LG Gossip texting issues

I'm a participant level 1

So I've had a bunch of problems with the texting features on my LG Gossip lately -- almost all of the messages I receive say (missing) (missing) (missing) and then the last few letters of the text, and I don't seem to "receive" these texts either - my phone lights up, and then fades again without a new text message notification ...this, among a host of other glitches, makes me want to ditch Fido entirely for carrying a bunch of cracked phones I keep getting stuck with with the exception of the smartphones that come with either a hefty hefty price tag or contract ... right, I started ranting -- so are there any explanations/solutions out there?

You should try deleting all the messages, removing the battery, SIM card, and memory card.  Leave the phone for a few minutes with everything removed and then re-insert everything.  If that does not work you can also try restoring the factory settings.
