I've been travelling up in Northern Nunavut in Pond Inlet. My phone picked up the local network here and calls and data have worked great. I have noticed that plain text messages don't seem to come in time though. Occasionally they come a few days later. This is pretty useless for 2 factor authentication. I have no problems with data based messaging systems.
I've been told that this is a known Rogers/Fido problem that doesn't happen with other providers - but can't find anything online. Is this a thing? Is there a fix of some sort? I'd like to have a working text-message-capable phone for the next time I return.

Hi there @BBBB123 , I would suggest that you contact Fido technical support to see if you can solve your issue together. I used to have intermittent problems with my Samsung s10e and I solved it by installing Google Messages and turning on chat in the settings. Don't know if it will work for you but it's worth a try.
