How to make sms work?

For more than a month my SMS are not working. At first I wasn't able to send them, now I even can't receive them. As many online applications are using two-factor authentication with SMS it becomes quite critical issue.
So far I tried:

  • at least 10 times to manually reset APN settings (https://fizz.ca/en/faq/what-are-fizz-network-settings-apn)
  • reinsert sim card
  • switch to manual network selection, then back to automatic.
  • Nothing of that worked. Maybe I should disable SMS and then enable them again in my Fizz account page?

The APN is needed only for the MMS and internet
Did you try to contact the support? Since you try everything, the only thing left is to try the SIM in a different phone

Hi Pavel! Thanks for your question.
I think there is a problem in synchronisation of your Fizz account plan and Fizz Database, if you cannot sent and after cannot send/received.
In your case i suggest you to contact directly fizz by clicking the green chat bubble available in your account dashboard or by chatting with a fizz rep on facebook under the name "Fizz".

It's been a pleasure to assist you today. Have a nice day! :)
If you have any further question, ask me!
Don't forget to mark my answer as the best!
