Text messages travelling up north

I'm a participant level 1
I'm a participant level 1


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.
