Freedom/Wind Mobile Texting Error Message, but can Talk

Little Weed had a problem with his Google Pixel and Freedom Mobile. While he could call people he could not text, and received an error message “Can’t send message with freedom, error 8”.

We went to the Wind store and this is what the guy did. It did take a couple of seconds to kick in:

settings > network and internet > mobile network -> advanced > access point names > … (top right corner) > reset to default

Sim card was fine. I’m glad the guy knew his stuff.
