Cannot send text to IoT (+882) SIM

I have just purchased an IoT SIM card for a tracker. To configure the device I need to send SMS messages to it. The SIM card as a phone number starting with +882, this is a non geographic international dialling code reserved for things like the Internet of Things (IoT). However when I try and send texts using my Sky mobile I get the error "could not send message". I can send texts to my ordinary contacts without any problems. My Sky SIM is in my Samsung phone. Can anyone help?

Hi @Jeff-S  have you looked at your spend cap ? If this is an international number then any text message would be chargeable, if your spend cap is zero then the message won't send. 





If someone has helped give them a thumbs up.

If their answer solved your issue mark it as the correct answer.

I won’t respond to direct messages so please post any problems on the forum.

Hi @63johnw 

My spend limit is set to £10 so I don't think this can be the problem
