I can't figure this out. Appreciate any help out there.

I hope this is clear - I just got my iPhone and I'm in the US - tried texting overseas to Malaysia, using for example, 01160123456789 or +60123456789. It gets there alright, but when ppl reply, the text arrives in a different thread with the exact phone number but with the + added so it becomes +01160123456789. When I reply or send directly to +01160123456789 the text doesn't get there. Any idea what I should do?

Thanks!

its being pass to a different provider when they text you, so you'll receive the txt and you on the other hand is using a different one, it only goes oneway.;)
