Telstra Payphone

I received a text from a Telstra Payphone and yes found out
the police can obtain the location details of a payphone. How long will it take to trace and locate where the message came from?

Was this helpful?

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

Re: Telstra Payphone


Apologies for the delay in getting back to you on this. 

Hopefully you've already got more information since posting here, if you did still need assistance and this is related to an ongoing police investigation, I'd suggest getting in contact with them directly for further details on this - they would be following their processes for requesting this information and have access to our law enforcement liaison unit for follow up. 

I hope this is sorted out for you soon, if there's anything else we can help with please let me know.
