Hi there Serena... Check if you have the correct APN settings, if not, update them and your phone should work...

i guess that you also tried to power cycle your phone, and you checked that the right apn is selected (you should also see the apn of the OSP). At this point you have to call the tech support line by dialing *611 and chosing the option 5. They will perform a reset on your mms profil

To steal a line from 'The IT Crowd', "Have you tried turning it off and back on again?"

Turn your phone off, wait few seconds, turn it back on, if it resolved problem, if not pull out Battery/SIM wait 1 minute, put back SIM/Battery and try again, if not working, select Koodo APN, turn Data on, try browser if you can browse google, if not working check your messaging centre number +16475800172 and try again
