    Texting from Europe

    I am in Europe and seem to be stuck.

    Bought a local French SIM card that came with texting ability
    but can't sort out how to use it.

    My phone has both the standard texting program as well as
    the Handcent app. Each worked fine in California, but no luck here.

    I do not have a data package with this SIM; is that the problem?

    Phone is new and has not been hacked or rooted.

    Do I need a app that does not require the Internet to run?


    Thanks!

    No, a data package doesn't have anything to do with texting. Are you sure you're typing in the destination number correctly (i.e., if you're texting the US, it should be +1 then the area code and number. For France, it would be +33 6, and then the rest of the number.)? Also, you may need to check that the SMS gateway number you've got is the right one for your SIM card.

    I bought my nexus 1 in the US and used it no problem over there. Now I'm in the Netherlands using a prepaid sim card and texting with handcent, haven't experienced any issues so far. I would also suggest making sure you are using the right country codes and everything,
