I've been having trouble receiving and sending text messages with my new 2 degrees SIM and my Nokia 2100. I haven't transferred over my vodafone number yet. Sometimes texts go through, sometimes they don't.

Here's what's been happening:
- Sent text to UK, it was received and a reply was sent, but I didn't receive the reply back.
- Sent text to Vodafone phones, not all messages are received.

Obviously we need to do more testing, but just in case is anyone else having similar texting issues?

I can ring and get calls from a friend who is on VF UK, but we can't send texts to each other from a 2degree's mobile.

I got a 2 degrees SIMcard yesterday; registered; can make phone calls; but text messages sent to NZ Vodafone say "Message cannot displayed":

It would be nice for this to be resolved quickly

I have failed to enter the required + for overseas numbers; this may well just be me, but when I put the 2 degrees simcard into my elderly Sony phone, it asked to delete existing memory in phone;
