Thank you for your reply. The problem has been solved. There was nothing wrong with my international roaming. I just discovered that my SMS notification had been disabled, as a result, I thought I could not receive SMS messages. Cheers!

I want to warn everyone TPG ROAMING IS A SCAM . I went overseas in January. At the first airport outside australia discovered that my sim is not working.  I activated roaming on 31st January.  My credit card was charged 499 dollars! I  was shocked by this amount but had to stay in touch with people at home .

It never worked. I cancelled it a few weeks later after complaining and trying to get them to fix it. I was told it was my phone's fault. The same phobe i used overseas with an optus card. I was told the refund would take weeks. Today is the 30 april i still haven't received the refund!!!

Hi @Dor,

 

Welcome to TPG Community!

 

We don't do such things to our customers as every information before activating the international roaming is posted on our website.

 

The $500 Prepaid Balance to cover the cost of international roaming usage is also posted. You may refer to this link for more information.

 

The amount was already credited to the account and will be refunded within 3 to 5 working days.

 

Should you require further assistance, please let us know.

 

Kind regards,
