Usage information

There are a number of ways to check your balance and usage on your Truphone SIM:

  • Call – 707 from your Truphone SIM (or +61 2 8999 4206 from any other phone) to speak to Customer Service
  • Email – send an email to business.help@truphone.com

 

Using your services overseas

The unique feature about the Truphone Service is the ability to be charged local rates for calls in certain identified countries outside Australia. Where you have chosen to purchase a membership package you will be entitled to have access to local tariffs for your SIM in those identified Truphone supported countries and provided you have paid the necessary subscription for this facility, you will be able to make and receive calls on your Truphone SIM at local call rates in those Truphone supported countries. Where Truphone does not have an arrangement with a specific country for local rates, then you may still use your Truphone SIM but this will be on a roaming basis. You may incur additional charges for this roaming ability including for the making and receiving of calls whilst roaming.

We recommend you check whether local tariffs or roaming charges are applicable for the country you intend to use the Service in before you travel to that country.

For help with how to appoint an authorised representative, please email us on business.help@truphone.com.

What we will do:

Acknowledge...

We will acknowledge your complaint immediately if you made a complaint in person or talked to us over the phone, and within 2 working days if you have lodged your complaint through any other channel including where you left a message on our answering machine (e.g. outside our office hours).

When we acknowledge your complaint we will give you a unique reference number or similar to enable you to easily follow up on your complaint. We will also give you an indicative timeframe for resolving your complaint. You can follow up on your complaint by calling our customer service at 707 (from a Truphone mobile service) or +61 2 8999 4200 (for Prepaid Customers) or +61 2 8999 4206 (for Business Customers).

...And Solve

Our goal is to always fix your problem during your first contact with us.

Sometimes this is not possible and we need to investigate the matter. We will then agree with you on how to fix your problem (this may include waiving of fees or other commercial solutions) and advise you accordingly within 15 working days of receiving your complaint. We will advise you in writing if you request this.

Occasionally it may take longer than 15 working days to investigate your problem and in this case we will explain why and give you a new expected timeframe.

If the delay is more than 10 working days (and is not the result of a Mass Service Disruption) we will also inform you about your options for external dispute resolution such as the TIO.

We will implement all actions required to fix your problem within 10 working days unless you agreed otherwise or unless you have not done something that we needed you to do and we cannot proceed because of this.

 

What if your complaint is urgent?

Your complaint will be treated as urgent

  • if you have applied for being in financial hardship under our Financial Hardship Policy and the issue you are complaining about directly contributes to the Financial Hardship you are experiencing; or
  • if your service has been disconnected or is about to be disconnected and due process has not been followed; or
  • if you are receiving Priority Assistance (e.g. because of a severe medical condition) for the service you are complaining about.

In this case we will agree with you on how to address the issue and implement all required actions to fix the issue within 2 working days. If there is a delay, we will explain why, provide you with a new expected timeframe, and if it is a longer delay also inform you about your options for external dispute resolution such as the TIO.

 

If you are unhappy with our efforts:

If you tell us that you are not satisfied with the complaint timeframes, its progress or the outcome or if you tell us your complaint ought to be treated as urgent, we will escalate your complaint internally. If you are still dissatisfied, we will inform you about your options for external dispute resolution such as the TIO.

We will never cancel your service only because you have contacted an external dispute resolution scheme.

 

Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman (TIO)

We encourage you to always contact us first if you experience any problem or are unhappy. We will do our best to solve your problem during our first contact.

You can contact the TIO as follows:

The services of the TIO are free of charge.
