After reading this thread about Telecom blocking overseas SMS services I did a broadcast test from the SMS service I use to my mobiles on Voda, XT and 2D.  2D was the only one that came thru.   More testing to Voda numbers resulted in the same  problem.  No SMS.

Yep skype works fine and so does ipipi so maybe it was a bug or Voda was blocking and now isn't. Looks like Telecom is blocking Skype as well..
