How to receive SMS while traveling in china

I'm in a business travel in china and I got roaming on, but seems I'm not able to recieve any SMS now. However, I did received two SMS successfully two days ago in china, after that seems all messages are blocked even my business partner in china is not able to text me successfully. I even tried to get verification code from celcom online support but failed. BTW, I'm using unicom 3g as my carrier now. Need help to know how to enable SMS again.

I don't think Celcom can help you properly using this Community. Try calling their call centre by using *123#. It's free and it's the number to call especially if you're roaming and you're facing issues.

It helped me loads

Is that support number free even for the international call?

Yup! Just dial that number and you'll receive a call from their Call centre.

Or do you mean you are calling from an foreign number? If foreign number, i don't think the call will go through. U have to use your Celcom number.
