Incoming texts suddenly stopped coming in: Known issue?

As of around noon of Dec. 17, I stopped receiving incoming text messages. My outgoing messages are being received normally. Is this a known issue, or a problem isolated to me?

[I ran through all the suggested resolutions (reboot, checked network settings, disconnected from network and set auto-find networks, etc). Yes, I have a data plan and texts were working perfectly fine until they weren't.]

If you have the correct APN setting below than you should contact fizz, some users have issues with SMS / MMS

MMSC: http://mms.mobile.bm

MMS port: 80

APN type: default,mms,supl

The data plan and APN should only be necessary for MMS messages, not regular texting. I don't think it's a network-wide problem because texting worked for me today. I'm guessing most everyone else too or there would be a long thread on it already.

I have the same problem. I can send texts and MMS just fine, but can't receive them.

APN settings have absolutely nothing to do with SMS by the way, only data and MMS.

Weird issue. I had MMS problem when I don't have data. SMS is always working. Plug sim card in different phone and try ?

A few people were complaining of the same issue today. Could be a system bug the same way some users were affected differently by the data network speed.

I had that problem when I first signed up to Fizz two weeks ago and it took a pile of network resets, APN settings, system reboots before it worked.

Unfortunately, none of the suggested resolutions has worked. The issue is currently with tech support, but that seems to be a slow-going process.

Still no response from the Fizz tech support team on this, but I got texts partially working by piecing together clues from other people's solutions. Should anyone else be led here looking for a fix for no incoming text messages, this is what I did.

Deleted all APN info, wiped data and wireless cache, turned phone off for ten minutes.
Set up Fizz APN, but set the option to let me choose my network. I had no option for Fizz EXT, as other has suggested I try. Instead I connected to Rogers Wireless. Rebooted.

On reboot, the phone first said I had no network connection. After a minute or so, it connected to Fizz EXT. My old SMS messages began coming in, but I couldn't connect to LTE. I tried switching to the Fizz network, but I stopped getting texts again, so I went back to Fizz EXT via Rogers Wireless.

After a day, I tired again to let the phone automatically choose the network, it connected to Fizz, and I now have incoming SMS and LTE.

What I don't have is MMS, incoming or outgoing.
