Re: default credit

It won't happen quickly even if it is done.


The best group to talk to are the Credit Management Team. Call 132200 and say "Credit Management" at the prompt, or send a message by either:

  • the My Telstra app on your mobile
  • logging into your account via the website

and then go to the Get Help tab and click on the blue icon at the bottom of the screen (labelled Message Us on the website, icon only on app). If the bot doesn't understand the query, type "Speak to a consultant" and you should be transferred to the queue to chat with a human. It can take a few hours to get an initial response. If you use the app, you will get a notification on your mobile when someone responds.

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