At long last, after 2 years of lobbying Vodafone, SMS to/from China actually started working properly today.

Why on earth would they not allow to send/recieve from china. It would get them quite a bit of revenue when sending to China...




Do whatever you want to do man.

I wasn't having any issues when I switched to the competition.

I did have it working once upon a time, once it broke and nether Vodafone or Chinamobile expressed any interest when I called... the blame game started. After switching I can send and receive sms without any issues.

Vodafone never got round to signing agreements with the chinese mobile operators until now. I guess it would be too embarrassing in a year of the Olympics and a major free trade deal for this to not be working. At least its working now and we don't need to have multiple phones again!

it was never broken the sms were always routed to the carrier in china that is all that vodafone could do. Vodafone do not block international sms to any carrier in the world.
