Text Messaging Italy

    I have been all over the forum, support, as well as going to the the ATT store to ask a rep. I have received differing information on how to go about textint my brother who live in Italy. I was told +01139 then number, I was told +39 then number, I have also seen +139011then number. What do I need to do exactly. I would greatly appreciate an actualy reply to clarify what I need to do. Please no links to other sites or the support docs. I have been over them a million times.

Thanks

+39 then number is correct, as is 01139 then number.

I am correct in assuming +39 and 01139 will work regardless of the carrier he is using? He is using Vodafone Italy and may be switching to WIND shortly but, keep the same number. Also thank you for the fast reply. Glad I switched from Sprint to ATT. Smiley Happy

You're welcome!

As long as it's an Italian carrier, it shouldn't matter as 39 is the country code. However, AT&T may not work with all carriers in Italy, although both Wind and Vodafone seem to be supported by AT&T according to the international text messaging info.
