Re: cant send texts abroad

Try manually connecting to all of the networks. Movistar at least should work for calls/data/texts

Did you get a welcome to Spain text on arrival? (I assume you did as it worked initially)

Re: cant send texts abroad

Hi animal2000_0,

 

Thanks for posting and welcome to the community 🙂

 

I am sorry to hear you're having issues with the SMS service in Spain. Can you try a manual network search to see if this solves it?

 

Kind regards,
