iPhone 5 not sending texts when abroad.

2: Seeker
iPhone 5 on contract with VDF. When in UK I can receive and send text messages (inc iMessages) without problem. However when I go abroad I can receive texts OK but I cannot send texts. The Message Send Failure comes up and Not Delivered. iMessages works OK. The VDF shops seem to be helpless in providing a resolution. The thing is that you can only test if it works when you go abroad - only to find it does not work. My wife has O2 which works perfectly.
Any Expert at VDF who can help solve this?

Hi Martin975,


If you're both roaming on the same network, that would rule out local network issues.
