Hi I just got a Koodo sim and service today... I tried texting two friends in the states from my phone. One friend didn't get my text and the other received but can not reply. Do I not get messaging to the states and mexico? The store associate said yes to and from states, just not call

You have unlimited texting to the world.

Double check the number you're texting and make sure it's correct. If your friend can't text you back that may have something to do on their end.

Chad is right. Plus keep in mind you may be able to text from your phone free of charge, they may be charged for receiving or texting back to you so they may have to check with their service provider as well.

Both of you have to route the texts properly when sending international texts. The code for the US is the same as Canada (+1). The code for Mexico is +52.
