As an added level of security would it be possible to have an SMS message sent to your mobile phone and enter in your wallet for sending transactions?

There would need to be a drop down box for more than one mobile number to select.  eg. If you have a SIM cards for different countries.

Some exchanges already offer this, if you keep your BTC at the exchange.

If you're looking for a trading/lending place, better avoid Poloniex, as it socializes losses. Learn more about it on this topic.

This is a very vague question, it all depends on the service/client that you use.

I live in Thailand, my bank is in Australia.

When I transfer funds I receive a text message with a four digit code which I have to enter for the transfer to proceed successfully.

I am using Bitcoin QT wallet on my laptop.

I do become a little paranoid about protecting my wallet and thought my suggestion could be a possibility.

It's not going to happen with the Bitcoin QT client.  Your best bet is to encrypt your wallet with a very strong password if you're worried about unauthorized transactions from it.

There's really no way to stop unauthorized transactions in bitcoin though, because there's no central authority.  You just have to make sure you're keeping the private keys secure.
