sms while overseas

Hi

I am in NZ and need to receive SMS with code numbers for banking and other stuff.

What exactly can I do to be able to receive SMS's? is activating data roaming on my network settings (android) enough? ...doesn;t seem to be working!

Anything to do on the Optus side (accounts settings, etc)?

Please help!

thanks!

Re: sms while overseas

Roaming should be turned on by default now, but its possible its off for you.

 

Read about it here

 

You should be able to check and change your roaming settings in your account

PS Turn off Mobile Data Roaming (that's not SMS) unless you want to pay some fairly expensive rates for it (Get a local SIM or use WIFI or buy a travel pack from Optus)
