Apple Music Overseas

Does anyone else have trouble with Apple Music (under Telstra subscription) while overseas? I can download and stream music fine when I'm home in Australia, but as soon as I'm at work (in PNG), even if I have wifi connection I can't download or stream. It says "File format Not supported" etc... I turned off iCloud for music and now it won't allow me to switch it back on (I'm in PNG)... 

Never had these issues before signing up to Apple through Telstra.. i.e. when I was paying monthly fee direct to Apple it all worked fine no matter where I was.

Was this helpful?

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