Receiving SMS messages from the US


Recommended Posts

More and more net services are requiring the receipt of an sms message with a code before you can use the service to be "authenticated".  I am looking for a service that will work in China (preferably without a vpn) that will give me a US telephone number so that I can send and receive calls and sms messages while here in China.  Skype will do that but it gets more and more expensive.  Also, it occupies too much (in my opinion) of my computers resources.  Any idea?

I assume there’s another reason you can’t just have the code sent to your Chinese number? 

For things like google and Facebook I’ve never had an issue receiving authentication texts to my Chinese number. Do smaller sites not work as well?

One or two of the sites (don't remember which ones) did not provide a format that would receive a Chinese phone number.  Your idea is good - I will look at the sites and see if there are some adjustments that can be made.
