How Much Do Internationl Text Messages Cost From iPhone On ATT Wireless

I have been doing some business with people overseas and sometimes we communicate via text message so I needed to verify how much it cost to send text messages from my iPhone on ATT Wireless’s network to cell phones overseas. In my specific case I wanted to verify sending text messages from the United States to London, England or the United Kigdom. After looking around a bit I found that only certain countries are supported and it costs $0.25 per text message. Below I have listed some more resources and information on picture messaging.

Cisco IOS: Forward Called Teclo DID To An Extension, Translate, Translation-Rule Limitation

A client of mine had a Cisco 2811 installed before I started working for them so I had to go over the configuration to become familiar with things. One of the Cisco IOS configuration items used was translation-rule which will allow 10 to 15 Rules to be created under each translation-rule. In this scenario they were using translation-rule to forward external DID’s from their telco provider┬áto internal extensions. This works fine except for the fact that if you have more than 10 (in this case) external numbers you won’t be able to continue to forward them to internal extensions without complicating the configuration using multiple dial plans, etc. The easiest way to get away from the translation-rule being used in this way is to assign t he external DID telephone numbers as secondary numbers under each extension configuration as explained below.
