Telstra launches “Telstra 24×7″ app to help manage your service

Telstra have launched a new app dubbed “Telstra 24×7″ which helps you manage your Telstra service. You can check your usage/balance, recharge, find stores and get in contact with support. The app doesn’t give you notifications when your data or allowance is running low as Telstra provide this service via SMS already. However, the ability to have a quick glance at your account is always nice.

There aren’t any widgets included in the app to enable even quicker access to your account’s info, although this isn’t a huge set back. Huge props to Telstra for building the app specifically for Android and making it fit in with the Android 4.X look and feel, instead of being a sad web-app.

    Note that this app doesn’t work for Telstra Business customers :(

    Guess it’ll be good to compare to Android’s built-in data usage tracking towards the end of my billing month. Runs ok on my Galaxy Nexus.

  • grum

    Not compatible with 4 of my 5 Android devices. Swell.

    • thernus

      What devices do you have? It works on my XOOM, Atrix, Droid Pro and Nexus One. I’m just surprised its not compatible!

      • grum

        Hrm… odd – well firstly its ‘incompatible’ with my Nexus one X (not XL). As well as a galaxy note, nexus S, HTC Cha Cha.

    If they added widgets, this could replace my third party usage meter, but its nice to have an official Telstra method of checking my accounts. I’m also glad its better than the Telstra One app (which will now be uninstalled).

  • nut

    Why does this application need to read all my contact information?

  • theSquid

    In the Telstra section of the Google Play Store there is an admittedly dated app called “TelstraOne” which comes with a data usage widget.

  • JeniSkunk

    Does this app come with the ability to uninstall TelstraOne from System ROM?

  • Johnny Anon

    Okay, this is fine.

    But where are the details on how much I’ve spent of my cap?

    I already have a widget for data usage…so I’d like something that deal with call/text usage.
