    o2 can't receive text message from abroad

    Has the title says my wife's o2 contract sim cannot receive txt messages from the philippines. it worked once months ago but it has stopped working now. i tried using different phones, tweaking the GSM settings and still no joy.

    o2 are pretty useless when talking to them has they still think its not there problem even though it blatantly is. maybe someone here knows why

    i myself is on t mobile and i can recieve txt messages without a problem but my wife cant.my wife however can send text messages to the philippines and even call them, its just that it doesnt receive txt from the philippines.

    Any suggestions? thanks in advance and hope someone can help because my wife is pissed gave the o2 guys a right bolloking

    Surely it would be best to start with a quick call to CS to see if they can help first?

    A friend of mine had this problems a few years back, turned out he needed to use a different message centre number i think, plus some network setting.

    O2 will say it's not there problem it's an issue with the providers over there.
