Taishin - worked fine, gave me some cash.
First Bank - didn't work at all despite it having a 4 digit pin and supposedly being ok for international use.

works with 4 digits code in France if you pick up money from an ATM
wasn't accepted by a taxi driver in France
worked in every hotel/shop in France
wasn't able to pick up money in Germany
was able to pay everything in Germany
You will need to enable the function for abroad (4 digits call) before use it.
Got the card within of 30 minutes

Applied for credit cards as well, should arrive next week. Procedure was easy!
Anyone interested in trying to activate their verified by visa, i can post the procedure that worked for me. ( no gaurantee it will work for you, but worth a shot)

Works perfectly, as per any other debit/credit card with the verified by visa authorisation.

So far it's worked in every country I've tried it, even without a 4 digit PIN.

Needed ARC and Passport. My ARC is NOT valid for a year, ONLY 8 months. Still, no problems.
I received a bank book and debit card with the VISA logo on it but no name.
Still haven't used the card. Will update when I do.

I think it is a change at Amazon's end, not anything to do with my bank. Apparently, ebuyer.co.uk now also accept VISA Electron, too.
