Text messages dilemma. Can receive from England, NOT from Ireland. Can send to both!
Posted on 2013-10-22
Am in Nigeria for a period. My Sim Card for Cell phone is MTN network.
I find I can send text messages to other cell phones in England (+44) and in Ireland (+353), in each case omitting the first zero of the cell phone number. The texts are received (have verified this through email contact)
However when my recipient IN IRELAND clicks Reply and Send, it does NOT reach me; while my recipient in England, when clicking Reply and Send, DOES reach me? As the song says: how could his be?
Last year, here for a while, with a different Sim Card and number there was No problem with either country.
The cellphone I am using is an iPhone 3GS (last year too). I have checked this with a Second Cellphone - same problem. Not the phone, it seems.
Any help appreciated.
