This is a weird one! I'm with O2, so can't ask them for help as the Hero is not on their support list. Everytime I'm in Germany and my friend tries to text me (using a Sony-Ericsson phone) vis the 3 network, she gets an error message saying that the text has failed. As a result, I can't receive any texts from her when abroad. This problem has only started since I started using the Hero. Anybody else experienced this when roaming and being sent an sms from the 3 network? Thanks, Dem.
