Telstra 24x7 Is An Account App For iPad

I'd argue that not having carrier bloatware is one of the better things about owning an iPad. But if you are a Telstra customer and want to track your usage and accounts using an app, Telstra's new 24x7 app will do the job.

The app lets you track usage (albeit with a 48 hour delay), pay your bill and link to Telstra support services. Telstra also boasts that the eight-month bill history could be useful at tax time, though realistically you'd want 12 months of data (and the app doesn't work with business accounts, only personal ones).

What's slightly strange about this is that Telstra has gone with the iPad first, rather than releasing an iPhone version which would naturally also work on the tablet. An iPhone release is promised in the future, along with "other phone platforms" (which I assume means Android and WP7) and a Facebook-integrated release.

    I think no time limit on bills (12 months is useful, 8 months is stupid) even if it was just access to PDFs and then push notifications would be enough to make me drop paper bills (well if i had an iPad anyway).

    There are so many ways to get almost-live data usage and call spend for Telstra. Yet their own app is a 48 hour delay? I use the iphone app Consume which shows me my data and call spend... (It also allows you to view Optus and many other phone bills)

    Painful. Couldn't showmkemmyndevice usage with wifi turned on. Even got a few "service unavailable" errors, so maybe 24x7 isn't the right name. I'll stick with Consume to track usage of Telstra mobile data and a bunch of other things all in the same place.

    Chris - The usage info displayed in the app is just as 'almost -live' as Consume. Consume also change $2.99 whereas this is free.

    the app is surprisingly responsive snappy.
    i have consume and it takes forever to get any data from telstra to show up.

    Hello, I just wanted to clarify the queries regarding delays of usage data. Call and data usage can be delayed up to 6 hours, however some billing information can be delayed up to 48 hours. It's worth pointing out that 3rd party usage meters for Telstra products and services typically rely on screen scraping from our site - we've obviously chosen to ensure via our official app to advise everyone the currency/accuracy of the info we provide. Thanks, Monty H (Telstra Digital)

    Hi,
    I have an ipad 1 without a sim card, I just use wi fi. I downloaded the telstra 24/7 app onto my ipad. I have entered my online username and password, however it won't let me access any device service details! Any ideas anyone?
