Hi I have a monthly uk package am on secondment in South Korea and need to receive texts only for bank verification purposes - I dont need roaming or anything else as I have been given a South Korean number.
I opted for no roaming as my dual sim phone once set EE for data and I got stung with a large bill. I was told though I could still receive texts but I dont, Its not the banks as I tried sending texts from another phone amd they didnt arrive.
Is it the no roaming setting or any ideas how to fix this?

Hi the whole point is that I had to turn off roaming to avoid stupid data roaming charges as my phone kept turni g data on against my will. I was told texts could still be received. So you are saying I lose the ability to receive texts as well? That sucks!

With roaming deactivated, your phone won't be able to connect to a South Korean network to receive your text messages.
You can still turn roaming data off in your phone's settings. If you need any help with this, just let me know which phone you are using.
