WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
We will help you control your spend by providing you with notifications via email or SMS when you reach 50%, 85% and 100% of your call/SMS value and/or data allowance that is included in your mobile plan or in your broadband plan. Usage notifications do not occur in real time but with a delay of 48 hours after you actually reached the respective thresholds. Usage notifications also do not include any usage that you may have consumed overseas (mobile roaming), calls and SMS to overseas destinations and calls to premium services.
There may be other ways of keeping your spend on track, such as
barring more expensive numbers,

use Wifi at home and avoid using data all the time

Your mobile services cannot be used overseas.
Charges for mobile roaming (i.e. for calls, SMS and data) are usually significantly higher than within Australia and also higher than charges for making international calls from Australia. Importantly, you may also be charged for receiving calls and SMS when using your service overseas. Making and receiving calls/SMS overseas is not included in your monthly allowance and you will be required to pay these charges in addition to your monthly charge. Therefore, even short periods of international mobile roaming can generate a very high bill.
Please contact us if you wish to receive more information on international mobile roaming.
