How to receive mt sms message online? I'm in China now and completely lost sms access...


I think I need roaming..The passport plan.

But after I click the link it always takes me back to the login page and then to the account home page. And when I click the help and type in roaming, the search page always makes me sign off. So I cannot access the actual payment portal.

I'm using prepaid plan. And now since I cannot receive sms, I cannot login facebook and google, because they all require sms verifying.


By the way, is there a way to see my sms online?

You can’t buy a passport plan. Prepaid does not roam internationally except Canada and Mexico. Also, no, there is no way to see your sms online.

Roaming is expensive and useless. From my point of view, you should buy a virtual number for SMS. You can take it with Hottelecom, a proven service. If necessary, you can redirect SMS to email.
