What model tablet? Not all tablets have the phone function available in their firmware.
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

When you activated the SIM which plan did you choose? It might of bee activated on a data only prepaid plan. You can check which plan you are on by logging into Telstra My Account

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.
