Roaming abroad but cannot send text



Similar to another post I need to send a text to my bank.

Virgin can text me as each time I restart I get a text saying you will charge me a fortune.  Regardless I cannot send any text.

I have roaming switched on but all I see is Virgin cannot send text error code 0

Do you know why?

Hi Loosecanons,

Thank you for your post. I'm very sorry to hear about the issue with your roaming service. 

To confirm, is it just the text service you are having the issue with? 



Thanks for getting back.

I think the issue is I have international call barring switched on. It took me ages to find that setting. I received a voicemail from my bank which had incurred a charge but I cannot listen to.  I have enabled all settings but still cannot text. 

I think I will have to wait until I'm back in the UK


Thanks for your reply @Loosecanons this certainly is an odd issue 🤔

Where have you travelled to? Have you been able to perform a manual network search on the handset to see if there are any other networks you can connect to? If so, can you please try different networks to see if the texts work?

You can find information on how to do this via different handsets here.

Let us know how this goes, we'll be happy to help further if needed.
