Public Phone Box Reverse Charge in emergency

Hi there,
Can anyone please tell me if Telstra 1800 Mum Dad (1800 686 323) is still available from public phones ? And how to use it ???

My young teenager got lost yesterday after taking the wrong bus, had a flat mobile battery on his mobile and wasn’t able to contact me for 4 hours.... He was quite distressed.

I am a Telstra customer with a post paid Telstra mobile, as is my son also.

Any info about the service would be great Smiley Happy
