It is becoming a standard practice for the various Canadian banks and other businesses to require us to receive an SMS in a Canadian cell number to verify our identity and send us a code to login online after.
To the best of my knowledge (from various trips overseas) my Public cell number only works in Canada (and perhaps in the US), which becomes a problem when having to validate my identity when away for several weeks.
Is this something that can be changed?
I know Freedom, which offers similar plans to Public, has cell numbers active overseas (able to receive a text).
It would be great to have an active Canadian cell number when I travel outside of Canada/US.
