Sending SMS abroad


Recommended Posts


I live in Xiamen and have recently gotten an phone account with China Mobile / Go Tone.

The problem is I can send SMS to Denmark, but I when my friend want to reply, I can NOT recieve the SMS they send .

Does anybody now what is wrong or what I can do ?

This has come up before, and if I remember correctly you need to work out the issue at the overseas end - if your friends phone is able to send international SMS to China, it'll work, if not, it won't. You'd need to speak to the mobile operator in Denmark.

My thoughts are the same. If you can't receive them it's due to the fact that he can't send them. Of course every now and again a message won't make it through or it makes it 24 hours later (while your friend is sleeping at 3am of course :tong )

I have this problem too, and it's not just related to China. Sometimes my UK phone company (Three) can't send messages to Portugal, not to mention China. The reason is that the network operators don't have the necessary contracts in place (although phone calls go through). If you really need to use SMS, either you or your friend might need to use a different network.
