SMS Text Corrupted

Before, I never had a problem with SMS in Russian language with Fido, Public Mobile and Koodo. Now, I came back to Public Mobile and when sending SMS in Russian I would get a warning "Message maybe corrupted on recipient device. Change input mode to automatic." There is no such settings on my phone! Recipients see only question marks. I receive SMS in Russian and text displays correctly.

Could this be a problem with SIM not provisioned correctly?

Re: SMS Text Corrupted

 @LEGO : Did you google that message? Is your phone rooted? Is it the stock messenger app? What make/model/submodel and OS version is it?

I googled it and it seems known.

@LEGO 

Maybe try rebooting phone.  Network reset of phone. Which model phone? Maybe check your messaging app for language options.

 

If possible, try the SIM card in another working phone.  That would help determine whether hardware setup issue or Public mobile service problem.

Re: SMS Text Corrupted

I have custom ROM on my phone and sometimes you have to dig for proper setting. I'm in the rush and have no time to Google the problem... At least someone received the "Solution" as a reward.
