dO i need to do anything to be able to recieve sms overseas

Im heading to  South Africa /Botswana / Zimababwe next week.

I will buy a local sim when I arrive.  However i will need to be able to recieve international SMS texts from Australia (ie for internet banking)  I dont need  data and i dont need to make  calls or send sms. Just recieve.

Do i need to do anything or will it just work?

Re: dO i need to do anything to be able to recieve sms overseas

Receiving SMS while overseas should not be a problem. No need to take additional steps to ctivate it, as "roaming" in enabled by default anyway. You just won't be able to make/receive calls, make sms, or use data., if you don't have roaming credit on your account.

 

I do the same approach, when I travel abroad. I get a local sim for calls/data, and use Boost sim for receiving SMS only.
