Andib: I'm guessing this could be a side effect of their current system upgrades.

nathan: FWIW Vodafone NZ used to charge to receive roaming SMS in the US, probably Telecom too.  Maybe stopped about 4-5 years ago


Vodafone have never charged to receive a SMS in any country. To send, yes, but receive, no. Send rates used to form a combination of the regular 20c SMS charge + the network roaming charge.

It's something that's simply impossible to do - unlike voice there is no way for the phone owner to control whether they want to receive SMS messages. You'd be paying for delivery of something you have no control over.

You did however used to have to pay for voicemail deposits while roaming which is no longer the case.
