You don't have to add Koodo as a contact. In the "to" field, all you have to put is 5242.

Not yet. Ahmad says to put 5242 in the "To" field. I don't have a "To" fiend in hangouts

Try using the Messages App. Hangouts is a membership-based messaging service, and appears not to accept short codes such as 5242.

It should already be installed. Every phone comes with a base SMS app.
I'm flying to Jamaica tonight. If I text 30TEXT to 5242 now, is the service active right away?
