*10# no longer working


*10# seems to no longer be working on my home phone line.   When I tried 24/7 chat, they said it was because it was a hire phone, which is completely incorrect as we we own the phone.  Any suggestions o n how I can turn *10# one please.

Was this helpful?

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

Is your service on NBN?

A "Like" is always appreciated. If my advice is a solution, please mark it. I'm not a Telstra employee.

As it is a standard phone service function (NBN or otherwise), there is no on/off option.


When you press the * and # buttons on your phone, do you hear a tone (it could be that the buttons on the phone have developed a fault and are not generating the tone).


If you can borrow another handset of of someone, it might pay to try it out and see if it works.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Many Thanks.  I do have a tone when I push the the buttons.  The great news is it is now working again.
