My girlfriend is currently in the Solomon Islands and I am struggling to find a way to get SMS to her. She has a Solomon Island mobile now and she is able to SMS to me in the UK no problem (I'm on Tesco mobile). I have tried replying to her number but it instantly fails (I don't think it's even getting out of the UK). I've tried using Skype to send an SMS to the number but that also fails and says invalid number.
Am I missing a code somewhere? The number is +677 76000**. I have a feeling that because it is not a typical 10 digit phone number, it's being flagged as invalid. Is there a way to get either my mobile or Skype to force send it?
The Tesco mobile website even lists the Solomon Islands as one of their Zone 3 countries and says it should be 20p per text (I am being charged for these failed ones too!) yet gives no information on how to SMS to the country (or any other non 10 digit number).
Any help would he hugely appreciated!
