Telstra makes 1800 numbers free of charge for mobile customers

Telstra has today announced a new bonus for their customers, becoming the first Australian operator to offer calls to 1800 number free of charge from a mobile.

While you’ve been able to call 1800 numbers toll free from a landline for years, the cost of calling from a mobile has still been present, but no longer. Calls to 1800 numbers from a landline will remain free, but Telstra has recognised that more people are using their mobile as their main phone line and have decided to include the service as a bonus to their mobile customers.

The inclusion will be present for both post-paid and pre-paid Telstra customers. Not a bad deal if you’re on the Telstra network.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Very misleading headline. “Telstra makes 1800 numbers free of charge for *SOME* mobile customers” if you please.

Incorrect, Optus has had unlimited calls to 1800 numbers since their new plans launched in June.

I had an Exetel plan for years which included 13 and 1800 numbers in the unlimited calls category, so Telstra are not the first by a long way.
