Texting the Isle of Man - is there a solid answer?

Hey,

I've been looking around the internet to see if texting a friend in the Isle of Man would be feasible - what I've gathered, is that half the people say it works, the other half say it's just purely costly.

 

I'm currently using a mobile with unlimited texts, on monthly - texting seems to work, but I do not know what the cost is, especially if I'm on contract. Are these texts covered by the contract? The virgin website just says that calls/texts to "other UK Networks" includes Isle of Man, but doesn't explicitly say if the cost is included in the contract or is an extra fee.

 

Since there is so little solid information - does anyone have any experience/can anyone clear this up once and for all?

 

Thanks,

Tom

Hi Montbo,

 

My apologies, you are correct I've posted the wrong link for you and confused myself in the process.

 

I've edited my previous post to save any confusion.

 

Here is the link for making calls abroad from the UK. The Isle of man wouldn't be classed as calling abroad even though roaming charges would apply should you go there.

 

The texts you have sent already which are showing under your inclusive texts are correct.

 

Hope this clarifies things for you.

 

Cheers

Re: Texting the Isle of Man - is there a solid answer?

I saw this page before - but it seems to be related to sending/calling while IN the Isle of man, rather from UK to IoM.

I've tested sending messages and they show up under the "Inclusive Texts" in the My Account app, though I presume this is because it's counting all apps sent, I haven't had a chance to.

 

So this applies to sending from the UK as well? That's a shame.

 

Thanks though!
