Hi @Koiboy 

 

As long as the SIM is active, then yes. 

 

Thanks

Re: Can I receive texts when using pay as you go sim in thailand ?

Thanks for the reply but for some reason I am not receiving txts from the uk. My friend has sent but I have not received. I have attempted to send to him, it wouldn’t go as an I message ( blue) but went as a txt (green), not sure if I have them the right way around, but my friend never received anything !!!

Hi @Koiboy,

 

Welcome to the community 🙂

 

Do you know of anyone else who has sent you a text or is it only the one person?

 

Have you been able to access any data while you've been in Thailand?

 

You can turn off iMessage so all of your messages are sent and received as texts while you are out of the UK.

 

 

Alex 🙂

Hi. The bank attempted to message me and failed. I haven’t actually used the sim for data here yet as I have been using my other phone with a local sim in it. I need the other sim for banking moves etc when they want to send me a code to prove who I am.

Hi @Koiboy

 

Are you able to make and receive calls OK?

 

Could you try manually connecting to a different Thai mobile operator?
