifest on both Wi-Fi and cellular data, or is it limited to one of these connectivity options?

Have you recently made any alterations to your phone’s settings, such as installing new apps or adjusting messaging app preferences?
