SMS TEXT in AREA 20

I moved by home phone from BT to Virgin media.

Phone was working okay on BT for receiving/sending text massages. It does not work here on trying to register nothing happens. two questions:

1. What are the settings for the SMS text centre for a BT 8500, and

2. I thought I read somewhere here that area 20 does not have text capability. Is this true?

You probably read it in the thread you started back in January here:

https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Home-Phone/BT8500-VM-service-centre-numbers-for-text/m-p/392336...

In that thread @BenMcr explained that it is not possible in area 20.

Re: SMS TEXT in AREA 20

It's also worth clarifying that it doesn't work on the Hub connected phone line in any area, which is the Purple Zone for Home Phone features I mentioned in my other post.
