Cancel service and receive refund

Answered

I have tried for so many months now to cancel service and receive refund. As there is no usage! But every piece of crap support online is getting me no where. App is not working for me as I have no account visible. 24/7 chat is a joke and they don't help. I need to talk to someone asap on the phone but it keeps cutting me off. How do I do this without getting cut off as I don't have internet access anymore!!! Please help

Re: Cancel service and receive refund

The only way is to send a message using the My Telstra app on your mobile (blue icon, bottom right of Get Help screen). If Codi doesn't understand the question then type "Speak to a consultant" and you should be transferred to the queue to chat with a human. 

 

Barring that, you can lodge it as a formal complaint via https://telstra.com/complaints

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

You could also try phoning general support 132 200.

Also the business support number 132 000 I was able to speak to a native English speaker.

 

may be put on hold for ages however.

I have the same issue.

I spend 2 hours waiting on the phone and get cut off.

Telstra make it impossible to cancel an account, either through making themselves inaccessible or making processes so difficult you are required to call them - back to the impossible wait.

Telstra are a disgrace.

Hello @LAUREN121212121, that's not good to hear. You can cancel by calling 13 22 00 and say Cancel a Service, there may be a long wait though as phone support will be prioritsed for high risk and priority assist cases first. 

 

The easiest option is via the My Telstra App, under Get Help, then click the blue Messaging icon. Anyone can use this, you don't even need to be logged in, and the app will let you know when our support agents respond to assist you further.

Totally agree. These philipinos have no **bleep**en idea..No wonder the Telstra is **bleep**ed up.

I just signed up for a new internet deal and am really struggling. Fickem I just will not pay the bill until they fix my issues. Probably best to complain through ACCC or even fare trade.

The appropriate place to make complaints against Telecommunications companies is the Telecommunications Ombudsman (TIO) at tio.com.au

What kind of support is that Cas-Ra?  Telstra's service is absolutely shocking!!! ZERO customer service!  I honestly do not understand how you are even still in business!!!

That is the limit of what the Telstra Customer Service staff can do here. They cannot access Telstra's systems to provide actual customer service due to privacy issues on a social media platform (governed by the restrictions imposed by the Privacy Act). They can only direct you to where it may be obtained (and in the case of existing complaints with a reference number, send a message to the complaints manager asking that they get in contact with the complainant).

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.
