Is anybody else having problems with TXT in Raumati South?

I sent a text to someone in Raumati South at 1148  this morning and they only recieved it at 1656 this afternoon when they moved out of Raumati South!!!!!!

This is not the first time this has happened.

Cheers Paul

This is most likely a handset issue.

If you're really sure it's not, I suggest ringing Vodafone with times, dates, the sending number and the receiving number.

Did the SMS stay on-net or go off-net or does the end user live in very low coverage?

If the SMS stayed on-net then I check the SMS end to end from when it left handset to when it was delivered and how many times the network attempted to deliver the SMS and if many attempts the reason why

So, that's an hour for each exclamation mark you used in your thread title.

@kiwipawl Thanks for the DM with the INFO

The B party number is off-net and the SMS was passed to the other carrier to deliver

If you SMS the B party number to 300 shortcode (Free) you can check if a number is on-net or off-net

Thanks

I always thought that SMS wasn't guaranteed to be a real time service anyway..

Hi johnr thanks for the info.

The number I sent it to is a Vodafone number so why does it get passed on to another carrier?

Cheers Paul.

Just cause a number starts with 021 does not mean that number is on Vodafone

But I guess the fact that we pay Vodafone for the services does.
