I recently replaced my 15 year old SIM with a newer SIM (at the tmobile store) and since then I’ve been unable to receive any SMS. Sending SMS works fine, calling works fine, Data & LTE works fine.
Any idea on how to resolve the issue of not receiving SMS will be greatly appreciated. I rely on SMS a lot and it kinda sucks that it’s broken.

Ok, so the issue has been resolved.
For my case, the way to resolve it was to insert the SIM into a T-mobile authorized device (the expert from the store had one). Once the SIM was inserted and initialized using a T-mobile device, all the messaging started pouring in.
After this, moving the SIM back to my unlocked device got the SMS working as expected.
I’m able to send and receive messages.
Hopefully someone finds this useful.
