Home phone line

Answered

I am purchasing a new home phone, prior to connecting it I would like assurance that the line is completely clear of add ons such as telstra message bank etc.When I did this previously telstra message cut in first and disabled the new phones answering system.There were also other issues indicating the phone number allocated by telstra had been previously issued.

Re: Home phone line

Hello

When you order your new service, please make it clear you do not want voicemail.

 

Almost all Telstra numbers have been previously used, though they have to be in quarrantine for 6 months.

It is luck of the draw if it was a heavily used number.

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