Trying to text friend in Germany...

Im trying to text my friend in Germany (I'm in the U.S.) I have the share plan that gives free international texting.  So I have his number saved with the country code so example 491512xxxxxxx 

 

But I keep getting error message to only use a 10 digit code or short...here wait..ill copy error message but x out some of his phone number.

 

111491512xxxxxxx Error Invalid Number. Please re-send using a valid 10 digit mobile number or valid short code. 

 

Can someone help me get this text sent?

Make calls and send texts

  • To a country outside of the U.S.: Press + or 011 on your phone’s keypad, then the country code and local number.
