Texting from abroad not working

Texting from abroad not working

I bought the global text plan and was able to text to US from South Korea with no problem. Now I'm in Uzbekistan and texts are not going through. Is there a code or sequence of numbers I need to dial to get text sent?

Thanks

Re: Texting from abroad not working

 

Hello @Sprout66 

 

Global messaging should work in Uzbekistan, are you able to use other phone functions? Try restarting your phone by removing the battery (if possible), or do a reset. Try adding +1 in front of the phone number if you're texting a US number, or just dial normally for local numbers. If you're still having issues, call our international support line @ 1-916-843-4685

 

Thank you,

Dmitriy

Also, FaceTime did not work at all in Uzbekistan, but I believe that was due to government filtering rather than connectivity issue. FaceTime worked in South Korea.
