    Can't recieve text messages

    I have a rooted fascinate and did the firmware update what I thought was successfully. Now I cant receive texts and sending them is funny to. Also root explorer does not have permissions anymore and super user seems to not affect the applications. Any thoughts where I should start? Did I lose the root after the firmware?
