SMS on home phone

Hi, I’m trying to setup sms service centres on our gigaset  sl910 . The gumf on your website suggests to look at the phone manual and the phone manual suggests I ask virgin media. Who’s correct.

We keep getting bt voice messages from bt text . Instead of an actual text message. 
when I try to sms 00000 to turn off voice messages I get “error fd” with the bt services centre number and obviously the error “no service centre setup” without.

so what service centre number is correct for a siemens gigaset sl910, please.

Hello

The reason you are having problems is that VM don't do SMS on a home phone.

Re: SMS on home phone

Thank you both, should have realised it would another virgin fail.

why it can’t just say that on the “texting from home phone” page is beyond me.

It does:

https://www.virginmedia.com/help/home-phone-texting

* Messages can be sent to any UK mobile number or UK landline number excluding Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man. Business customers that have an ISDN service or are behind a PABX will not be able to receive text messages as text messages. Some calling features affect use of SMS service. Only available to customers in Bill areas 1-18 and customers NOT in the Purple feature zone.
