Do I get charged for receiving international phonecalls

Answered

I am using Telstra pre-paid on my cellphone and I was wondering if it costs me money to receive international/overseas (~30min) phonecalls while being in Australia?

 

Thanks in advance for the clarification.

No you don't get charged receiving OS calls while in AU using a AU sim.

Basically Ched it works like this  

If you have an Australian mobile on an Australian plan then if someone calls you from overseas they pay.

If you have an Australian mobile on an Australian plan with international roaming and you travel overseas then if someone calls you while you are overseas, you pay a "roaming" rate per minute that you are connected. The person that called you (if from Australia) pays normal mobile phone rates (as if you were still in Australia)

Hi Loni

As long as you're in Australia you aren't charged to receive any calls.
