iPhone 4 can send text's but doesn't receive help

For the past few days at home my iPhone 4 has been not receiving any texts or phone calls and yet if i send a text or phone call suddenly a big pile up of texts and missed calls come through. After making a text phone call its almost as if connection is reestablished and i can then receive messages and calls as normal once again but after a few hours it returns again.
My iPhone has been showing up as having signal the whole time and yet when i tried phoning from my landline it went through to answer machine. Im completely lost by this.

My iphone 4 can't call or text receive calls and texts

Ive tried restoring it to factory settings, Ive already went through the troubleshoot section - nothing works! My sim card works on other phones perfectly fine (T-Mobile but it says EE)..



What should I do?


Ive tried resetting everything.

Ive tried repositioning the sim card.

Ive tried putting the T-Mobile sim card into another phone and it works.

Ive done a factory restore by putting it into the DFU settings and then restoring it via itunes.



When I try to call from the iphone, it goes *BEEP BEEP BEEP* Call Ended.


When someone tries to call my iphone, it goes Im sorry, calls are currently not being connected to this number.



When someone sends a text to the iphone, the iphone doesnt receive it.




It is on IOS 6.0.1. Not jailbroken or unlocked. Its with T-Mobile. This is my White iPhone 4 16gb.



The T-Mobile sim card works on other phones, but not on the iPhone.


The iPhone also shows a full 5 bar connection.



Whats going on How can I fix this Can somebody please help me =/

Can I use 67 with a number I receive in a text

I frequently receive phone numbers in texts that I need to call.  On my older Droid, I could tap the number, then add *67 to the front of the number before dialing it.  Or, if I recognized that the phone operator had inputed our area code incorrectly I could change just that before dialing.  Is there any way to do that on my new IPhone 5?

Can receive text msgs but cannot send

A few days ago I began to be unable to send text msgs. Using iPhone 3G, it appears that the send button is dithered greyed out. I tap it but nothing happens. I can email, and obviously type text online (as here) but cannot send text. I deleted MSG history, cleared cache, cleared recent calls, cleared email history to no avail. I can receive text just dandy but cannot send. Can anyone shed some light here or do I go see the geniuses at the store and get a new phone. ( it seems every time I have a phone problem like this, they cant fix it they just give me another phone) Would really like to not have to go to the store. Thanks in advance for anyones help!

I receive notifications of new texts but I can't find my text messages in my iphone 4 inbox

Ever since I synchronized my iphone 4 with my itunes I cant find my text messages in my inbox. I receive notifications that I have new text messages but when I unlock my phone there are no red bubbles on the messages icon and my inbox is blank. I have tried resetting my iphone and turning it on and off I have also updated it but nothing helps. I open my messages inbox and its competely blank no record of received or sent messages. When I first synced my iphone I restored it but with my ipod info Idk if this is a problem related to this or just that randomly happened. I can send texts and I guess I can receive them but the problem is that they are not in my inbox and I really dont know whats going on. Did this ever happen to anybody else ?

Cannot receive Internaltional Text messages with new software 3.0.1 release

Hey there, my husband is currently in England and hes been texting me while hes away. I can send him text message, but not get any from him.
I downloaded the latest iPhone software 3.0.1 release on Saturday evening and since then.... Ive got nothing. Husband called his carrier (we have different carriers) and they report all is fine on his end. I called AT&T and they say all is fine on my end. They even sent an network update to the phone. I powered it down a few times, but no text messages after the phone is turned back on.
I have no problems sending and receiving domestic text messages.
Anyone else having this issue to? What was the fix, if any?
Thanks in advance.

When I receive text messages my phone does not play a tone

When I receive text messages my phone does not play a tone it only vibrates however my wifes phone with the exact same settings as mine plays the tone when a text message is received. 

My iphone4 is extremely tempremental when deciding to vibrate when I receive a text

IPhone4 Version 4.3.3 (8J2)


I recieve a text and sometimes my phone will vibrate like buzz buzz.

Sometimes itll vibrate once, or three times or half a vibrate..very messed up.

Sometimes it wont vibrate at all..the screen will light up and thats it.

Sometimes the screen will sort of just flash without vibrating or staying lit up.


This all seems to have happened after I updated.

I want to take my phone o an apple store and ask them, but how do I prove the above? :/

Recently unable to consistenly send receive phone calls or text messages

About a month ago I stopped getting consistent service for my iPhone 3GS.  Ive spoken to my carrier and they insist its the phone.  Ive taken the phone to an Apple store and they insist the phone is fine.  Ive gone back and forth between the two, but am out of ideas.  Ive gone so far as to restore my iPhone, but Im still having service issues.  Its only at home and at work where Im no longer able to get any service.


Ive also had some issue with the phone suddenly powering itself down where the apple symbol is displayed on the screen and Im not able to turn it off or on until it seems to reset itself.  I mentioned this issue to the Apple Genius when I took it in and they still insisted there was nothing coming up when they plugged it into their diagnositc program.


My carriers suggestion is to upgrade the phone and sign another 3 year contract (in other words, spend more money with them).  Hubbys iPhone 4 seems to work fine at home and has no network issues.  I know I have an old phone and Im wondering if they really do degrade like the carrier insists?  Its no longer under warranty, so it would be cheaper to upgrade with the carrier, unless its their network at fault, in which case a new phone wont solve the problem.


Any thoughts or suggestions on what the problem could be?  Do you think the phones just dying?

While sending a text if i receive one the message won't send i can't send messages for a few seconds

When i send a text, the white bar on the top says sending, but if i receive a text before its about halfway full the phone wont send the message at all. Then i have to wait about 30 seconds for that one to fail, copy and paste that message, send it again, and then continue on. It happens about 100 times a day and is getting very annoying. i use a white iphone 4, 32GB, for verizon.
