I know how to send a paid text message to the UK, if I want to. But this is not the issue or the question.

(Please use my correct name. Thank you).
Then google it yourself, if you're going to get in a strop.

I can't figure out who the operator is for the 07 code you gave, "Ben"

Time to experiment! Send a brief e-mail, ca 120 characters, counting spaces and punctuation to [email protected] and kindly report back

Hi - what is your name? You have not told us, so I used part of your username, as is common.

Best of luck in your continued search.

Not necessarily (and I didn't).
Perhaps you are unaware that Google does not produce the same results for everyone.

Cricket cellphone plans include international text messaging for no additional costs and their plans are really cheap, only $55 for smartphones.

I'm on the $15/month plan from T-Mobile US, giving me unlimited messaging and 10c a minute for actual phone calls. For ten bucks more, I'd get:

unlimited calls to landlines in over 50 countries, unlimited texting to any mobile phone in over 200 countries, and unlimited texting and discounted calling to landlines and mobile phones in over 150 countries,

I can't justify such a large expense for my very limited needs so I have a Tracfone, which costs me $6.50 a month to keep any minutes, perpetually.
