On Friday night I was trying to do a bank transfer from my Australian bank account to a friend. They sent me an SMS security code. I live in Thailand, so this was very frustrating, as I no longer have an Australian number.

I got really frustrated and spent the last 3 days building this. Nomad SMS allows you easily create a number in one of 15 countries for a few dollars a month. Any SMS sent to that number will then be forwarded to your email / viewable online in your account.

I hope others find value in this and I appreciate in feedback you have :)

@bryceadams I can definitely feel this pain. Would be great if the SMS could be forwarded to Hangouts, as that's where I receive GV, local SMS and obviously hangouts messages. Would also love to see this Denmark as one of the countries :)

This is great. Pricing doesn't seem too bad either.

Wondering what the "abusive" level is for sending messages. Guessing if this is Twilio a penny per message could go quick, especially if someones traveling and using SMS as their main method of communication

@kristofertm Thanks! 🙏 I'm pretty flexible so as long as someone is receiving 1000+ messages a month, it should be ok. I'd probably reach out to the user personally and see why / how we can make it work though.

@bryceadams Good stuff man. Have family traveling back and forth to Greece. Plans to add?

@kristofertm Just waiting on Twilio :) It's tough as I can often get numbers for most countries but SMS is another ballgame, where some networks won't allow it, others won't receive the SMS, etc. - hoping to add more countries ASAP though.
