    Anyone konws how to invite a oversee friend into the family room? I tried to invite my friend staying abroad, but it keeps reporting that the text message cannot be sent.

    So I doubt it is because I cannt send sms to a foreign mobile number, and I cannot find other methods to do the invitation.

    Anyone who gets a good idea?

    Weird. I was able to send a text to two friends in Australia from here in California. Is it possible that it's in your cell phone contract not to send texts abroad? Maybe someone with more experience in this can chime in.

    I'm in a "Room" with a few people and there are overseas participants. You do have to send via text as Sam indicated. Is it possible that you have International SMS blocked, since it does cost to send them?

    I thought you could also send the invite through email?
