SMS Verification

I. Introduction

Ⅷ. Considerations
1. The external transaction referred by SMS Verification includes e-transfer, transfer/remittance between ICBC and other banks, remittance to other countries from China, tuition payment, bill payment, and e-commerce—the transaction sum of B2C and C2C.
2. During the process of using SMS Verification service, cases may occur that you cannot receive verification SMS timely due to the delay of SMS gateway by mobile operators. If you do not receive SMS within two minutes, you can press the "Telephone Inquiry" button on the page of Internet Banking, after which ICBC will call the mobile phone number you left through 95588 Client Service Hotline to inform you of your transaction information and verification code.  
3. When signing up SMS Verification through self-service, you must use the mobile phone number you left on Internet Banking, instead of a different one. During the signing up process, ICBC will send the password SMS to the mobile phone number you left, so as to help you finish the procedure.
4. When you are revising the mobile phone number for SMS verification or withdrawing from SMS Verification, ICBC will send password SMS to your original mobile phone number to help you finish the revision.
5. You can, through the function of "setting the lowest limit of SMS Verification", set the maximum amount of transaction without SMS Verification. If the cumulative amount of your external transaction of the current day does not reach the limit, you can use USB-Shield or E-banking Code Card directly to complete the transaction and signature.
