Bill Shock...

Thai mobile phone subscribers told how avoid expensive roaming fees, switch off roaming


Link Here 24th December 2013

Thailand's telecoms regulator has launched a special number to allow mobile phone users to protect themselves from being overcharged for data roaming whilst abroad.

National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) secretary-general Takorn Tantasit said that mobile phone users can now dial *106# to shut down mobile data services before leaving for trips abroad.

Phone users who use the new service will receive a short message from their mobile phone operator confirming that data has been switched off and providing a number to call to reactivate data again when they return home.

The free of charge service was conceived after around 1,000 mobile phone users lodged complaints with the NBTC after being charged extortionate data roaming fees.

Thai immigration now give 30 days entry at land border crossings for passport holders from selected western countries


Link Here 20th November 2013
Passport holders from several western countries will now be given 30 day entry stamps at land borders. Previously only 15 day stamps were available for westerners without visas. Entry stamps at airports will continue to be 30 days.

The new concession is available to people with passports from US, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Canada, and Japan. People from Russia already enjoy 30 day entries at land borders.

There are also a few countries that accord Thais visa less visits so by way of reciprocation, get 90 day stamps at borders.
