    I just picked up a black 16GB iPhone this afternoon. I got a text message saying I could now receive calls. I can send calls, send texts, and receive calls, but I can't receive text messages. Is this normal? I know it might take a bit to be fully activated, but doesn't that text I got mean I'm done with the activation?

    Do you have texting on your plane? I just got mine all setup about 2 weeks ago and after I started getting calls I had everything working fine.

    Have you tried calling AT&T to verify the account is fully active? That'd be the best place to start.

    Started getting texts late last night. Guess the texts just took longer to port over than calls.
