Unable to receive texts Galaxy A5

Scout
Hi. I just upgraded from Galaxy S6 to a Galaxy A5 today and cannot receive texts.
I can make calls, send texts and receive calls but definitely not getting texts.
In car phone warehouse, they used the smart switch app instore to transfer my details, everything except my apps which I said I'd sort myself.
I first noticed that I wasn't getting texts when trying and failing to obtain pin details via sms for Facebook and WhatsApp login on new phone. I've since tried sending a text to myself and have asked two friends to send me texts too, one has android and the other an iPhone and I have not received anything.
Please advise. Thanks.

I can confirm this problem, SMS are not being delivered in Cork. Verified on an iPhone 7 and a Huawei P9, with Apple and Uber servers trying to deliver authentication SMS. Mobile-to-mobile SMS are also not delivered. Not an Android-specific problem.
