My texts are sending and being received, but I'm not receiving any from others


My texts are sending and being received, but I'm not receiving any from others. I'm using a Galaxy S3 with Android 4.4.2. I've tried using the default messaging app and Messenger for SMS, but neither are showing the replies.

My service is the Koodo Prepaid, 15$/Month Base plan.

Restart your phone. Reseat your Sim card.

I'll try with the sim card, thanks.

The calling and data did work before though.

What happens if you try sending a message to yourself?

What I sent shows up as a reply. That's how it should be, right?

You should see it twice.  Once as a sent and once as a reply

Yeah, exactly. That's what I meant.

Which providers are the other people texting you with?

If you received the message you sent yourself then you are definitely able to receive messages. There is nothing wrong with your account or your phone. Are you sure people are using your full 10.gift number when messaging you ?

One is Rogers, the other I'm not sure.

They're just replying to my text. I don't really see how they could be sending it to the wrong number 😕

IIRC, the s3 also has a built in spam filter option for sms. Check to make sure the messages aren't ending up there. (I believe you can access the spam folder by pressing the menu button while in the messaging app.)

There are no messages in Spam

Antoine did you use your phone for texting before without any problem or it is just first time?

I did, except it was with Sugar Mobile, and I had to use their app when texting.

Great question Jan.

This means it could be a porting issue.  
Please send Koodo a private message via Facebook or twitter and they can look into your port and why you are not receiving text messages

Try installing another messaging app (ex. chomp sms, textra, etc) and see if that works
I tried, it does the same thing. It seems like my messages don't send either now. 
The best theory would be that I just have bad reception (I am out of town and reception is meh), except that when calling it works perfectly.

If calling works perfectly you should not have problem with texting.

It's what I would think.
Hmm, it seems to depend on the person if they receive it or not. Some people seem to receive my texts, others no. I any case, I never receive their replies.
New development: I have tried texting 7 people. 4 of them received it, but I didn't get their reply. The others didn't receive my message and I couldn't receive their texts either.
Those four people who received my texts are all with Rogers, and the others are not.
