    My messaging stopped working yesterday. I'm not getting notifications of new texts and when I open messaging, it sends me to the store. Almost like my phone cant find the right app.

    Oddly, I can still send txts using Cortana.

    I've reset, pulled the battery out, double checked my notification settings, made sure messaging was my default and not skype. Out of ideas besides a hard reset.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Check to see if your SMS center number is correct (confirm your cellular service provider): Messaging Settings>Change more settings for Messaging>SIM1

    Also, ask your cellular service provider if they are doing any network upgrades in your area. I have T-Mobile and several months ago they were upgrading the tower that covered my neighborhood and messaging/calls would not work correctly unless I manually switched my L950XL to connect to 2G.

    Gave that a shot DrChucky. Everything was in order. Not working.

    Any other ideas?
