Setup a Telstra account

I just bought a prepaid Telstra Elite Mobile WiFi modem, and when trying to setup a Telstra account to check my usage, it sends an SMS to the number associated with the modem. How am I supposed to receive the SMS?

Re: Setup a Telstra account

Hi Twigz,

You should be able to remove the SIM and put into a mobile phone to receive the sms or alternatively check the usage via https://www.my.telstra.com.au/myaccount/home 

There you will be able to 

1. Recharge your Pre-Paid account.
2. Check you Pre-Paid balance and credit expiry.
3. View your usage or recharge history
