I recently bought a Factory unlocked iPhone 5 in USA and got a nano-SIM card from my Indian carrier (Airtel).


Everything works fine, except that I am not able to receive any SMS (though i can send SMS). I am on iOS 6.0.2.


I called Apple care, they just asked me to do Factory Reset, without any help.


Anyone facing similar issues? Any solutions pls?
