In the unlikely event that you are not able to receive SMS from WAYN it may be that your particular provider does not allow incoming SMS from internet services, or they do not have a connection with our providers networks. This is a very rare occurrence, but has been experienced by some on mobile networks in Eastern Europe and parts of South America or Asia.
The service should work fine on all networks in Central and Western Europe as well as Australasia and North America.
