On Christmas day a friend sent a group message wishing us a Merry Christmas. It was an image of a Christmas Tree so I assume it was an MMS. I replied to the group with a standard text.
My bill shows the reply to the 5 friends (originating from my local Melbourne suburb) plus another with exact same time but originating from Switzerland. Was charged an International Direct - SMS fee of 50 cents.
How it is possible that my reply generated an SMS from Switzerland?
