    -Had jailbroken phone 3.1.2 using Blackra1n.
    -Downloaded an SMS alternative through Cydia --- (didn't like it) uninstalled it.
    -Native messenger no longer working -- I can compose a message and send it but it will not be received and I do not receive any messages.
    - Forgot which app I downloaded from Cydia
    - I restored iphone to Firmware 3.1.2
    However, the native messenger still does not work (it it turned on in general settings). Looking for any suggestions. Seems like even with a restore there is residual code left over from jailbreak process??? Should I upgrade to 4.0?? How to completely wipe phone to original factory settings?

    Thanks.

    Do a restore but don't sync from back up. That should fix your issue.

    Then do a restore in iTunes to 4.0. That should fix the issue. If not, take it to apple for an exchange if u still have warranty left.

    I upgraded from 3.1.2 to 4.01 and still no luck with messenger app working. All the other apps work. Its not a hardware issue. I still have residual code left behind from jailbreak (I think??). Any other help would be greatly appreciated.

    If u restored and didn't sync from backup then there isn't any jailbreak info on the phone. Ur best bet is to take it to Apple for an exchange v

    Figured it out. A friend of mine said to call AT&T. They had accidentally removed texting from our family plan. Now its working -- but cant easily jailbreak on 4.01.
