Ive got a spare telecom prepaid that has a $19 bundle but also has $4 credit.

I cant seem to send a txt to oz. I have the correct area codes and without the 0 etc, it works on another phone.

Do prepaid sims come blocked for international txts?

You will find that the bundle is for NZ mobiles only, you will need money in your prepaid account to send an international text or mms.
Found this out last year when investigating extra charges to my mobile.
It was all in Telecom (at the time) t & c's of package.

Just checked the Spark website and it says "Unlimited Texts to any NZ network"

While he does; $4.

OP, are you sure that you're entering the number correctly? +614xxxxxxxx

maybe it's an obscure Telco that won't receive Spark txt - having said that if any NZ Telco could sent sms to obscure international mobile, it would be Spark.
