Texting Souther Ireland

Anyone know why I can receive texts from a mobile number in Soutern Ireland but not send them?

I can call the number but not text.

The phone is a Samsung S8 on contract.

Thanks

@Clarky58   Are you on contact or PAYG ?  Is this an Irish number ?

@Clarky58 : It is free to receive texts from anywhere but it costs to send them to a non-UK no. from the UK. You are not roaming when you do so. They count as International texts & are chargeable. So are International calls.

 

International calls & texts to overseas nos. from UK can be rather expensive but EE has a free add-on that anyone, on PAYG or contract, can apply for to give these calls & texts at a fraction of the standard rates. See The Free CALL ABROAD Add-on for Cheap Calls/Texts from UK .

@XRaySpeX   The problem is sending texts not calling as @Clarky58  can call the number.  While your link will help keep the cost down ( to call ) it doesn’t fix the text issue.
