Default Anyone in Honolulu have a Barclays PINsentry?

I arrived in Hawaii to find my Barclays PINsentry is dead. I tried replacing the batteries - still dead. Of course, Barclays will only mail a new PINsentry to my London address, which doesn't help one bit.

I don't suppose I'm lucky enough to find someone in Honolulu or elsewhere on Oahu with a working Barclays PINsentry I could use one time? If so - a million thanks!

Isn't there a mobile pinsentry in the app?

Last I checked the app was only available for those with their iOS store set to "United Kingdom" - when I changed mine to US (to get US specific banking apps etc) it stopped updating my Barclays and Santander apps, annoyingly.

Strange. Barclays have sent me three PINsentry devices to my US address since I moved here. Or are you just on vacation? Unfortunately, I live in Houston. I don't think we have any regular posters who live in Hawaii.

There is - but I left the UK without downloading the app (I usually use my PC, not my phone, for banking), and of course you need the PINsentry to set up your mobile banking account...

I've moved here, but Barclays said they could only mail a new PINsentry to my UK address. I asked them to do so, as there's a friend there who can mail it to me when it arrives - except that I ordered mail redirection,and I'm not certain whether something like that will be forwarded. I'm not without options - I can either write a check to myself and deposit it in my US bank, hoping it doesn't take forever to clear, or I can Paypal myself, if I decide I'm willing to pay Paypal's fee for an international transfer.

I believe you can also use Transfer wise with debit cards, although I may be mistaken, it's worth a look.

Honestly, I would call back and speak to someone else. I have had 2 pin sentries sent to me whilst in the USA. The last one was about 3 months ago.

They'll probably send it if your address on your account is your US address but if it's not you're SOL as you either have to go in to a branch to change your address or do it online but you need a PINSentry to do that. I left the UK before PINSentry was even a thing so my account has been pretty limited. Luckily I was a civil servant in the UK so there's bugger all money in the account.

I had a pin sentry in France but i've never ever used it. When I moved to the USA, I called them and got them to change the address from FR to USA,l then when I moved within the USA, I called again to change the address. Each time I've been sent an actual form to fill out and send back, which I've done.
I only use the account when in the UK and usually it's got about $15 in there. I have had the account for 35 years.....

I think Barclays support is very much a YMMV, having said that I haven't tried changing my address for years since the initial rejection and now with them supposedly closing accounts unless there's a significant sum in there I'm tempted not to bother unless my sister decides to move house.

Maybe try a tourist hotspot and see if there are any UK visitors around to borrow one from? My MIL always used to travel with her pin sentry. Other UK banks use similar systems and although the buttons may have different names the layout doesn't vary and the underlying protocol is the same IIRC.

You can download the app by changing the country of your profile (at least in iphone), regardless the country you are at the moment - I have done it.
