Hello guys,

I have a Samsung Galaxy s1896 (Rogers) unlocked. I am on the prepaid $15 unlimited messaging, but my problem is I am unable to send out text messages. I can receive messages, send out/receive calls, but when I send a text message it fails. I have 3G, and signal has full bars. For the APN, I did the below...

Name: Koodo
APN: sp.koodo.com
Proxy: Leave blank
Port: Leave blank
Username: Leave blank
Password: Leave blank
Server: Leave blank
MMSC: http://aliasredirect.net/proxy/koodo/...
MMSC proxy: 74.49.0.18
MMS port: 80
MCC: 302
MNC: 220
Authentication type: Leave blank
APN type: Leave blank

So I'm not sure why my phone is unable to send out messages using the koodo sim card. Can any one help please? Help is much appreciated.

It seems to be a network problem with some Galaxy phones. Try this out:

Paul's fix of turning off LTE seems to have helped. Leave the APN alone if everything else is functioning.

Thanks. Unfortunately, the only option I have for network mode is GSM/WCDMA. I tried both as "only", but no luck...

Hey Jaden,

If you're still unable to send messages, you can check that your Text Message Service Centre number is set to +16475800172.

You should be able to find it by launching your Messaging App then hitting the menu button and selecting "Settings."

If that doesn't work, you can call up our Tech Support team at 1-866-995-6636 from a landline for more assistance.

Have a great day!
