SMS Messages to Mobile Via ICQ

  BigAl127 23:57 12 Jul 2003

As anyone been successful in sending an SMS text message via ICQ to a mobile phone. I've tried several times over the past week, and although ICQ reports that the messages have been sent, they haven't been received by the mobile phone.

Any ideas anyone.

i thought id done something wrong. glad to know its not just me

I've tried omitting the leading zero off the mobile number as is usually the case cos ICQ uses the +44 international code. That didn't work either.

I've tried searching the web for Free PC SMS to mobiles, and all I can find is free software and then you buy bulk messages which seem to cost more than sending direct from my mobile :-(

It used to work great about 12/18 months or so ago. I used to be able to send as many as I liked whenever I liked, then all of a sudden it stopped. So, sending texts via ICQ, stopped, as far as I can establsh, at least a year ago. It was a big loss

looks like you can only send via O2, Orange & Vodafone. I've been trying t-Mobile.

Still No Luck, i've tried to most networks today. Seems you might be right that it's been discontinued without telling anyone:-((((
