Texting from Canada to the US


I have been sending texts from Canada to someone in the US recently.  They didn't respond, so I followed up with an email.  They said they never got the texts.  I have sent 4 now, double checked the number, etc.  Any thoughts on why they are not receiving them?  I just have the basic data unlimited texting plan...

There's no reason why it shouldnt be working. Are you entering the full 10 digit number? Try restarting your phone by turning it off and on and sending a text. The problem could very much be on their end just as much as it is yours.

Texting to the US is routed the same way as it is in Canada. If you're able to send texts to long distance numbers in Canada, then there's no reason it shouldn't work for the US. Are you able to receive texts from this US number?

Almost everyday I send and receive texts from Europe. No problems for me and you should not have any problems either. The only time I had problems I had a wrong APN. Fixed that I was back on track.

However. International texting may not be allowed by that person's plan. Ask your friend to check with theircarrier.
