New phone,  can't send or receive SMS - "Message Blocking is Active"

ramaynard777

    Switched from ATT to T-Mobile, T-Mobile gave me a new Sim Card. 3 days later my new phone came in the mail. I put in the sim card. Set up the phone. Everything works, I can make phone calls, etc. T-Mobile says my line is active and they "refreshed" it. I can send and receive iMessages.

     

    However - I could not receive group messages, so I "reset network settings" - and that problem got fixed.

     

    But now I notice I can not send or receive SMS  (any non iMessage) messages. I get a "message blocking is active" message, and so do the people trying to send me messages (unless it's an iMessage).

     

    T-Mobile says they do not have message blocking turned on.

     

    Any ideas?

     

    Note: Yes, SMS messaging is turned on, on my iPhone 8 plus. Yes, I've rebooted. Yes, I've removed the sim and reinserted it. Yes, I've reset network settings.

     

    Still no worky.
