O2/Tesco Mobile


First and foremost, I should probably tell you that I am with Tesco Mobile,
which is not on the drop down menu.

However, I have an account at and have sent messages from there to my
mobile phone, and all works fine. So I should be able to use that, right? Only
when I try it from Livejournal I don't receive anything I send. I've set it as
O2 (formerly BTCellnet) and put down my username (bofbanoff). Is there anything
I have to tick at the O2 website, because I have looked but can't see anything,
or do I actually have to have an O2 phone (Tesco Mobile is 50:50 Tesco plc and
O2 - they share the same signal).

Any help would be much appreciated, as I am very close to tearing my hair out in

Many thanks,


P.S. sorry about the header, IE crashed on me the first time around and I must have forgotten to re-enter it. Hopefully this works this time around.
