We recently introduced you to our new simplified mobile plans, which deliver greater flexibility and freedom over your Telstra services. You can customise our new plans to suit your needs, including the option to choose from a range of add-ons like:


Sport and Entertainment – like Foxtel Now, Kayo and Netflix.

Accessories – like smart watches and headphones.

Telstra Services – like Telstra Locator, Stay Connected and International Calling Packs.


Not only is it now simpler to create the right plan for you, you can also manage your service, including many of these add-ons, straight from your mobile using the My Telstra app. Some of these handy in-app features include:

Having this issue too, still no fix. Desk top or app not showing manage add-ons 


Having the same issue too.  Tried calling Telstra but it isn't a critical issue according to the voice prompts so you cannot even speak to anyone about it.

Level 1: Cadet

Still nothing from Telstra cant even get them on the phone, all I need to do is change my on/off hours in parental controls and it doesn't work, anybody else had any luck contacting Australia's best mobile network?

The manage button was re-enabled for a while but disappeared again a few days ago, why?
