Traveling to europe with dtac iphone. does OTP system KTB bank work

Recommended Posts

I need to take my thai phone to possible transfer money online via ktb to pay staff etc. Does the OTP system work overseas?

 

We will take another spare phone and get a swiss and german sim card to access wifi etc. 

 

If we use the hotel wifi on the thai phone over there will it cost us dearly?

 

thanks

Works for SCB and Bangkok Bank so long as I pay , I think, 12 Baht per year to enable roaming, so I see no reason that it wouldn't work for KTB

 

SMS messages are free to send and receive so there is really no down side to it, just don't answer voice calls, since they can be expensive for the sender

While roaming, receiving SMS is free, but sending? Please check with the Telco.

AIS charges for sending SMS while roaming.

I have used Kasikorn successfully but you must tell them you are going overseas and make sure you enable roaming on your Thai sim. Wi -fi not acceptable. (In my experience)

I have used Dtac and Kasikorn bank (OTP) several times from Europe.  Just make sure its open for roaming, a quick call to 1678 and they will assist you.

By default, at least the pre-paid numbers, are not enabled for roaming. Like Balo said, it's easily fixed by calling DTAC service centre.

If you use the "DTAC Wifi Calling" app, and are on wifi - anybodies wifi including foreign 3g, 4g, etc, the calls made will be charged, or deducted from your prepaid credit, as if they originated in Thailand. So, calls, SMS, etc. to a Thai number will be charged at local rates.

Whatsapp calls are free, if they connect.

Yes, it does work. I have a Kasikorn savings account and set up internet banking years ago. I don't ever remember setting anything special up for the SMS. It is done over WiFi as I have mobile data switched off for my DTAC SIM. I think it costs 12 baht for the SMS each time.

Certainly works in other South-East Asian countries (so should work in Europe too) I have been using my KTB debit card all over the region without telling the bank anything, neither do I enable roaming. I briefly insert my Dtac Sim in the phone to receive the OTP, not sure whether I am charged for the text, but it can't be much or I would have noticed.

I use it when i go home to the US for Kasikorn.... I keep my Thai AIS sim in the phone although I dont think it matters as long as I have Wifi...... I always use it on Wifi.......In the US........ (I use it a lot...........)

edited to add.... You may have better luck with your 'original' Thai sim card and Hotel or Home Wifi......... With Wifi turned 'on' on your phone......... Possibly with 'cellular' turned off..........

Assuming you've enabled international roaming (before leaving Thailand is ideal), have a local signal from a DTAC partner, and the number is properly registered with Kasikorn then you should be able to receive OTP SMSes sent to your Thai number. Maybe best to turn off mobile data when roaming outside of Thailand to avoid sticker shock.

The DTAC app can also be used to enable IR.

DTAC Call is an option but you will need a WiFi signal (hotel, open, or a hotspot from the spare phone using mobile data)

Regarding mobile data you just ask Dtac to deactivate it outside of Thailand. Or you have to manually switch it off to avoid a hefty bill.

 I seem to get stuck on using the phone apps abroad and usually Finnish up using the call centre. It's good for sending to existing people but the OTP codes don't send out properly for other transactions, am I doing something wrong?
