I'm on Vodafone if that makes a difference and they live in Oklahoma.

Their cell phone numbers are so different to ours so do i have to put anything in front of it or just type it how it is.

Sorry if i sound a bit thick but i have no idea how to do it

I don't want to text them if it will cost them a fortune.

Ooops sorry for the extra posts, i did it on my phone and it always seems to do that blush

Thank you Riven. Do you type the numbers in with the - in? or just enter the numbers? Do you know if it costs her anything to recieve them?

Oh and does it cost you if she replys to you?

My mom in California is charged for incoming texts and calls. I don't know if this is just her service plan or not?

Could you send one and ask how much it cost them?

001= to USA/Canada

Area Code = 3 digit

Phone number = 7 digits

Thank you. Yes i might do that. It's my BIL and SIL and they want a text when my DC2 is born so that they'll get woken up by the phone rather than getting an email and not knowing they've got it iykwim.

Oh, in the case of a new niece or nephew, they can afford the cost! grin
