Hi Guys,

My friend had a vodafone phone, and could text her mum in Russia, but her mum could not reply to her. I tested on my telecom XT phone, and she could reply to me so she went out and bought herself a prepaid XT mobile.

however on the new phone with new sim (the number is new, it is not ported) her mum cannot reply.

So we both send a text to the same number in Russia, (both on Telecom Xt 3g) her mum receives both messages, she can reply to mine and I receive it, but she cannot reply to my friend. (the Russian phone is on beeline, which states xt can send and receive)

Weird, no?

Teleocm support could not help us.

THe issue may be the way the Russian company are sending the SMS replies (or WHO they are sending to) as an internaltional sms supplier e.g. probably not directly to Telecom, Voda or 2degrees but through a HUB service.

The person in Russia needs to raise the issue with the carrier they use and complain- this will be the fastest way to resolve- e.g. i paid for you to deliver this message to NZ and it did not get there.

If you raise it with the local provider- telecom, voda, 2d they will have to take the same approach and contact the far end party directyl. But as they may not have a commercial relationship- i doubt they do- it will be best to get the PAYING subsriber to start the investiagtion at the far end,

Have you checked the Telecom NZ website for 2 way international SMS INFO?

Vodafone NZ has a list up on Vodafone.co.nz

Cool so if it's not working then the A party (sending) needs to log a fault ticket with the carrier

Hi, If you send me some recent examples via PM, date/time of sent SMS to both numbers I can check our end.
Please continue to advise A party to log a fault to their provider however.
