Hi Nick,

If I understand correctly you are using an Android device. Turn the phone off and take out the battery (if possible) as well as the SIM card and let it sit for a few minutes. Reassemble the phone and see if it works then. If it does not, make sure you are using the Koodo network and not another one by mistake.

Let me know if you get it working or need further asistance.

While iMessage is turned off, 'Send as SMS' should be enabled under Settings/Messages (iPhone).

Hey Nick,

If you used to have an iPhone and used iMessage in the past, you can follow Rikkster's suggestion (if you still have the phone) or use this link: to deregister iMessage.

Hope this helps!
