Does this actually work? I've only recently upgraded to a decent phone, and I'm with Vodafone.

When sending PXTs it seems a total gamble whether they'll reach my friends on their Telecom phones?

Example - I sent 3 PXTs to the same person on telecom, within an hour today, and they only received the first one??

Is this common knowledge that inter-network PXTs sometimes get lost? Or is this a flaw with my account or something? Thanks.

I would also like to know the answer to this question, I have just recently signed up on TelstraClear/Telecom invitation only mobile, and I have a Vodafone mobile also. I am unable to send PXT to and from my Voda/TCL and vise versa thanks.

Edit: I am able to send from Vodafone/Vodafone fine.

I couldnt tell you wether there is anything wrong with your account.

however, i often send pxts from telecom to vodafone and although there is sometimes a couple days wait time they eventually all make it through

Hmmm up to a couple days wait time huh. Does it make any difference what you have the "validity period" setting as under your Message settings? I just realised before that last time I was trying to figure this disappearing vodafone-telecom PXT thing out, I changed the Validity Period to 1hour... I've just changed it back to Network Maximum.

Anybody know if that could effect things? I'm presuming it really comes down to how well the two networks are sending MMS data to each other? It just seems so pathetic that a small image is not able to be sent promptly to another networks phone.... who knows whether these PXTs I sent 3 hours ago will ever arrive at my friends phone.... bizarre.

It seems to be a complete gamble for me too. I send multiple pxts and some get through and some dont (im on vodafone, recipient telecom), voda to voda works flawlessly, ive basicaly given up on pxting telecom friends these days. One thing you can count on though, wether it gets through or not: your definetly being charged for it!
