Hello world,

Just tested SMS exchange between 2degrees and all German majors operators except for Vodafone (no SIM at hand right now) and these are the results:

+ = working
- = not working
? = unclear
incoming = sent from 2degrees
outgoing = sent to 2degrees


T-Mobile Germany (262-01)
incoming: +
outgoing: +
SMSC: +447785016005 (Vodafone UK)


Vodafone Germany (262-02)
incoming: ?
outgoing: ?
SMSC: ?


o2 Germany (262-07)
incoming: +
outgoing: +
SMSC: ? (Nokia N95 won't display origination SMSC)


eplus Germany (262-03)
incoming: -
outgoing: -
SMSC: -


vistream (262-16)
incoming: +
outgoing: -
SMSC: +38975000200 (Cosmofon Macedonia)


mobilcom debitel (MVNO on the 4 first-mentioned networks)
incoming: +
outgoing: +
SMSC: +64226134050 (2degrees)


How does it come, that SMS to vistream are routed through Macedonia, an underdeveloped country?

Let's post your experience with other international operators here, too.

regards,

Inquisitor

P.S.: I have SIMs from T-Mobile UK and Vodafone UK, all three Bulgarian MNOs and Swisscom. If anyone from 2degrees staff is interested in some testing these operators contact me.

mystic, Feedback without disclosure of the involved network is kind of useless for 2degrees.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Short_message_service_center - some phones will show the originating SMSC under "details".
