Texting? 10p for you to send it to them, nothing for them to receive it and I think it's either 30p or 35p to send one back - this is based on o2 prices.

Calling? Go to MSE and they have a great drop down menu cheapest international call checker, saves me a fortune.

does the receiver get charged for calls abroad, im sure when i lived abroad either when i called someone, or someone called me from the uk both of us got charged. i cant remember which way it was thow

just something else to think about/find out
it may have changed now, it was a few years ago when i was abroad

I,m with T-mobile and they have 40p per txt from the Dom to the UK so just wondering what it costs to send over there, also found the dialling codes, they are complicated can anyone show me how to txt a mobile from here to there.

they have a 809 prefix but also a 1 in some and what number do I drop from the mobile number????

if i was calling say 07712345678, how should it look to send a txt over to there.

thanks

Thanks, would it matter what one i used.

according to the bt website use the 1809, or 1829 from the uk, but put 00 infront aswel
so 0018097712345678

http://www.thephonebook.bt.com/publisha.content/en/search/international/record.publisha?id=L64

it doesnt matter which of the codes u use i dont think, but the 1809 is the most popular
thats what iv found online anyways

when u get a text from ur friend it should come up with the correct number
whenever iv called between countries its always been to use the country code and drop the 0
so 077123456789 calling from abroad to the uk would be 00447712345678
which is the same amount of numbers as 18097712345678
should be 14 numbers altogether, 16 if u add the 00 at the very front so double check

Just did a straight reply to a text from the country sent and got a reply message from my friend, so you must not need a code when using a mobile???
