Telstra Online Text Buddy stopped working today

We have been using Text Buddy for years in our organisation as a simple way for our users to send SMS messages to clients from their desktop.


It seems as of today it is no longer working for us. When logging in to the Telstra Online Text Buddy client, we now get the following error:


"Communications Error: Telstra Online Text Buddy is unable to send request: The operation timed out


Please contact the Telstra Online text Buddy Help Desk for further assistance."


Has the service been finally killed off, or is it still supported in some way?



Was this helpful?

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

To be perfectly honest, I thought it had been killed off 2 years ago.

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

Hi ss2515,

Sorry you're having trouble with this, it is no longer available to be downloaded so I wonder if it's not up to date with the operating system you are using.

Call 132999 for technical support to have us look into this further.

Get back to me if you need further assistance.
