Message 1 of 2 3,297 Views



I have receieved my new eftpos card and need to activate it. I am overseas and not registered for SMS. the phone number for card activation, as shown on the front of my new card for overseas customers (+61894492840) is now de-activated and there is a recorded message saying to call the 131719. I can't call this number from overseas. Please give me an international phone number to call or another method to activate my card. I am overseas until March and want to be sure my card is ready for use when I return to Australia.



many thanks
