i have requested to change my landline from  optus to telstra as i packaged this as part of broadband in the area.

Telstra have not given me the same landline number and i rang optus and they referred me to a site which was no help .

i rang telstra and they just referred me back to optus i just want to keep my same land line number as we have ageing parents that need to stay in touch

Was this helpful?

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

Re: landline

Yeah ultimately it is up to Optus to release the number for use. You're right about that link. If you're getting no joy from them you may need to go through their complaints process
