When faced with domestic or family violence, we want to help you. We understand that in such events having access to communications is critical and you can talk to us about how we can further assist you.

How we can help.

Transferring the mobile number into your name.

If you’re experiencing, or have just left a domestic or family violence situation and you’d like to keep your mobile number but the account isn’t in your name, there may be instances where we can transfer the mobile number to you.

Please head in store or give us a call on 1300 650 410. Our team may be able to assist by transferring your mobile number into your name.

You’ll need to bring these documents in store:

  • Relevant identification, such as a drivers license or Medicare card and
  • A Statutory Declaration witnessed by an authorised person that you are, or have been the subject of domestic or family violence; and
  • In some cases we may also require you to support your request by supplying an AVO/police report/court order/ or a letter from women’s shelter and
  • The device associated to the mobile number you’ve been using

 

Our team will then verify these documents and we’ll send a one-time passcode to the mobile number associated with the service to prove your relationship with that mobile number.
