We’re here to keep you connected and up to date about COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Our number one priority is the wellbeing of our customers and team members. We encourage you to follow the guidance of the Australian Health Department on how to protect yourself.


We’ll also continue to keep you updated on Telstra Exchange as well as on the latest cybercriminals capitalising on Coronavirus (COVID-19) and what to watch out for.


You may also receive a legitimate text message from Telstra, with the following information: 
Coronavirus Aus Gov msg: To stop the spread, stay 1.5m from others, follow rules on social gatherings, wash hands, stay home if sick.


Due to increased containment measures announced by the Philippines Government, Telstra’s contact centre workforce has been reduced. This means there will be longer wait times for customers contacting us via phone or online messaging.

I understand there is a delay in delivery, would've been great to advise at checkout.. Anyways can someone tell me how long? My current mobile is choosing when it wants to work. Without going into my personal situation a reliable working phone is necessary right now.

If you could advise approximate wait time or if I can collect from my local store?? Thanks

I'm also caught in limbo in regards to an order.


I placed an order for a phone that said 'available now' over a week ago but haven't heard anything since.  The phone now says 'out of stock' on the web site and my order doesn't exist in the track my order system.  I'm transferring across from another carrier and have no idea if my service will drop out at any point.  My current phone is completely unreliable and I'm now working from home, so I need to sort this out pretty quick.  But given the phone is out of stock on the site and I can't track my order I have no idea what time frame I'm dealing with.  


Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I can’t find how to register for the extra data due to covid 19 either....

I moving houses and have requested the disconnection from previous address to the new, but due to COVID 19 I haven't received any answers to when it will be connected and cannot get through to anyone at Telstra to answer my question. I've been living 1 week now in the new address with no connection and still having to pay for the service that I'm not using. Thing is I want to cancel it now to engage another company to get connection, but cannot get do that either without having to talk to someone. Should I just stop paying the bill to get someone contacting me?

Same as others are reporting, there is no link on the 24/7 app to apply for additional 25GB of data...have logged out and back in, and have also logged into My Account and nothing there either. Great Small Business service
