iPhone 3G SMS Text Not Working

After 7‑hours of hard work (stand­ing in-line and being back at my pad from Apple Store Emeryville), the SMS Tex­ting fea­ture on my iPhone 3G does­n’t seem to work. At first, I thought it was an iPhone 3G issue.

Since open­ing the box, and acti­vat­ing ate with Genius Hugh’s help, it has­n’t been shut­down at all. So I tried re-pow­er­ing it think­ing that it might solve the issue and have SMS updat­ed and turned on. That did­n’t work.

The next step I then took was to call 611 and fil­tered on to iPhone sup­port. After about 30-min­utes of hold time I was final­ly able to get through and talk to a tech. Sec­onds lat­er, I was told that it pos­si­bly is on AT&T’s side and was trans­ferred to the AT&T After-hours Sup­port Line 866–801-3600

Please wait…

That’s the first thing that I got from an auto­mat­ed answer­ing machine Op (as if I haven’t wait­ed enough). Any­ways, the tech sup­port per­son was able to review it and it seems that the SMS plan acti­va­tion nev­er made it, even though it says I have/am on for the 1500 month­ly plan.

That did it regard­less. So, I hope this helps out peo­ple who hap­pen to be in the same boat.
