I live overseas and entered incorrect password on my bankwest app more than 3 times. I am now locked out and the 6 digit pin goes to my Aussie number which I no longer have. Really expensive calling from this part of the world. How do I get my password reset

@Zaheer: From the here's something they prepared earlier file (with apologies to Gabriel Gaté), if you're not willing to turn on your cellular service to receive the code - you need to call them and ask to resolve the issue with your account, and have them to put an SMS code exception in place:
...we would need to put an SMS code exemption in place while you are overseas. To do this we need to speak with you over the phone. You can call us from overseas on +61 8 9486 4130. This is a reverse charges number. To use this number from outside Australia please contact the international operator in the country you are in and request to be put through to +61 8 9486 4130. Please note: we have no control over any charges applied by the local or international telephone company for contacting the operator.

Hi @Zaheer, @thewinchester is exactly correct. The SMS Code can only be sent to a registered Australian mobile number, so if you are unable to access this, an exemption can be put in place. To have this actioned you do need to be verbally identified, so we would ask that you call our Contact Centre on the Reverse Charges number above. Thanks!
