Setting Up Phone for Leaving

Recommended Posts

I got my SIM in September and bought a 6 month AIS unlimited net package. Every once in a while I top up  for the phone calls.

 

Im leaving soon, and want to keep this number active. I might not be back till November. How do I make sure my number doesnt expire. And, for one time codes, do I set up text message roaming?

Maybe top up your credits and opt for the cheapest monthly package to be automatically deducted from your account or last resort is the yearly package for 1200 baht .I'm in the same boat as you but I'm just putting some credits but letting my package lapsed and hopefully when I'm back Im still eligible for the Mao Mao package.

last time I went outside Thailand for a holiday (2 years ago) I called the AIS customer service number and set up roaming for the bank SMS OTP messages and regular phone calls to my thai phone number...seems to me that you can call them and tell them what you wanna do and they can advise the best arrangement for yer purposes re: keeping yer number active when gone long term and etc...call 1175, very helpfull with good english language skill...

If you go to one of those phone top up boxes you can add 10 baht and extend validity by 1 month with AIS. Do as many times as required to get 1 year validity.

 

It's 12 baht per top up, but that will do the trick.

Get loads of coins and head to a Family Mart or 7/11. Get a friendly passerby to help you out with the machine. Usually orange, sometimes purple. 

Keep topping up until your validity shows one year from that day.

Don't let your SIM die, as any new SIM registered from the 1st of Feb(apart from DTAC) gets the new limited plans.

Friend told me Some banks can do the otp code to your email instead of sms

Download the MyAIS app, link your debit card to it then top up 10 baht which will give you 30 day validity, do that 12 times.
