Can I receive SMS without activating roaming?

Hi there, 


I’m on postpaid plan, and planning to go overseas for travel.

Can I receive SMS without activating roaming service during stay in overseas?  Just receiving SMS.


Also, can I put a temporary stop on my postpaid service? If available, is my contract day going to be postponed automatically?

Re: Can I receive SMS without activating roaming?



Sorry to say the answer to both is no.

For those friends who want to contact you by SMS WhatsApp is a good alternative and you will pick these messages up when you are in wifi range.
