  • I have sufficient credit to cover the cost.
  • I am using an ee pay as you go plan.
  • I currently receive sms for the voice mail in Iran.
  • I currently receive roaming call in Iran.

There is no cost for receiving a text anywhere in the world.

 

Have you just joined EE from O2? There is sometimes problems receiving verification codes by text after such a port. The port is not fully completed.

Good Morning @Pourmoossavian

 

Are you able to send messages ok?

 

Have you recently changed handsets?

 

I have sent you a private message for some further information,

Hi @Pourmoossavian 

 

Isn't Whatsapp banned or restricted in Iran. I would suspect that it maybe the carrier you are connected to blocking these. Have you tried via a VPN?

 

I would also be careful as you don't want to be arrested.

 

Thanks,
