Contacting Bank of America from India via phone without International outgoing using Collect Call

If you’re ever stuck in a situation where you need to contact Bank of America from here in India, but don’t have International outgoing available, here’s a quick tip:

  • Check out AT&T’s Direct Access Dialing Code for India(at the time of writing this, it’s 000117)
  • You’ll reach an Operator. Tell him/her the number you want to Dial. This should be 602.597.2395 for Bank of America. Will be different for others.
  • You’ll be prompted to Enter Calling Card number. Skip entering anything
  • You’ll be asked if you want to initiate a Collect Call. Say yes.
  • Done.

This should work with any organization which uses AT&T and accepts Collect Call, but I haven’t tried with others. I’m writing here because I want to document this for my future use.

This will come in real handy especially in situations where BoA detects Irregular/Fraudulent card activity and wants you to verify the transaction by dialling in – but you have no way of reaching out to an International number. Have your card number & other details ready

Coming October 17: Def Leppard in Concert in Bangalore!

Yup, what was tentative earlier is now more or less confirmed as the below picture shows:
Def Leppard!

I _should_ be able to make it, and if I do, this will be the first concert I’ll be attending! I desperately wanted Red Hot Chili Peppers to perform live(there were rumours of them performing in Bangalore), sadly seems the concert didn’t materialize. Oh well. Santosh & Subbu have confirmed their presence for the concert, are you coming? Confirm your presence over at last.fm events.
