I just got a second phone number with koodo and cannot receive texts from people with an iPhone. I can send and receive from/to non Apple and my texts mostly show up on other people's iphones but no texts from iPhones come to my phone.
The number is New to me and I have never linked it to imessage.
I've tried to call koodo but the number just says they have high call volume and hangs up.
Any ideas???

Maybe double check that it didn't link or that it's routing via messages on a mac?

I wonder if the number was formerly attached to someone’s iMessage account, and not removed?

So upon further investigation. The problem is not specific to iPhones but just random phones. I sent txt to several friends and some were received while others werent. Bothiphone and non iPhone users on multiple providers. Also the line goes straight to voicemail when I call it.

Additionally, during the entire operating hours, 186699koodo says they have high call volume and then hangs up on me. *611 is busy and after hours I get thru but was on hold for over an hour before being disconnected. How can you have high call volumes when they're not answering the phone??
