Because wifi calling works much better now because you can do that anywhere you can find a wifi service when you discover there is no mobile coverage where you happen to be even if that is just some place you will never go to again.

There is one big downside of 'WiFi calling', it only works on *some* phones with *some* mobile providers. It would cost me quite a lot of money (especially compared with the amount I currently spend on my mobile) to get a phone that can do WiFi calling and change provider.

Wouldn’t cost me anything at all. The iphones all do it and the provider does it and it’s the cheapest provider I could find, $10 per month for unlimited calls and sms and mms to any landline and mobile in the country and 1GB of data. Doesn’t cost much more for more data if you need that.

Yep, why do people pay through the nose for service from the network operators and quite likely to be be tied into a 12 or 24 month contract, with a price that isn't fixed for the duration of the contract?

Well how much would a femtocell coast?
You are going through exactly te same cost benefitr crap that I went thriough .
In the end the phone cost me nearly £200, but I have no contract - its PAYG.

I am not sure why people go for contracts anyway. Particularly 'all BT' or 'all virgin'

One of my banks uses a card reader to generate a one-time code but another bank uses a standalone device like a mini-calculator which generates a one-time code without needing a bank card.

No. they are using a OTP based on time and some secret that they do need to download when setting it up.
The HSBC has been doing it for a few years now but with a dongle to generate the codes, that is being discontinued in favour of the online app.

I had a similar notification a few days ago, with various links offering help, support etc which just seemed to take me into a forest of options, none of which seemed relevant to my query, which was:
'As I don't do Internet banking, only have a current account, my mobile phone is twenty years old and hardly ever used, and although I buy things in shops and over the Internet via my PC, I either pay by debit card or by Paypal. Is any of this relevant to me?'.
I see they offer me three options: Download the Barclays App; Text message to my mobile or use a PINsentry card reader.
Perhaps others a bit more clued up on these things could answer my question. Is any of this relevant to me?

You might need one of them to setup new people to pay from your account, you do for HSBC. There is something about needing a verification for some thing bought on cards to help prevent fraud. I don't know what level of transaction they require it at.

If you use a debit card online, presumably it will be relevant to you, because you'll need to use 2FA when they introduce it.
I have no mobile reception at my home. As yet I don't know how this is going to work, except for Tesco, which has allowed me to set up a separate authentication password for online purchases. Rather like the old Verified by Visa system.

The card reader solution would suit me best - I already use one for business banking - but my bank(s) haven't mentioned it as a possibility for personal banking.

If you have no mobile phone reception at all but you have an internet connection, you can buy a femtocell/picocell.
This plugs into your broadband router and is effectively a mobile phone mast. Then you now have a mobile phone signal on your phone in your house.
All the big four mobile providers offer femtocells or picocells.
Google for suresignal to get you started!
That would then permit you to set up 2FA on your bank account and mobile phone.

Suresignal is the Vodaphone one. I've had one for many years. Our house is built with very hard bricks so mobile phone signals don't easily come. indoors. Leaning out of an upstairs window does get a signal
