Recommended Posts

hi guys i would like any info regarding dial tone when im in thialand ,on people ringing me while in thailand,

i usually roam my phone due to family and work,

the international ring tone that people hear while ringing you :ie long beeps

instead of ring ring.....

 

people usually know im overseas when they call me , due to the different ring tone ...'

 

any solutions? maybee divert all calls to a aussie number back at home and let it ring out , with normal ringtone ,and get a text on to who has called, ring back with roaming number, no one will suspect a thing.....

 

any other ideas? will my plan work?

any other solutions?

Would one of those annoying songs that play instead of the ring work???

Maybe route everything to Voicemail, and then call the people back when you get a message that you have a voicemail waiting. Messy. but not sure there is an easy way around this.

Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination

I bought a phone with SIM in Thailand

I bought at a shop and asked them to set up

They also adived the NUMBER to dial out for CHEAPEST rate

Just left MY phone in the SAFE

Checked it when I got up , or when I was next in room

Cheaper to call back on THAI sim phone anyway :Think1:

Like your Style and know where you coming from 555

 

What I have done is set up calls to divert straight to Voice Mail with the normall Shit say I am busy etc

 

I then get alerted saying I have a message or whatever and ringing them back just feed them some Crap saying sorry I was tied up 5555

 

Problem with this is if no message left then I haven't a clue who rang.

 

Dependant on how you fixed can say Phone was broke or lost 555 this can only work a couple of times But work it does 55555

if you dont answer in thailand and you are romaing the callers will hear a Thai voice,,,,,so if they recognize thai they will know you are here.

 

There is a service which lets you choose a number in whatever country you want, with a dedicted call center answering, saying whatever you order them to say. andonly patch through the calls you want. a bit pricey but does the job, noone will be wiser......

Why you don't want people to know you're in Thailand ?

Don't you tell them you go for the temples and to play golf ....... ?

Hi Swissbanker

 

I tried to do the same with peoplephone.ch and netvoip.ch - rerouting per VOIP on a Thai mobile number. But the quality of calls I received in Thailand was mostly very bad and a good share (about 20%) didn't ring at all.

 

Did you try receiving calls in Thailand with Skype? How was the quality?

Sorry... I can't resist this comment 555++!

 

To get back on track, thanks for the ideas around Skype, I'll do a bit of research on this and see if it'll work out for me.
