What data/pack/add-on to receive 1 text whilst in Australia?

I'm currently in Australia and need to receive a single text to re-activate another account (airbnb) to get a code!  I have an Australian sim here, therefore wont be needing any other data/roaming/texts from EE whilst in Aus.  What the cheapest option available for the single text and what is the name of the pack/add-on I need to buy?  Ideally I'd just like to pay for the text, but seems there are only 7 day and 30 day packs now.  What is the best option?  Many thanks.

You don't need any! Receiving texts anywhere in the world are always free. Anyway Packs are only valid within the EU.

Thankyou for your reply.  For some reason receiving the text isnt working, so thought I'd need credit.  I'll try pursuing this with Airbnb. thanks.

Hi @Teal

 

Welcome to the community, I hope you're having a brilliant time in Australia. 🙂

 

Let us know what Airbnb say and if you get this sorted out.

 Yes, AirBNB have sorted this and reactivated my account.  I suspect a glitch at their end was causing me to not receive the text codes.

Thankyou for your replies.
