Not stupid - if you had any comprehension of what is involved in the commercial negotiations (and technical side) relating to roaming you would understand. Obviously you have no idea. HA!HA!HA! Stick to commenting on subjects that you actually understand.

They have a strong commercial agreement with this one provider in the US and its the only one they could not two-way to, You and I both know what Inphomatch is, they could have organised something a bit sooner than today!

The Competition all had it running a few years ago!

Jama, Did you crawl out of the wrong side of bed. I like Telecom and use them heavily but some things they do are just plain silly.

...And maybe this time it had nothing to do with Telecom 'being silly'....

I could probably say there was weak demand for it. I doubt i've ever SMS'd someone on Sprint before. Australia is the big one. but i'm still surpised that they never arranged this earlier, normally when companies partner together, everything normally gets done overnight.
