I failed to send a SMS to China, it starts with 177 number.
However, I can manage to send SMS to the US number.
I wonder whether international SMS includes china or not.
Hi, it should be the same number used for calling.
Have you tried texting to "011" + "86" (country code) + area code + number?
@alexintel hi according to the help section yes but certain areas have systems that block or are not compatible
Do you have a link? Could not find it on the offical website.
I would think Public Mobile doesn't need to be responsible for knowing what jurisdictions may not welcome foreign inbound texts.
@alexintel If you signed up for a texting plan, you can send to anywhere (globally). If you don't have a texting plan, you won't be charged for trying to send a text. You can try +011 first then the number you want ot text in another country.
Sorry, it does not work on my cellphone, it automatically changes to +86.....
It's one or the other
Can you test with another provider to try to text the party in China? Or use a wifi texting app while connected to a North American network (no vpn). Or even another texting app for the OS you're using.
