    Randomly my phone decided to not receive text messages, it does most of the time, but randomly decided not to. I was wondering if anyone else has been experiencing this lately. I have a 3Gs 3.1.2 jailbroken.

    I'm actually experiencing the same problem. My iPhone is also jailbroken via blackra1n.

    Anyone experiencing this problem who has NOT jailbroken their iPhone? I'm curious to know this before restoring my iPhone.

    I experienced this a couple of days ago. This was because i restored my sms.db from a previous jailbreak. In order to fix this problem, you either need to delete the SMS folder at /private/var/mobile/library or you could try setting all permissions in the SMS folder, especially the sms.db file to 777.

    This solution worked for me

    BTW i'm jailbroken on 3.1.2

    I would do two things before going through the hassle of restoring.

    1. Go to settings>general>reset>reset networking settings. Give that a shot first.

    2. Get your sim card replaced.

    If you've done those two things and it still is doing it, then sure, restore it.
