Why won't this text message go through? (Australian to Canadian phone.)
posted by Flying Squirrel to Technology (8 answers total)
I have an Australian cell phone (Vodafone prepay.) I have been trying to text my mum in Canada. She has a Virgin prepay cellphone and her number is 519615XXXX. I have tried texting +1519615XXXX. I have also tried 00111519615XXXX. I keep getting failed message alerts.
I have been able to RECEIVE a text from my mum, but I can't reply. I can successfully text friends in the UK and in New Zealand.
I can call the number, just not text it.
I asked for help at a Vodafone store and they weren't able to help me.
Does anyone know why my texts are not going through and if there is any solution?
Would appreciate any ideas, thanks!!
