Re: My phone wont dial 13 or 1300 numbers

Is it a Telstra mobile service?
Have you tried restarting the phone?
Is it only 13 numbers? Do 18 numbers do the same?
What if you call +61 439 125 109?

You may have network barring for 13 numbers, but I thought Telstra as an unmeteted number is exempt.
Has it ever worked?
How long have you had the service and also the phone?
If I have helped you, a "Like" would be appreciated.

If my advice is a solution, please acknowledge it.

From my understanding 13 22 00 should always work irrespective of barring placed on the phone.

Re: My phone wont dial 13 or 1300 numbers

It is a Telstra service I've had for 3 or 4 years. Cant recall exactly when I would have used a 13 - but fairly sure I called 13cabs at some point .

It has started working again as of testing just now - thanks for the replies.
