    I have a new cycling GPS (bike computer) that can send a text message to a contact if I crash. Works great, I've tested it and it sends and the text messages are received on several different cell phones in our family, Andrioid, Z10, on different Canadian carriers. However, my wife's Q5 does not receive the text message. It is on Fido and our other Fido phone can receive the texts. My Z10 on Bell also receives the texts. Son's Android phone on Fido does receive the texts. We use the Q5 to text others, it's just this one text that it can't receive. I've checked all the settings and ensured that the Q5's settings match the settings on my Z10.
    I'm stuck and can't determine why the Q5 can't receive these text messages. I've called the cell company, they were no help.
    The text message comes in to my Z10 as +44 7624815487. Is that some sort of international text number, it's not a normal looking Canadian cell number.

    Pretty sure +44 is UK, what app is this you're trying to activate?

    I know I'm poking a dead thread, but if this is the cycling computer that is made by the same guys that do the SPOT Satellite messaging, their texts come through from Ireland.

    What I had to do was:

    Open Hub (Swipe bottom, then right)
    Touch three dot icon in lower left corner.
    Touch Settings.
    Touch Text messages
    Touch Reject Advertisements, set to off.

    For whatever reason this worked for me.
