AIS: Top-up from abroad? How-to

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, 

 

I have an AIS sim that I would like to top up with ~ 2000 baht. I'm currently not in Thailand. Is there an internet solution that works with my Mastercard? I tried the top-up service within the AIS ecosystem (logged in) but I get declined at all top-up attempts (I guess they don't accept foreign cards?). 

 

Thanks 🙂

I'm unable to access my Thai Bank app at the moment because the OTP can't reach me. 

Why 2000: it's just a number but partly I need to extend validity and 2000 is the ~ the price for the package I would like to buy when landing at BKK.

Then when landing do it …, as then your OTP shall work,.....and set  your roaming free when going back out of Thailand so your OTP can be received abroad

For AIS   *125*1#  =Turn on International Roaming

Super helpful but it will go unvalidated if I wait until I land. 

 

 

When are you landing? How many months away?

Could try the code now …. it might work as it is a service instruction number for your Thai sim number...who knows …?

if you load your AIS  sim with x times 20 baht you get each time 1 month call credit (and 2 months keep alive number ) don't put example 100 baht at once …. unless you should have like my 10 years old card "Mao Mao" who gives 1 year for 100 baht upload at once .

no mentioning there is no credit , credit nothing to do with time expiring , and not all service numbers need credit

So to which code are you referring? The International Roaming ON code?

As he said "I tried the top-up service within the AIS ecosystem (logged in) but I get declined at all top-up attempts "

 

I supposed he is in the AIS system , so MAYBE  putting the code for receiving call & messages abroad  could work to let him so receive the OTP  password.

 

The code I refer to is the one for using phone abroad Thailand .

There is another code for blocking data use abroad as very expensive some country's 

 

Not an expert but surprisingly I found out things just by trying , nothing to loose I would say

Totally confused by your reply. Perhaps I'll leave it at that.

 

Still waiting for him to reply on how long it will be before his landing....
