Can you text premium SMS numbers 5XXXX when you have credit with 48?

I don't think so. Others have tried and failed. The price list does not make it clear whether or not they work. I don't think that 48 supports them.

 

Hope this helps.

Thanks for that, couldn't see anything from 48 in the posts about them. It's a pity you can't use your credit to text these numbers - will figure out a way to do it!

We don’t allow the texting or calling premium rate numbers on 48.

Hello, I put credit in my account thinking that I could text my local radio station (51553) using it. It should surely be possible, even if it cost €0.30, because on some of the programmes I cannot email. Regards - C

48 don't allow sending of texts to 5XXXX Premium SMS numbers unfortunately. Even if you have cash credit on your account.

Hope this helps.

I had the same experience as CarmelUi. Can’t understand why it’s not possible to Topup credit and use it to text so called “premium numbers”

Because 48 simply don't support sending texts to premium SMS numbers as I already said.
