Can anyone help: I have an Orange contract French phone and someone in the UK has a Vodaphone "pay as you go" and they can receive texts from me but I can not receive messages from them.

My situation was :

- me UK orange contract

- Partner SFR contract

She could never recieve my texts but I could receive her texts. SFR said it was a problem my end but couldn't explain why I could receive texts from other mobiles -both UK and French. When we were in the UK I decided to text her and see if it worked. No problems in UK texting her phone and now everthing works. Why, I have no idea. Seems a bit much though to travel to UK just to get text messages to work.

From Vodafone's own literature:

Sending international text messages from the UK to a non UK mobile number will cost 24p per message (inc.VAT) on pay monthly price plans.

(My emphasis). It suggests that pay-as-you-go Vodafone deals don't allow for the sending of international SMS.
