I have a friend in the military currently stationed in Japan, the friend recently got a phone so we exchanged numbers so we could text. Problem is; they're telling me they sent a few texts but I haven't got one. I have a blackberry tour and they have an iphone, fwiw. Anyone have any idea why I'm not getting the texts? Any similar experiences, maybe? Is there something either of us needs to do? They've texted (is that a word?) other people here in the states and it worked.
Will it cost me extra money to text someone in another country? How does this work?
