    Having issues with my UK bank that cant be resolved via email. I need to speak to them but dont see why I should pay to call them. I have a unitel Lao sim. Does anyone know if I can receive their incoming call for free? I've looked on the website and cant find the information.failing that the bank have told me to make a reverse charge call but this doesn't appear to be an option in Laos.. Is this correct?

    Yes as far as I know reverse charge call not possible from Laos - surely they can call you on your Lao sim?

    You've slightly misunderstood my question. I want to know if I can receive incoming international calls on my Lao sim for free! In the UK, we are charged to receive calls from outside of the UK. I wondered if it is the same here.

    Ahhh, I don't know - I've never noticed that happening anywhere in Asia - you get charged to receive a call in the UK? How bizarre!

    So, my answer is I don't know for sure, but my guess is probably not. :-)
