sadly not all providers have the ability to exchange sms traffic.

Just because they accept sms traffic on their network does not mean that their home provider will forward traffic outbound internationally.

you would laugh at most of the systems that run sms anyway ... ancient technology!

The plot thickens: I wife just switched to tx with an iPhone (I also have an iPhone) but she has a monthly plan and she CAN receive txt's from this same person...

So to me that would put the ball back in Telecom's court...

Any ideas?

I wonder if the way in which they deliver text to pre paid is limited in some way

how odd!

I used to work for V*&^%$% by the way .. so at least have some inside knowledge :)

No it wouldn't. Call 120 instead.

I would take Johnr's advice and get your friend to contact her provider.

Why would you ring telecom faults when the sms you are sending make it overseas. As already advised the person sending the sms need to speak to their carrier they are the ones charging for the service. If sms are making it to other numbers on XT then i would say the carrier overseas has not opened the range what your number starts with after +6427xx

You don't need a romaing agreement in place these days carriers can use 3rd party vendors like sybase to route international SMS through
