Koodo does not have an agreement with O2. If you look at the post below me, it shows what agreements Koodo has with the providers in Ireland. Since Koodo does not have an agreement with O2, there's no guarantee that the texting will work nor is there any troubleshooting that can be done.

If you went to the koodo site you can find out if they have agreements with the local cellphone company you are trying to text to.

They show 3 companies. If yours is not one of them then you can't text.
