Norwegian Bank, anyone?

Where to buy? Where can I find? How do I? Getting started.

In the UK you can even change the pin code of your debit card at a cash machine so it is easier for you to remember it, here it is unheard of.
Nordea already has pin code generator app and is rolling out a device. I am not sure about the ability to change pin codes because people make horrible choices for their pin codes.

IIRC I got to choose the pin when I ordered my card from Nordea.

I really wish people would realize there are many without resources or abilities for 'phones' -- especially those uses requiring expensive phones (expensive to many means even 150€)

in fact I mentioned that I'd like to get the codes by text message, not through smartphone apps. It's the safest way (if you only have an old 2g phone it means no viruses) and you don't have to hope that the postman doesn't deliver your paper bank codes at the wrong address, considering the way in which Posti is going, this is a real possibility...

2G SMS is by no means the safest way. Using 2G is the same as using unprotected wifi for your online banking.

Meh. For 45 euros, you can get a new generic Android phone that works okay for everyday tasks, including receiving SMSs, making calls, and using banking apps.
If 45 euros is expensive for a phone for you, then I wouldn't worry about having a bank account altogether.
Every f*cking case is unique. You can't measure the result of your application based on arbitrary anecdotes online. Stop being a moron!

How about - in addition to the 'Meh' - telling a brand name (s) and where one can possibly get them. Thanks!

With the Blu one, you need to make sure you have it fully updated since it used to have some dodgy software. But hey, it's cheap. You want cheap, you get cheap.

Thanks - but what are the possibilities for a seller being a Finnish company - where some kind of feedback would be possible?

I bought a Samsung decent-enough phone thru DNA - 2 years ago - and it was 70 euro. These days they are 150€ -( and for 500 you even get fireworks! :) )

Nothing has happened in the world economy nor on the phone market that would be saying prices should have doubled.

Good choice. :thumbsup: S&P500 is doing very well, especially after Trump won.
The key is to keep adding whenever you can, preferably on monthly basis, and to not freak out when occasional dips happen.

Which investment bank are you using? Nordnet? Vanguard?
This is just getting better and better, +11,2% in 5 months.If it continues like this I'll retire to a tropical island by the end of 2018
