Text sms failure - not delivered - can someone test ?

Text bbc radio 5. = 85058
British transport police = 61016

Tried SMS to these 2 numbers. Been trying 4 weeks. They will not send.

Is this something to do with PLUSNET restrictions.

Unfortunately Plusnet do not support shortcode texting. Shortcodes are the 5 digit numbers you have given examples of.

PlusNet does not support short codes even though people think it is EE mobile by another  name its not you don't get the same 4G signal etc I think its you get what you pay for

I think the topic is on the second page of this mobile board.
Welcome to our community forums Wayne, and sorry you’re unable to use short codes.
Feedback has been passed on internally though I’ve no news to share regarding if or when we’ll start supporting them I’m afraid.
From 31st October 2022, I no longer have a regular presence here as I’ve moved on to a new role.
