Nawras and UK networks??!!!!


Hello,

Just a question…

Why does Nawras have contracts and dealings with some UK Mobile Networks/companies and don’t have with others?

I mean it makes hard to us who are in the UK and those who are having Nawras mobiles to send and received text messages!

For example, any one with Nawras can send texts to any network in UK but they cannot receive from any network from UK…its so annoying…which means its either us in here having to change the network sim card or the people in Oman changing to Oman mobile…

Anyone, knows any explanation to this kind of arrangements?

You can't send a msg to Nawras from an O2 number, but you can from Lyca (for 10p per msg)

It can happen at times...not all telco agreements are reciprocal.

See http://www.nawras.om/nawras_network_international_sms_guide_europe.shtml for networks in UK that support Send and Receive from Nawras.

That includes Orange, T-Mobile and Vodafone, but O2 is Send Only.

So you have to be sure that you're switched into a UK network that will support your SMS. And Nawras admits that not all telcos are supporting them.

Happy New Year on an extremely cold and foggy day in UK.
