New connection in apartment block
I've just moved into a new apartment. I'm trying to get internet connected. Telstra tell me the previous resident did not disconnect.
- Telstra asked for a copy of my lease - so I sent it to them
- Now they want me to go buy (or borrow) a phone and ring them from my apartment so they can confirm the phone number in the apartment. They say they don't know the number and are afraid they will dis-connect the wrong person. How did they bill the previous resident if they don't know the phone number....
- I don't want to buy a phone I'll never use. I'm new to the city and don't want to knock on a neighbours door to ask to borrow their phone as I don't know them and I think that's a bit much
- If I can't buy or borrow a phone, Telstra wants to charge me $125 to send out a technician - plus I'll have to take a day off work to sit at home and wait.
- If I'm not prepared to spend $125 and a day off work OR to buy a phone, Is my only alternative to cancel the order and use some other provider??

Re: New connection in apartment block
Hi, I am sorry you are having such a hard time trying to get a connection in place. I would suggest speaking directly with our Sales Team on 13 2200 about what can be done instead. Can I confirm that you are without a homeline at present?
