Any new news? Is it working for anyone? If so, does it depend on which part
of the country you are?

It's unsupported, still. So it's an "either it works, or it
doesn't" situation, and not much more available on it.

What's the deal. Why can't any of the know-it-all SprintPCS employees,
dealers, apologists and hangers-ons have an authoritative answer?

A message from the Cingular Group may spread some light, or not.

Why from the Cingular group?
Right now I have a Sprint phone 5300 $50/700 Vision FC&A with 23% employee
discount for all my voice calls and I had to get a prepaid cingular just to
send text messages overseas? I hate cingular and I am happy with Sprint so I
want Sprint to provide true international SMS instead of carrying two
phones.

(Sorry, I did not like the "A message from the Cingular Group may spread
some light, or not" response from rmarkoff). I think it is STUPID). What
does cingular have to do with Sprint SMS?

Try reading the whole message. One fellow said it was a function of
cellular company to cellular company agreements. If thats the case, it
doesn't depend what part of the country you are in.

Back to the original question: Does anyone know the answer?
***********************************************
And for rmarkoff:
There are people in howardforums saying they can send SMSs from Minneapolis
but not from Boston, so apparently it does depend on the location (maybe not
all the equipment has been upgraded yet nationwide?) Hence my question.
Now, do you have an answer for my question. Do we have an update on the
status of overseas SMS and Sprint? When is it going to work? Or is it never
going to work?

Again, childishly calling everyone a liar. I am not the original poser
of the question. If its not supported then why how do you explain it
does work for some??

Does any current U.S cellular carrier support international SMS?

It's unsupported, still. So it's an "either it works, or it
doesn't" situation, and not much more available on it.

I'd imagine T-Mobile does, since Deutsche Telekom would probably want
T-Mobile USA customers to be able to communicate with T-Mobile customers
in other countries, and I'm almost sure Verizon Wireless does. I've never
tried international SMS from VZW and I don't have an account with T-Mobile,
so you may want to check with the carriers themselves...

Then why does it work at all if its unsupported?

Or is it another thing like using a cell phone as a modem which is also
"unsupported" wink-wink-nudge-nudge.

Now you're getting desperate to look silly. You've succeeded on this
one.

Ask 3GUpload. WAPDrive. MatrixM.

None of them are supported, either. But there is no express
restriction against those uses.

A reasonable person could determine the difference for themselves
with just a few seconds' concerted thought. But, as you've already
proven multiple times, you are neither reasonable nor thoughtful, so
I can understand why you couldn't determine that.

Dishonest cut and pasting. We were talking about
using a phone as a modem, and whether that was the same
double speak as international SMS.

Here is the WHOLE post, before your dishonest cut and paste:

SO again the original question remains, and you always ignbore questions
when you can invent a reason for insuults on your midnight run of inults:

Why does some overseas SMS go through if its not supported???

No, Phillie. Look at the thread title.

Of course, a liar like you is going to change that now.

Only T-Mobile has it.

I had one user call in and claim Verizon supports it, too. I don't
know the truth of that.

Verizon: 25c for sending international SMS (supports it, web site has a list
of supported networks)
http://www.vtext.com/customer_site/jsp/messaging_lo.jsp (click on
international txt msg)

AT&Y: 25c for sending internations SMS (supports it, web site has a list of
supported networks)
http://www.attwireless.com/personal/features/communicat...;dsessionid=5MT4EK2HWWD21B4R0H0CFFA

Cingular: 5c on prepaid, 10c in regular plans (not 100% sure about the 10c)
(supports it, web site has a list of supported networks but it is very
outdated)
http://www.cingular.com/beyond_voice/universal_text

In all plans above international SMS do not come from your pre-paid
bucket, i. e, if you have paid 2.99 for 100 SMS, you are still charged for
the int;l SMS (although I know people from Cingular that claim that they
don't get charged extra)

True, Rob always said it may work but it is unsupported.

So looks like everyone supports it but Sprint. Maybe Sprint will catch
up soon :-)

(I hope someone will not use the word liar again)

I hope this info is useful
