    Hi, my boyfriend has a Peruvian cell phone and I can receive text messages from him but when I reply with my UK phone he does not receive them. I can call his phone no problem but he has never received my texts although it says sent on my phone. I have changed the number so it says +51 ..... and I have also tried 0051 and neither of them work. We have double checked to make sure I have the correct number, but now I am stuck!
    Can anyone help me with this?

    Many thanks

    Hi Nicola,
    This is a rather frequently reported issue - international texts not reaching their destination. Possible causes (provided you have been dialing the right sequence which for Peru is +51 9?? ??? ???):
    -your wireless plan does not include/allow international texts;
    -possible incompatibilities between your wireless network and his.

    If you know for sure that your plan lets you send international texts I could try sending your friend a test message from my phone. If he gets my message then you would need to call your wireless provider to inquire about your issue. If you want to do this just send me the Peruvian cell number using the top Contact button on this page.
