My texts to other users just dont get to their destination. i've had this problem for a number of weeks and the texts just get lost in the system, i can recieve messages from other giffgaff users but i cant send them back.

 

i have already checked for network issues on http://status.o2.co.uk

 

i have already restarted and reset my phone completely, removed the sim card and tried deleting and reentering the number into the phone.

 

any ideas??

try both +447xx and 07 formats; does it fail both ways?

 

is message centre number correct:   +447802002606

 

Only option left then would be to contact an agent and get the technical team to investigate

Have you topped up £10 in the last three months?

 

What does it say here?

Does it work fine with other networks? To be honest it sounds like a problem on the account, not the network/mast, so see if an agent can do anything.

As he's got a £10 goodybag, I'm not sure knowing this actually helps us tbh.
