Vodafone is passing on to the end user what is getting passed from Twitter

Vodafone are only the postie to deliver the SMS we don't decide on the content

I don't have any examples but have seen other people having an opposite issue where when they send a SMS to twitter it changes from a @ symbol to an ! Or ยก

But surely some traces could be put in place to find out if this is a handset problem or a source problem (or even an unintented translation going inside Vodafone's systems) to them advise customers on how to get this fixed (i.e. fix handset settings, contact Twitter, etc)?

This has already been done by myself with examples from Geekzone users,

We are passing onto the end user what twitter is passing to 3rd party SMS vendor to Vodafone

Am seeing the same exclamation mark issue on Android, iOS, Symbian and MeeGo handsets, and also on the Nokia Suite Windows software.

Has anyone heard of this happening on the other telco that these sms are sent to?

I know they are sent there as well.

This is not handset related

I've just checked back in my txt feed on my Galaxy S. The sms notices were formatted fine on 1 Aug, but the first notice I got at 12.44pm on 2 Aug was screwed, and has been since then.
