I have my APN settings set up as such: APN: sp.koodo.com Proxy server: Port: Username: Password: Server: MMSC: http://aliasredirect.net/proxy/koodo/mmsc Proxy server: 74.49.0.18 Port: 80 MCC : 302 MNC : 220 APN type : My data works, and I can send and receive calls fine, however, I can only send and receive texts to Telus customers (I don't know anyone on Koodo, but it will probably work), but any other providers don't receive my texts and I don't receiver theirs. What am I doing wrong?

SMs should work try unplugging the battery and sim card. Try sending a text to yourself after you do this and let us know what happens.

Did you happen to port your number to Koodo by any chance?
I can't unplug the battery, it's not removable, but I have rebooted a number of times and kept the phone off for about 10 mins, I'll try removing the sim and see what happens. I did port my number to Koodo from Petro Canada Mobile last night.
I text myself, and I receive it instantly.

Ok so the sending and receiving works! maybe It's Telus network?try sending a text to a koodo customer?
I don't know any koodo customers. But I'm assuming since it works with my friend who has Telus, no matter what settings i have input, then it would work with koodo, no?

So I guess I'll have to wait it out and see what happens. Thanks guys.

Solved. Turns out it did, in fact, need more time to transfer over since I got it activated late in the day. For reference if anyone finds this thread in the future: From 6:30pm, took until around 2:00pm the next day.
