Receiving sms messages whilts overseas


I am using my company's paid phone as my personal phone because I dont like to carry 2 phones. Now,  I'll be going overseas for 4 months, and I am not too sure if I can get the SMS's from my Bank whilst I am there. 

Does anybody know how to get SMS's from the banks in Australia when you are abroad?

That will depend on a few things:

  • the country(s) that you are going to
  • the plan that your phone is on
  • the restrictions that your company has placed on the phone service (they may have blocked international roaming altogether)
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

With direct debit there’s no need to give paying your bill another thought.

Avoid queuing up and never worry about late fees again.
