How to have my phone number active abroad, without roaming?

Say goodbye to all worries about your phone number active abroad and missed text messages or calls, even when you are on the road.

When you’re moving abroad, one of the biggest challenges is to keep your phone number active. You can’t rely only on messaging platforms like WhatsApp, Telegram, or even Skype. Why? Because banks, finance companies, and PayPal usually check user identity by text messaging. Lack of access to your phone number means you could lose access to your bank or PayPal account.

So how can you continue using your phone number even when you’re abroad?
