Warning for foreigners using True SIM to receive sms (otp) from their banks

I've read bits and pieces of the thread so this is perhaps unrelated and left field....

So I'm also with True.

Oz bank Westpac.

Recently I cannot pay anyone that I have not previously paid.

Requires OTP which does not appear in my messages.

So I had a new payee to attend to. Was not even going to bother. Point of difference was that it was a government body. Land taxes.

Gave it a try and no problem received a OTP to phone.

Wonders never cease.

To any other (new) payee it does not work.

... ^ well, in my case True is still for A&F, I mean utterly useless ... btw., goes for DTAC as well at least at the moment - and that had worked for close to a decade before ...

 

Disastrous failure!

Yes  I have had similar thoughts about this...Just another way the Oz government is trying to make it more difficult for people to live outside the country.

I have the same problem with AIS. Bank is in Cyprus, stopped receiving OTP messages. Not possible to resolve, AIS keeps saying not their problem. It is obviously being blocked on the Thai gateway working above the mobile operators.

If it is urgent, you might try to travel to the Thai borders and connect to one of the operators from the neigbouring countries and use roaming to receive the OTP SMS through them.
