Since OTP codes are sent to Thai mobile nos. that do not function outside of Thailand (I can't just add +66 to them), and I am one of those now marooned abroad, is there a workaround to be able to receive them from abroad and thus carry out banking transactions etc. ?

Which carrier are you with?

 

May be possible to turn on roaming via USSD e.g. for Dtac use this code *118*9# call, for AIS try *125 call or *125*1# call.

But I don't have roaming and you can't receive an SMS via WIFI, or...?

I have an AIS sim. I do not have roaming and get OTP codes when required to log onto my AIS account here in Australia.

 

When I turn my phone on it searches for and connects to a network and it works fine for OTP codes

Then you have Roaming. No Roaming means no OTP codes.

How will they do that if Roaming is not switched on?? They need to call the carrier, to ask if they can switch it on whilst they out of the country.

USSD code work without roaming enabled.

I am with AIS. I don't really want to incur roaming charges each time I want to do some kind of transaction, not only banking

 

Only insert the Thai SIM when required (unless you have a dual SIM phone in which case use the settings to ensure your home SIM is used by default),

I do have a dual SIM phone. So, use a local SIM then insert the Thai SIM for the operation? How does this avert the roaming charges issue? Will I receive the OTP as an SMS via the AIS SIM?
