Extreme Incompetence (aka Telstra)

Is there a way to communicate with Telstra that does not involve being passed around a telephone helpdesk in India until you give up?

Was this helpful?

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

They have their phone teams on 132200 

except for a few teams like nbn for example which is 1800 TFIBRE (1800 834 273)


They also have their LiveChat team here.


It really depends on what you need help with. 

Failing those two, if you are unable to get a resolution for your issue via those standard methods there is also the complaints team their details are here.
