N8 Not receiving SMS? Turn off, turn on and received with post time stamp...?

[ Edited ]

Strange problem this one...

 

My N8 has suddenly decided to stop receiving SMS messages... Until you turn the handset off, then back on (Note not an 8 seconds, buzz 3 times reset) at which time they flood through...

 

The strange thing is unlike when your phone has been turned off and then on and all of the messages come in time stamped as being "xx:xx" for when you turned it on these have times as if they have come in but not actually shown as being received... :-|

 

Probably worth saying that i currently have 5606 messages in my inbox...

 

Any ideas? I have already re-installed software version 022.014 and really don't want to resort to a *#7370# reset :smileysad:

Your problem is the 5606 messages.
So either back them upon the ovi suite or delete them,also check the sub folders and do the same..

Did you try SYNC with OVI Suite before deleting ? It could have preserved your lifes history...
