Account closure and finalise

I went overseas end of September 2017 expecting to be home in couple weeks. However, have had some personal issues to deal with and I am not returning to Australia.
I have tried chat but get the selection screen then after chosing options screen just goes grey and not chat.
I can not call either. I only have access to email. My Telstra bill is now over $3000. I urgently need assistance.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: Account closure and finalise

Hi Jackie-Brown. Really sorry to hear. What device are you trying to use livechat on? 

If it's a mobile, you can 'Request Desktop Site' in the browser settings; that usually resolve the grey screen problem. 

Otherwise, you can call us during Australian business hours, (free from a Telstra mobile) on +61439125109
Please let us know how you get on, I'd like to know this has been addressed - Matthew.

Re: Account closure and finalise

Thanks Matthew,
I was trying my iPhone.
I will try desk top as I don’t have access to call international.
Let you know how I go.

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.
