SMS on Curve: delivery icon and + sign

I am trying to text someone in Cambodia.

 

The person I'm texting sends me a text message fine.  His text SMS number is +855 xxxxxxxxx displayed in the received message.  If i respond to his message, he receives it.  However, if I copy his SMS number to his contact info, and try to initiate an SMS message, he never receives it.

 

A separate colleague, in the same country, has an SMS number of 011 855 xx xxx xxx.  He receives SMS from the Blackberry address book fine.  

 

So what is the difference?  They are using the same network, and are in the same building.  I've tried to alter the number of the colleague's address who is not receiving the messages to match the 011 855 format, but that doesn't work either.

 

I've turned delivery notification option on and off to see if it makes a difference, but it doesn't.  When it's on, the message shows that it was sent, with a small dot above the check-mark.  What does the small dot mean? There is no documentation that I can find about these icons.

 

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks for your reply, but I have tried your suggestion and it was unsuccessful.  I know that the 011 was the US country code. 

 

 

Do you know what the dot over the check-mark represents?

The 011 is the prefix to long distance from Usa, for example if you want call to Spain, you need press 011 34 and the number.

 

The check mark in a sms represents the sms was sended correctly.

Re: SMS on Curve: delivery icon and + sign

the normal checkmark I understand. Thanks.  But above the checkmark on certain messages is a small dot. Only on certain messages.  I'm presuming that with the delivery report option on, it means that the message was sent, but not received.  That's one of the things I'm trying to verify.

Got it to work (sort of).  He is now receiving the sms messages with the + 855 xxx xxxx configuration.  Still don't know what the dot is over the checkmark after I send, and I still do not receive SMS messages that he is replying back with. But it's a start.

He merely responds to the message that he receives. He doesn't write any number.
