    Hello all,

    Is it possible for me to text message from my vz phone to a number in
    Poland? I did today sent a message to: +48888xxxxxx

    it says sent and deleivered.. Do you think it worked? Does it cost
    anything extra to do this?
    I'm asking here first because I probably will not hear back from the
    recipient for at least a week.

    No it does not work... it did not work this summer when I was in
    poland.

    Use one of the online gateways from the major carriers (you need to
    know which service the person you are SMS'ing has)

    www.era.pl
    www.idea.pl
    www.plusgsm.pl

    ** there are various separately branded prepaid services as well that
    run on one of the 3 major networks listed above... ie. (Heyah -> Era,
    Pop -> idea, taktak -> Plusgsm, etc.) While I think it should still
    work, i'm not 100% sure if you can send messages to those subscribers
    from the main network sms gateways **

    PS. I heard that nextel and perhaps tmobile are able to send text
    internationally... Makes sense, since tmobile seems to be the
    preferred roaming partner here. (cingular and attws were also listed
    in my "idea" sim card)

    Verizon can send text internationally too. See www.vtext.com
    Poland isn't on their international list, but.

    But you know what, when my daughter was in Japan, we used to text each
    other all the time. Her phone had it's own email address:
    kimiko.blah.blah@docomo.ne.jp, and mine's was blahblah@vtext.com
    (vtext.com lets you create an alias instead of using your phone number)
    She's back in the US now, and she still texts her friends over there the
    same way, and the charges are no different from a domestic text message.

    Do Poland phones have a XXXXXXXXXX@vtext.com type of address? If so,
    try just texting them it like a regular email address. It worked for
    me.
