First of all, are you sure you're putting 011 in front of the country code? That's a pretty common reason for international SMS not getting through.

It is possible that they are being sent to the other providers server, and then stopping. Do you know if that number is having problems receiving texts from everybody?

So intl texts have to have 011+ country code + routing code + number (it might be routing code and then country code but I dont think so)

Hi guys. I am trying to text Trinidad. And I have +1868...then the number..thing is that bet fri and sat morn, the texts were being received and then from 6pm on sat and now continuing, the texts are not being received. I did also try texting the person via my Trinidad cell number and even those aren't being received...I did text two other Trinidad numbers with my Komodo number and they received it....not sure what's going on :(

That would be a problem on the receiving end.
