SMS to spanish mobile number

Just a heads up.

I responded to a couple of text messages from a friend who lives in Spain.

When my latest bill arrived I notice that I have been charged 17p for each text message.

Something to be aware of and I'll be using Whatsapp in future when texting friends abroad.

I use a mixture of WhatsApp and Viber depending on the recipient as you can type so much more.

 

Also it gets round the issue of long texts being switched to a chargeable MMS which, with EE, seems to be once it goes into the 4th text (using MyPhoneExplorer it goes into the 6th text before becoming an MMS).

Cheers Mav,

I've noticed that switching to MMS can also depend on the make and model of Phone. My Samsung Galaxy S7 is particularly temperamental.
