Can you not read them or are you not receiving them?
Is this with all messages or just ones from other iphones?

Then they arrive at your phone but are unreadable for some reason?

Make sure the people that are sending you text have the option "Sens as SMS" when iMessage is not available. I guess you're not on wifi/data 24h/24h. Therefore, if your friends don't have this option enabled, won't be able to reach you. Also, is this only iMessage related or it applies to all texts?

If the answer to Ahmad's question is yes, promptly dispose of it and buy a new phone.

The Ace had issues with sending/receiving texts when Packet Data was turned on. (Although you need packet data on to receive/send MMS texts, so the issu was that you had to alternate every single time)

I owned the ace myself, and working in tech support I heard this issue described many times. It affected SENDING only. Messages could be received just fine.
