Spend Management Tools and Advice
Choosing the right telecommunications product to suit your needs can help you to keep control of your spending from the start. We recommend that you review the applicable charges for plans, keep your expected use of the services in mind and be aware of any eligible savings, for example, by bundling your phone and internet with Commander.
It's important to discuss responsible phone and internet use with your family, housemates and/or partner so that everyone understands how their use can impact your household financially. Especially for younger and teenage phone users, discuss the use of Premium Voice Services and Premium SMS / MMS Services that can rack up large, unexpected bills in a short space of time. We have provided further information on these services and available barring options below.
Staff can provide information regarding unbilled charges on your account and information regarding your usage. Your privacy is important to us, so be sure to have your account information handy so we can verify your identity.
If you would like to manage your spending on Commander service/s, you can request that your account is restricted for particular call types or premium services.
Call Control is another option available to you which can prevent the calling of specific phone types from your landline.
For further information, please have a look at our fact sheets on Premium Voice Services and Premium SMS / MMS Services which discuss the risks of using these services and how you can keep in control.
