Cannot send SMS via Fizz network. Why ?

Since this past Thursday, I cannot send any texts (SMS) to my contacts via Messages (Android). However, my contacts can send me texts, but how can FIZZ be of use if I cannot send texts to my friends?

Can you make and/or receive calls? Can you receive texts?

In the settings part of your texting app, check to make sure the phone number for the SMS service centre is listed as +14385200092. If it is, and other parts of your service are working, you'll have to contact Fizz customer service to have them look into it from their side of things.

Hey Val,


I could be wrong but you might have an APN issue.


Have you the below settings correctly configured:


Fizz APN settings are: APN:




MMS proxy:


MMS port: 80


APN type: default,mms,supl


Other fields should be filled by default; if empty, they are not mandatory.


Steps to follow for configuring the APN can vary from one phone to another. example:


Android: Settings → Connections → Mobile networks → Access Point Names → APN
