Can't receive SMS with Whatsapp installed/logged in

    I've found a weird bug with my device. I'm using a ZTE Axon 7 with DIGITS. Recently, tmo_chris helped with the issue of no incoming SMS shows up on the phone here.

     

    I recently installed Whatsapp. The app took a while to confirm my phone number via SMS. After it finally initialized after I had to restart my phone, I can no longer receive any incoming SMS.

     

    I get incoming SMS to my Gear S2 with 3G turned on just fine. But none of those same texts would show up on my phone.

     

    Is anyone else able to reproduce this issue? It may not even be DIGITS related, but this certainly wasn't a problem before.
