I am abroad at the moment I can receive texts from UK but I am not receiving texts from mobile providers from the country I am in (Finland) I was able to and I just stopped getting texts from people I know in this country no problem sending texts. Help

Re: Receiving texts

Hi Stalmine,


Welcome to the forums Smiley Happy

 

That's an odd one! Sorry to hear you're having some issues with receiving texts. This could be a routing issue with the phone but as your abroad, we have very little control over this. Are you able to text these numbers?

 

Let me know when you can.


Thanks,

Mat

Re: Receiving texts

Thanks for the reply David Smiley Happy

 

It seems like there may be a routing issue on the Finnish side of things.

 

I'm afraid that there's not much that we can do regarding this as we're not in control over that network. Are they able to text an alternative number to see if this comes through?

 

Let me know as soon as you can.

Thanks,

Mat

Re: Receiving texts

It sounds like you would be better using a messaging application such as Watsapp. 

Although I use it for individuals I also have a family group set up. Type one message and send to all the members in one go.
