Texting Israel.

I have texted someone who is on holiday in Israel.  I have no bolt ons or extras.  How do I know if they have received my text?  Or will the text just hang around until they get back to the UK.  I cannot see any details in my account that tells me about sending abroad.

Re: Texting Israel.

@zaffy  If you texted a UK number they will receive it at some point. It just depends on the network they're roaming on as to when. You don't need a bolt on or any extras to text a UK number if they're not in the country.

You will never be charged for texting or calling a UK mobile, from the UK, no matter where they are.

It is the recipient that pays roaming charges.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.
