ATT Prepaid SIM card and receiving SMS in Ukraine

Hello,

 

I have a SIM card with Prepaid plan. Everything works ok in USA.

But now I'm in Ukraine and cant receive SMS on my number.

I will return to USA but now I need receive only ONE sms with code for my application.

I relly need this SMS.

Is there any way to turn on roaming feature to receive only 1 SMS?

I can change my plan to another but I dont know which will work for my task.

Please help.

Re: ATT Prepaid SIM card and receiving SMS in Ukraine

Att prepaid only works in North America.  Only postpaid plans can roam internationally,   You cannot change plans to one that will work outside the USA, until you are back in the USA.

It’s not weird.  It’s a limit of ATT prepaid.  Most prepaid plans limit service in some way.  Many cannot roam abroad.
