Teabag first off thanks for replying, i appreciate it. I have moved over to virgin from vodafone where i was never charged for sharing a contact through messages, so I'm finding it hard to understand a 50p charge for something that other providers do for free.
Mobile data (as far as i'm aware) and can see in my settings is set to - Always On.
I still can't share a contact through messaging, it does however work when sharing through Whatsapp, which is a little less convenient, as not everyone uses WhatsApp.
Yes i can send and receive MMS messages through WhatsApp anyway.
I go to my Phone Contacts > more > share > I then have a several choices for sharing, including: WhatsApp, Gmail, Messages.. I choose Messages, and it says Sending.. for up to 12 hours then fails to send, sometimes with an error or just a Failed warning.
@teabag trust me, if I could authorise that I definitely would do.
We've tried it from here on a couple of phones and the results were inconclusive, one was able to send and the other not, though I think it was down to the handset or operating system, iOS failed and Android was able to send it successfully.
