Why am I charged for incoming SMS as well as Missed Call Alert?
Foreign operator may impose charges for receiving incoming SMS.
While travelling, I received 6 Alerts on Day 1, and none on Day 2 yet my bill indicated that I received 4 Alerts on Day 1 & 2 Alerts on Day 2?
This is because of the time difference in the country you were roaming. MCA is billed based on Singapore time.
When will I receive a Missed Call Alert when roaming?
To receive Missed Call Alerts while roaming from a caller in Singapore, he/she must not be calling from a private number or public phone or have “Caller Number Non Display Service” activated.
What will I see on my mobile phone, after I miss a call?
You will see the caller’s number, the time and date of call.
Sometimes a local number (from the country I'm roaming in) is reflected in my SMS, instead of my caller's number. Why is this so? Will I be able to call my caller back on that local number?
The number is a standard number set by the foreign operator for re-routed calls. You won't be able to reach your caller using that local number. You will still be charged for the Missed Call Alert in this case.
