I will enable roaming on my on-account voda mobile.

It would be nice to transfer funds while overseas.

Are Netcode messages from ASB expected to receive ok?

Netcode aside - If I do not turn on the mobile the whole time I am away will txts and so on be stored until I return?

What is the maximum time a txt will live on the servers until it is deleted without being delivered?

Other questions. Just reading the Standard plan - it is very clear that receiving txt is not charged for at all. No problems there.

The Traveller plan description is less clear. It does not specify a charge for receiving but it does not specifically state receiving is free.

Can anyone clarify that?

All incoming SMS are not charged unless they are a premium SMS and these would be charged the same like you are still in NZ

I have used ASB netcode when roaming

SMS are stored for 72 hours and then expire

Just to expand a tiny bit, a standard text message doesn't use data so you'll receive it regardless of whether you have roaming switched on or not, and regardless of what plan you are on.

Not correct you need roaming active to attach to a foreign carrier to get incoming SMS

Thank you, johnr.

Corksta, maybe you had the prepay roaming experience. Prepay roaming is enabled by default.

Called voda to check my roaming status. They say I'm on an updated smart plan and roaming for that is enabled by default. Nice.

I was initially on hold for a bit long - but it is Friday just before lunch.

So damn good to talk to an NZ based helpdesk. It must be cutting call handling time by nearly half.
