Re: MessageBank® – Everything you need to know

I'm having this problem as well.

Customer service didn't find any problems with my account, and I have done basic trouble shooting (taking sim out, turning off/on).

Re: MessageBank® – Everything you need to know

All fixed! 

After doing basic trouble shooting, I contacted the livechat (via a link from another forum post  , not the chatbot on the mainpage). They were able to take a better look at my messagebank set-up, and let me know it can take up to 24 hrs for their changes to take effect.


It takes some time for them to find the problem (I think it is more complicated than it seems), but was totally painless for me. So if you've already tried contacting them, give it another go when you have time to spare.
