Hey everyone, i'm new here and i just signed up so i could get help with this problem with my iPhone. I upgraded to iOS 5 yesterday and ive noticed that ever since i have not received any messages. I tried sending a message from my girlfriends phone and i did not receive it. i tried from one of my coworkers phones and i didnt get that either. I restarted my phone and when i opened back up the messaging app, it says "Your SMS mailbox is full. New messages cannot be received until you delete some messages." I am no where near reaching my storage capacity. I deleted a bunch of messages and turned it on and off and I was still unable to receive text messages. Im trying to stay away from restoring it because it takes 4 hours to back up... Help?
