Go into Options > Security Options > Firewall and see if anything is checked. It sounds like you have text messages blocked and have made an exception for contacts. Just uncheck anything in Firewall.

If that's not it, you'll have to call Koodo and speak to tech support. It may be something on their end.

Okay thanks for the advice!

In firewall, nothing is checked, I'll call Koodo and see what's up. :D

You can also try pulling the battery while the BB is turned on. This forces a reset but doesn't clear any of your data. Leave the battery our for 30 seconds to a minute before reinstalling it and allowing it to reboot.
