Understanding when it’s an Australian standard mobile or home number

It would be so easy if us as customers of Telstra would receive a quick recorded voice telling us the number we were dialing was not an Australian standard mobile or landline.

This would fix the whole problem of guessing or hoping you were dialing the correct standard rate and not being hit with a nasty surprise on next bill.I worry perhaps Telstra really don’t want to do this for financial reasons......hope not !!!There are a lot of other carriers out there at the moment and if I found this to be the case I would be gone simply on principle.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: Understanding when it’s an Australian standard mobile or home number

It's quite easy to tell.
A standard number begins with an area code of:
02 - NSW
03 - VIC/TAS
04 - Mobile
07 - QLD
08 - SA/NT/WA
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
