Has anyone found a good alternative to T-Mobile for foreign travel to the Philippines with short codes? Shortcodes are the two step authentication that you get from Google or your bank. Capital One sends me a number code to authorize my account access. I had to call them over and over to get it to work in the Philippines. I'd like to get rid of T-Mobile because they keep charging me randomly for calling US numbers that I never called but that is another question 😭

    What's your beef with T-mobile? I've been to over a dozen countries in the last couple of years and T-Mobile has worked like a charm in every single one (including the Philippines). It's not fast, but it works automatically.

  • short codes are the codes you enter followed with a hashkey to get balances and stuff? Apr 8, 2023 at 13:07

    Some companies have alternatives to SMS for 2-factor authentication (e.g. a physical authentication device or a separate app), but some probably do not. This seems to be a question about authorisation processes for Capital One, so it maybe belongs on Personal Finance and Money SE. Have you tried contacting your bank?
