From what I have figured out; it depends on the network carrier;cti must have a friendly contract with your friends network.I work off meteor from ireland and moviestar from argentina; I can ring all networks but txtn only works to some networks and not all the time.One way to make sure a txt goes through for me is to log onto my account with my Irish provider and send a free sms that way; I presume its routed through a different way as they always go through( also saves me a small fortune as txting from BA on an Irish mobile phone is 50 cent euro a txt).All in all its not certain if you send a txt from any argentine mobile that it will go through..We have tried this with all the major argentine carriers and it doesnt work all the time; maybe one in every three goes through and I have often recieved an argentine txt to my Irish mobile three days later.

Hope you manage to get in contact with your mate

Hi, Mark.....I believe you have to have international dialing enabled with CTI. If it is a prepaid cell phone, the one where you load cards, it may not be possible. Your text could possibly be going to the same place where the one missing sock in a pair goes when I do a load of laundry. If you know your friend's mobile carrier in Oz, you might be able to send him a SMS message from the provider's website.....hope this helps. Suerte!
