Asrafrate: Ooohh interesting? How does this work?


The short story is that Google and their international service provider for SMS don't particularly care about NZ, and route for cheap. So, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

I have tried to contact them to talk about it, but never received a reply.

*Shrug* Yeah, well, to be honest i would have been shocked if I had. But I couldn't come on here and honestly say I had done everything I could without attempting to talk to them. Faxed their Sydney office on 2degrees letterhead and everything.
