In another 2 months I will be free from my current contract and I am very keen with port my number to skinny - I have been using a skinny SIM in my backup phone and it has never failed me. The only thing holding me back is the ASB netcode problem, I am aware that it has not been solved since the network was launched back in.....quite a long time. Any ETA on getting it sorted?

Hi

Being Geekzone here is the techy answer Laughing There are around 30 ASP's who offer short code services and we have been working with them individually to get them to connect to Skinny. 

We have a number of these going and worked through the list using Pareto's principle - we got 80% of the most commonly used codes working by hooking up the 20% of ASP's that provide them.

We are currently working with the ASP that ASB use and have the VPN connected for them.  We now need them to configure their app servers to start sending traffic through SMPP to Skinny.  Although we are working closely with them it is out of our direct control on the timing, but I hope that it will be going before your contract expires.  Don't sign another one!!  Mrs LivingSkinny is also very keen to get this working so I am under pressure to get it fixed.

cheers

Paul.
