Not receiving text messages from one person when roaming


When traveling in France with my Samsung s6 (this also happened with my s4) I can send and receive messages from everyone (both canadian and french numbers) but I can't receive messages from my fiancé. My fiancé uses a french number from Orange when he is there and he has also changed phones but the problem persists. I use the international data text and minutes plan when I am over there.

Hello Christine, 

What phone does he have? Also, when dealing a number from France to Canada, you need to dial differently then form CANada to France. 

00 + 1 + AREA + PHONE#

He currently uses a Huawei P9. I do dial differently when I am over there. I can receive texts from other French numbers just not from his.
