Does some people manage to send SMS to China?

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?

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.

It's one or the other

011

or

+

 

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.
