Re: does sms work to USA?

Hi @rapt10

 

Thanks for posting on our community forum!

 

If you have a spend cap on your account this may stop you from being able to send SMS's to the USA. Do you get an error message when attempting this?

Costs are 30p for each SMS you send to the USA. 

Other free messaging services (like WhatsApp or Facebook messenger for example) can be used instead.

Re: does sms work to USA?

To follow up, the quick answer at least UK to USA Send sms works without the cap. The fuller question is whether i can receive my sms or voice msgs that have been left on my US telephone.

My UK phone is an old android Samsung S3 Neo on VM billing.

My US phone is a Tracfone (LG android) on Tracfone billing, being renewed as i speak. May take awhile.
