A couple of questions to anyone who has Bell Direct accounts.
1) Has anyone had much success trading through SMS? I register for the service, get the PIN code back but everytime I reply to sell stock, request funds available (by txting FUNDS <acct#>) or even request for help (by txting HELP), I get no response back. I'm copping the 55c SMS deduction everytime I do this and I definitely have credit available. Bell Direct has responded with "the problem is with your provider" (which is Optus) so I re-registered with a valid Telstra prepaid sim I had lying around and, too, this feature did not work!
This leads me to point two. Since SMS trading does not work, let's go to plan B.
The reason why I prefer to trade through a WiFi/3G connection or SMS is that I would rather not trade through my corporate connection at work. I only trade about once a week but if I get an SMS alert that my entry/exit target has been met or I hit my stop loss, it would be convenient to buy/sell quickly (especially when I'm in the middle of a long strung-out meeting ).
Can anyone provide some of their experiences trading through these methods on Bell Direct?
