johnr: Just cause a handset advises message sent does not mean there is no fault. if it was working before it should be working now.

Celcom front line staff should be logging a fault to a technical team not passing it to some supervisor.

SMSR/SMSC logs should be checked / access7 traces done to see why the messages are failing this is what I would do working for Vodafone NZ. Check out this thread on the Vodafone NZ forum issue was resolved a few hours after we looked into the issue.

Get your Friend on Celcom to log a fault ticket to the tech team

No, I understand what u mean. Celcom reps asked them to send me text, and they put them on hold for 5-10mins. Then they ask to send another one again. They took some time and ring back to tell that everything works fine on their end. This is not just a simple phone call, telling you to send text msg and see if the phone came out with 'message sent'. However, I will ask them to lodge fault to softbank mobile (japan) to see if there is also anything wrong on their side.

Maybe I should lodge fault to 2degrees?


Best Idea is with the A party carrier

Uh... I will also try to get texts send from 'Digi' and 'Maxis'. See if those companies with BIG TICKS from 2degrees can send the texts properly.

Best example is a voice call

A party person that starts the call

B party person that receives the call

You need to ask Paul Brislen for the key to the chain that holds me to my desk

Hi there
Can send me a DM with the following info so I can get Tier2 to look into this for you: -

* Your 2degrees number
* The numbers trying to text you.
* The country and network they're on.
* Times and dates of the sent texts.

Also, the date and amount you last topped up by (for authentication purposes).
Cheers
^POB

Received phone call from 2 degrees (twice) with regards to this issue. They admitted that there was a mistake in the website, softbank mobile was listed as their partner / one of the companies with big tick. Quite pleased with how they handle this. I hope they can get more overseas carrier on board.

It might be possible that your text sender had also ported their number to a new provider that isn't sending to 2degrees correctly. NZ needs an agreement between Telcos for forwarding SMS, which will solve all these problems. Of course Vodafone would like to enforce their customers' loyalty so it wont happen voluntarily.

I have same problem, my landlord uses some Australian software that sends text messages but they don't know what provider actually performs the telco functions. Texts never arrive at my ported 021-xxxxx number and nobody cares enough to find out who is the provider in Australia. I am sure they are sending messages to Voda, who junk them automatically.

Clickatell (fairly popular SMS provider) have confirmed in email that they can't get messages to me:


Your number xxxxx has been ported from Vodafone (BellSouth) to the 2 Degrees Network. We do not guarantee delivery to ported numbers as we route messages depending on their original network prefix.


Which is a bit sucky -- if they're who @webwat's landlord's software uses, that'd explain why texts didn't come through.  Who do we lobby to get carriers to forward misdirected international SMS?

Ha, now they say they don't support mobile number portability for all but a few countries (NZ isn't on the list).  Are there any cheapish SMS providers that do?
