Issue with Photon 4G Not Receiving Texts

Re: Issue with Photon 4G Not Receiving Texts

Im on my 2nd Photon, the 1st I wanted to throw it out the window. I dont received alerts along the top notification bar, I dont receive texts from certain people, my emails dont sync to my settings, sometimes my phone doesnt even ring.

There's never been a phone that's been more of a downright disaster for text messaging than the Photon.  The employees on the Sprint and Motorola forums aren't allowed to admit it but they know there's a defect with this phone and it probably can't be fixed.

Thank you for posting your observations... I just experienced this problem for the past weekend, and it seems to have only affected sms from apple devices, but the reboot also seemed to resolve the issue for now.  I didn't have the WiFi enabled at any time, so I cannot say that's the common thread, but I have also recently experienced my data just randomly turning itself off, so I suggest it's prolly a phone-to-network interface issue of some sort.
