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'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.
