Text messaging help please...

As per title, can I ask for some help as am rubbish with technology!

Simply put, I would like to send some txts so a friend of mine living in France. I've tried just entering the number she gave me and sending but that keeps failing, so do I need to prefix the number with something etc?

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Andy

    If she didn't give you the international code then yeah you'll have to add that yourself

    think you may need to take out the first "0" of the number and replace it with 44

    Although her phone may not work abroad either ?

    Take out the first zero if there is one, and add 33.

    Great, thanks Drab, will give that a go and see if that works.

    Franko, I tried the 44 thing already mate, didn't seem to work....

    Thanks,

    Andy.
