"so far" or "yet"
is there any difference in tone between the uses of yet and so far?
As in: "I haven't received any messages so far/yet."
Re: "so far" or "yet"
In your example, they mean the same thing.

And it shows up in the idiom yet again, which, like once again, implies repeated attempts:
-I checked for messages yet again.
And finally, there's the yet that expresses an expectation of completion (the opposite of already, the expectation of incompletion):
-Are we there yet?
-Are you done yet?
Yes. We're there and we're done.
