    Hi guys, having a few problems recieving text messages from a friend in the US and was wondering if anyone could help?

    Basically, the friend in the US has tried texting me but I am not recieving the messages from them. They are with "Sprint" and I am on T-Mobile.

    They put +44 followed by the rest of my number (they replaced the 0 with +44) and have been charged for it but i still haven't recieved anything(it's been many hours now)? Could it be my phone(Samsung SGH-C300, crap, but a phone's a phone, right?).

    Can someone with any knowledge help here because I really am miffed by this.

    Thanks.

    Unfortunately, the USA is like a third world country when it comes to mobile technology.

    You can't even text between some networks *inside* the USA - so I'm not surprised that it's not working...
