Re: talk to me

Sorry to read of your situation..

 

Unfortunately, most contributors here on CrowdSupport are customers just like you, trying to assist other Telstra users with their problem. Most of us don't have access for account related matters, so unless a sympathetic 'real' Telstra person notices this message and redirects it or actions directly themselves, you might not get any real help here.

 

Painful as it is, the mobile My Telstra app is probably your best bet - once you are in there select the Get Help option and then the blue chat icon - Codi the chat bot can be unfriendly and unhelpful..  you might get around Codi bay asking to talk to a representative/human etc. I have also managed it by going through the Sales track until I get to a person, then apologise for getting there by mistake  Smiley Wink

Not with Telstra, just another customer like you!

Re: talk to me

You don't need to be logged in to the app to be able to use the chat function.

Also, you might get a quicker response if you ask for Bereavements. They are usually pretty good at getting issues with deceased estates sorted.

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

Set it & forget it

With direct debit there’s no need to give paying your bill another thought.

Avoid queuing up and never worry about late fees again.
