Anyone able to SMS Australia?

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by Don McCuiston, Oct 3, 2003.

  1. I have a buddy I want to message in Australia. He tried to send me a
    couple of SMS messages with no luck. Anyone been able to send and/or
    receive SMS messages from that continent? Also, he can't do the
    ##########@vtext.com because his carrier charges him for an outgoing
    email, which is more than a SMS message. Any help would be
    appreciated.

    Thank you

  2. Hi!
    Australia is not on the list of International places VZW cureently receives
    Text or sends Text to.
    For that you will need a GSM phone (AT&T-GSM, T-Mobile(Preferably),
    Cingular).

    VZW being a CDMA is not that popular to people with GSM even though it has
    such a broad market in US.

    For the currently supported list goto http://www.vtext.com and select
    International TXTs.

    But you can get Instant Messeages from MSN to your VZW.

    Sincerely,
    R Randhawa.
