OK so I am over in the US of A on holiday. My cunning plan was to buy myself a T-Mobile SIM and forward my 2degrees number to my T-Mobile number, hopefully incurring 22cNZ + 10cUS for incoming calls and 10cUS for outgoing instead of $1NZ in and $4.39NZ out.
Getting the SIM card was not a problem, but trying to implement the forwarding was.
Q1: can you use *21*number# to implement forwarding once you are already roaming, or does this only work when you are in your home network. (It seemed to work fine while I was at home, but now while roaming I get "not allowed".
Q2: Does anyone know if there are problems with texts from T-Mobile at the moment. The 2degrees website suggests things should be OK, but when I text home (all 021 on 2degrees so far) they don't go through.
