Re: KOBIL UBS card reader

Hello guys,
I'm currently traveling in Asia and the KOBIL card reader from UBS has stopped working, even after I replaced batteries. As far as I know, the bank delivers the card readers only in Switzerland, so I was wondering if you know if I can buy a similar device that does the job from somewhere else. It seems that most other bank don't use something like that.
Quite a few banks, in CH and other countries, use, or have used, similar machines, but I think that each type is unique to the issuing bank. Certainly the ones I've had from Postfinance, UBS and UK banks (in the past) have not been interchangeable, and I've assumed that basic security would require them not to be.

So no, you won't be able to buy one elsewhere, but why don't you contact your bank and ask what measures they could use to help you out?
