I recently bought an unlocked phone. Its an android smartphone.

I am able to make calls, send and recieve photo messages, but simple text messages will NOT send. I went through and manually configured the APN with koodo settings. What am i doing wrong???

Just now I put the sim back in my koodo Samsung evergreen and it is now not sending text messages.....

It should work. Sounds like the sim card may be damaged

open the messaging app
tap the menu button
select settings
make sure the messaging center is set to +16475800172
this is the number through wihch all koodo sms messages are relayed. if it's wrong, they won't send.

Take the sim card out then restart the phone. after the phone boots then put the sim card back in.
