johnr: 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.


Maybe it's just because it is Friday and this has been a very long week, but this sentence confuses me. How is who you pay for your service relevant to the recipient's ability/inability to receive it on another network?

His point is the recipient is on the Vodafone network because that's company being paid for that number.

I would like to see a conclusive report that the recipient is or is not on Vodafone.

I am told this recipient number (without being told the number) is on another network, ported some time ago.

We are told the SMS is passed to this other network instantly.

From this point it is up to the other network to deliver.

I can't understand why the OP is insisting this is a Vodafone problem. I have not seen evidence this recipient is on Vodafone yet - only the other way around.

This is interesting.

So the receiver is on Vodafone network or not?

"Queue James Bond song"

Is johnr right or kiwipal is correct?


State your vote and why?

When I get home tonight I will physically check which network my wife's phone is on.

This really has seems gotten a bit out of control as I am not "insisting" that it is a Vodafone problem just replying to johnr comments. The fact that we pay Vodafone for our celphone service I assumed that it was on the Vodafone network.

If johnr who I assume is a Vodafone employee and has access to info that I don't re the network I guess he must be right.


If he can enlighten me to the how these things are setup and work that would be great.


Cheers Paul.

but he says it's HIS WIFES mobile, so as the bill payer, surely he knows who he pays the bills to? perhaps the number was ported out and back, but I'd vote WITH the bill payer here, sorry JohnR, but databases can be known to be out of date/incorrect too?

maybe this is even why it failed?

The number not being on the HLR is a firm indicator it's not a Vodafone account...

Let's see what The Wife says tonight.

Queue James bond music.
