Same here. Is there any solution to this problem?
I just did, and it works. I could also read messages I didn't receive days ago. They appeared in Pulse sms.
I have the same issue, 7.1.2 on Play in Poland. I tried several apps, Pulse SMS among others, and the one that seems to finally work around the issue is Ghostly. A bit old but only this one didn't fail in my tests. Although it can only receive SMS, then you can choose to move it to inbox.
TIP: how to test if your current SMS app receives all the messages? Just log in to few services where you have SMS configured as 2nd factor authentication. Gmail, Facebook, Twitter...
There seems to be lot of similar discussions on Android forums where Nexus and Pixel phone users facing similar issues so problem is most probably related Google's SMS app and 7.1.x releases.
Same problem here, business phone, very annoying. Unreliable when receiving sms, losing about 20-25% of all texts. Also drops the BT connection at random, always in connection with a complete signal loss/system services reset/crash. To me it seems like the entire RF crashes, resetting this part of the phone and losing information (like texts and BT settings, maybe more) in the process. Returned to dealer for repair. Sad - otherwise quite a great phone!
When Pixels and Nexuses had the same problem, Google claimed they'd fix it with the November security update. I've not been able to test that yet, but the update is now available (Settings --> About phone --> System update --> Check for update). Would be interested to know if this helps anyone.
Same here on my Nokia 5 after upgrading to 7.1.2. Installing November security update, so hope it will help. Will let you all know.
