Rates by text message
Just imagine being in a shop in Thailand buying jewellery. How much is 1800 THB in SEK? You can easily find out how much it is, with the day’s exchange rate, by using FOREX’s text messaging service.
What is the service?
FOREX Bank’s rates are updated every weekday and have been available by phone, fax, Internet and teletext. Now we are offering our customers the opportunity to keep themselves up to date by text message. Wherever you are in the world, you can get a text message, with the latest rates of exchange, sent to your mobile, whenever you like.
How does FOREX text messaging service work?
Firstly, you send a text message to us with information about which currency you would like to find out the rate for. Shortly after, you’ll get a message in return with the rate for the specified currency. You can even use the service to find out how much specific sums of foreign currency are worth in Swedish money. This is how it works:
Text “FOREX THB” to 72777 to get the latest rate for Thai bahts (THB). If you are unsure about the currency code for a specific country, you can also text “FOREX Thailand”. The result is the same as for “FOREX THB”.
Text “FOREX 100 DKK” to 72777 to find out how much 100 Danish crowns (DKK) are worth in Swedish crowns (SEK). You can also write the country’s name instead of the currency code e.g. “FOREX 100 Denmark”FOREX’s text messaging service works all over the world, however, your phone must be connected to a Swedish operator. The text number is always 72777 regardless of where you are.
How much does the service cost?Each rate inquiry costs 3 SEK + standard network fees, depending on operator.
