      Sky text message service centre numbers - what are they?

      I need to setup my BT phone with the message centre numbers that are used by Sky to send and receive text messages.

      I have been speaking to Sky for 30 minutes and they cannot (or will not) release the numbers. I was told that Sky do not offer the facility of sending and receiving text messages despite their own website saying that Sky Talk DOES provide this service!

      is anyone able to provide the service centre numbers used by Sky to send and receive text messages?

      thanks

      Basically if you are on the full SVBN then texting does not work....yet another one of those 'innovations' from Sky we keep hearing about!!

      Now that there are so many alternatives to SMS there isn't really any incentive for teli'ncos to introduce this feature. The only independent provider (Bizzyline) ceased trading a few years ago, probably forced out of the market by BT.
