Howdy, I'm getting sick of txt messages taking 12+ hours to travel between networks. It doesn't happen all the time, but more than enough. I don't know if it's telecoms or 2degrees fault, and I don't care; I'm with telecom and the service I'm getting isn't good enough. An explanation would be nice, but not good enough, and I'm not complaining through the front door because it never gets anywhere.

Glad to see they are still having these issues ... How many of these messages are not being delivered at all?

What did Telecom say when you contacted them and gave them examples (assuming you have already done this which would be the first step)? It's very easy for them to identify where the problem is.

At the end of the day however SMS is a best effort service.

Also you have to ask the A Party (the origin network) for support. If the SMS are originating at 2degrees, they have to provide support to the person sending the SMS (if not you sending then someone else has to contact them).

If you want to email me "pl at telecom.co.nz" the case number you logged with the Mobile Support team on 0800 800 163 and their response that would be great. As they should be able to track any delays and which end it's happening on (or tell you if it's a known problem).

You're "glad" to see that? That seems pretty selfish.

To the OP, please can you get the originator, if they're on 2degrees to contact us.

We need details like -
* A party number
* B party number
* Times/dates of SMS sent by A and arrived at B
* Where A party was at time and B was.
* Phone make/model of both parties
* Was the 2degrees customer on our network or roaming?

Cheers

Is there any other way I can contact them? I really don't communicate well by phone, especially with this kind of thing. I'd also rather make complaints/queries in 'writing' so that I can reference what I've said later, my memory is terrible.

Also to clarify, the incidents that I can remember (of which I have dates and times for only one) are from my telecom to a family members 2degrees. There may have been times it's been the other way, but I can't recall.

I've used the online form to message faults before about this, they never replied, which is why I came here this time.

You won't want to hear this: If you want Telecom to take you seriously, you really do need to provide the information requested.
Without this they will be looking (or not) for a very small needle in a very large haystack

Sigh. When you get a chip on your shoulder, you really get a big chip on your shoulder, don't you?

You can use the Online Chat on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/telecomnz/app_212097992149339

And someone on there may / should be able to help.

Otherwise flick me an email and I can bounce it via the right team.
