Re: Double dipping thieves

I can understand your frustration, but as there is no account access or billing access to anyone here at CrowdSupport your post here will not get any satisfaction for you..


Perhaps would be an option for you, especially if you have all the evidence to support your claim..


If could take a week or more to get a response...

Too many devices, probably an addict :-) also a tinkerer and developer of stuff..
Not with Telstra, just another customer like you!

Re: Double dipping thieves

It sounds like you have Upgrade and Protect on your service. That does not cover lost or stolen devices. You need to be able to return the device (either in good working order or damaged).


Stayconnected Advanced was the policy that covered lost or stolen devices, but Telstra hasn't sold that for a while now.

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.
