    Hi Carl. US area code 484 is in Pennsylvania covering cities such as Allentown or Reading. Of course the cell could be used in Minnesota. One other thing - the US cell you listed above is 11 digit - either you listed 4 question signs instead of 3 by mistake or you have to many digits in your number - all US telephone numbers are 10 digit (3 digit area code + 7 digit local number).

    Now, to text a US cell from Ireland you would dial 00 1 followed by the 10 digit number discussed above. If this is what you've been dialing and you are getting an "unable to deliver message" try calling Vodafone to make sure your service can be used for international texting.

    Let me know if you have any further questions.

    Hi there. Thankyou both for your help. I did list an extra question sign by mistake!
    I've tried what you advised and no luck. The thing is my friend can't text me from her cell phone in Minn it's not happening either side of the pond. I'm going to call Vodafone and let them try to sort it out. Thanks again. Carl.
