I can't receive my SMS code because I'm overseas. What do I do?

If you have roaming enabled, then you should still be able to receive SMS codes. If you don’t have it enabled or you’ve left your phone at home, you can give us a call on +61 8 9449 2840.

Don’t forget, you’ll only need SMS code for certain transactions.
