SMS not delivered to Thailand....but Skype still charges you for the SMS.

Novel Adventurer


Anyone had the same expirence lately? I can't send SMS to Thai phonenumbers lately, i tried several different numbers, with no luck - if i test with a Danish phone the text get through, no problem.

I've tried with several numbers including my own Thainumber, currently roming in Denmark - no luck eighter.

Anyone with same expirence or a solution, update from Skype...anything?

I've tried with Skype for Windows, OS X, iOS 5 and Android....nothing get's through. But calling works fine.

/A Dane living in Thailand.

I am having a similar issue.  I am in peru, but live in the USA.   I have had no problems till tuesday when it started rejecting and failing any messages sent to my GF's cell phone in peru. 


I can hotwever call her with no issues,  and i can message friends in the USA with no issues.  They need to fix this,  it is the only reason i use skype really.  I am about to buy her a iphone and just use imessage and facetime and be done with skype

I have a girlfriend in Thailand and I'm in the USA.  My SMS have been going through fine and they must be going through quickly as I have been getting her responses quickly.


Anyone know if you buy an online number if you can receive SMS that are sent to that number?  I assume you can but I can't find anything confirming this.

I can not get thru on the phone to a Thailand number, and maybe the SMS is not being seen either. Last video I got was 11 March 12 @17:00 That worked well. Since then I can not get any connection, phone or video. I keep getting a network error message on the phone and no video shows at all

Has any one had this problem and is it still happening. I have sent 3 SMS messages daily now all of a sudden it is not being delivered. They can rec from Google, yahoo and my cell but not from skype. Do they want me to subscribe to get a support person. I am a account but I am not subscribing. Also androids for skype I can type the message but there is no way to send the message.
