If you do find that you are having a consistent problem with a certain country or network we'd like to know about it. Drop us a line at email@example.com and we can look into it for you. It will also help if your overseas friend does the same at their end and lets their network know that they want to link up to 2degrees in New Zealand. And remember, you can still call overseas networks on 2degrees, it's just texting that sometimes isn't quite set up.
