can't text specific number iPhone 5

I have an unlocked iPone.  Have not had a single problem with it, albiet this one.

 

For some reason I can't text a specific international cell - Amy.

 

I purchased this handset in the US and text Amy with no problem.

 

Since returning to NZ I have not be able to text her.

 

Today, I swapped sim cards with my flatmates iPhone.  With my SIM in my flatmates iPhone I was success in texting Amy.  With his SIM in my iPhone I couldn't text her.

 

Help!!!!

can't text specific number iPhone 5

Hi dlmilla.

 

Are you trying to send via iMessage or via traditional SMS?

How does the number looks when you trying from your phone? Do you have the countryprefix before the number?

 

Exempel, here in Sweden our country prefix for telephonenumber is +46. So if I am outside the country, say Germany, then I need to but the +46 before the number if I will contant someone with a swedish SIM.

 

Here you have list of countrycodes  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Country_calling_code

 

Hope that helped.

can't text specific number iPhone 5

I am trying to send vis traditional. My friend does not have an iPhone.

 

I have entered her in my contacts as as +1 (123) 123-4567.   After reading your email I decided to try something.  I deleted her contact from my phone.  I then manually entered +1 (123) 123-4567.  When I tabed to the mess window the number displayed as 1231234567.  I did the same thing with a differnt number [+1 (987) 987-6543) and when I tabed to the message window the number stayed the same [+1 (987) 987-6543). 

 

Have no idea why my phone drops the +1 from my freinds number.

 

Any suggestions?
