    Default Incoming service/provider SMS'

    Hi all,

    it looks like the iPhone is not capable of receiving/interpreting certain service SMS'.

    On a HW unlocked phone I can:
    -Receive SMS sent by any other phone to me
    -Receive Flash SMS' (like remaining credit notifications on prepaid SIMs)

    I do not receive:
    -SMS notifications for new voice messages or missed calls
    -Provider notifications (like subscription changes et al).

    I have tested this with 2 different iPhones on Swisscom and TIM (Italy), being with regular subscription, being with prepaid SIM.

    I believe this to be an iPhone issue and unrelated to unlocking.

    Anybody else seeing this?

    Thanks.

    But does the iPhone itself show you you've missed a call in the screen, which almost any phone will do?

    So while still a hassle cause you dont know if the caller left a voicemail, you can at least see someone had tried to call?

    not if they call while you are out of service area.

    I am getting missed call notifications from Optus in Aus. if I am out of service, so i can confirm one kind of service provider alert.

    "xxxx xxx xxx called. No VoiceMail message was left. For more info on this feature, free call 147......etc"

    As doug_jnr said, not if you are unreachable or the phone is off.

    Furthermore this also affects service notifications via SMS which seem to have the same format.
