I have a little query and am wondering if someone else can confirm it with me?

I have a friend trying to SMS me from an Orange (O2) prepay cellphone in the UK. They are able to receive SMS from Vodafone/2degrees/Telecom but only Vodafone are able to receive SMS from her.

I have double and triple checked that all the numbers are correct etc... and it has been several hours since she has attempted sending the messages so a hold up somewhere is looking like less of a possibility.

We're unable to test calls due to credit restrictions but I'm not sure if that would make much of a difference.

Anyone have a similar experience?

is it a ported number or direct 022 number? And does 2d say they are partnered with them on their site?

Hi 2 months ago had no problem sending and receiving texts between 2 degrees and Orange. I thought however that O2 was a seperate network to Orange?

Cheers for the answers, I've had a read of SaltyNZ's posts regarding SMS and now have a much greater understanding.

Also, I was confused about the network she was messaging from. She has tried both and I received the SMS messages this morning at ~1:30am. I have received three from her Orange mobile but nothing from her friend's O2 cell as yet.

Hi,

Send me a DM with yours and the O2 number and time of sending and I'll check if it reached our network.

Cheers
