TXT is a great way to stay in touch. Just go to messages, write your message on your mobile phone keypad then send it to other mobile phones in Australia or overseas.
You can send TXT overseas, providing Vodafone has a TXT agreement with the country you are sending to.
When sending a TXT overseas be sure to enter the number with country code including a “+” sign as shown below and then the phone number.
TXT can be sent to and received from the following countries.
TXT messages are charged on sending the TXT regardless on if delivery is successful. International TXT is only available with carriers with a TXT agreement with Vodafone Australia. Please note that where there is mobile number portability in a country, if a mobile user ports their number from one carrier to another and is no longer with the carrier which originally issued the number, if the original carrier does not re-route the TXT message to the new carrier the message may not be received.
A Standard TXT includes sending TXT messages from your mobile phone to any other mobile phone connected to a public mobile telecommunications network in Australia and any mobile phone connected to selected mobile telecommunications networks overseas. Standard TXT excludes, without limitation, TXT delivery status reports, Premium Services, Vodafone Central and SIM Toolkit services.
A Standard TXT consists of up to a maximum of 160 standard characters. Non-standard characters such as emoticons may use more characters (dependent on your handset) and may mean that your TXT message is equivalent to 2 or more Standard TXTs. Also, some handsets may convert TXT messages longer than 1 Standard TXT into a Standard PXT message (also known as MMS). If this happens you will be billed for a Standard PXT message. Check with the manufacturer of your handset or device for further details on this functionality.
Also known as SMS. Note that in Australia, TXT to the Pivotel network is not available.
