Pre-paid phone history?!?!?!

Hi guys,

In the process of getting our 820 application together...

I rang optus the other day to get phone and text history emailed to me, but they said teu can only go back 4 months as they don't keep records after that...I'm on optus pre-paid so no contract, just top up every month!

Anyone had similar problem or advice?!

Thanks guys

If they only keep records that long for prepaid accounts then I don't think there's going to be much you can do about it.

Did you use Skype or any smartphone apps to communicate?

Nothing I can really think of that we would be able to keep records of...I was going to ask optus to send me a letter stating their 4 month policy and get it certified as original and then include it withy phone history. My partner is australian and can get copies of her bill showin my number for the year so hopefully between all that it should be enough!

Yes, if you have your partners records that will be fine. As long as it shows the contact between you thats all that matters.

We never used the phone accounts as such as it was too expensive so I just included all my Skype records, viber records etc.

Question Aside from Skype and Viber, any alternatives?

I don't wanna use Skype anymore. The connection is too slow same with Viber. I need a new apps for international calls. Do you guys have any suggestions?

Hi, we found Skype a bit of a hassle as well. In the end we just used FaceTime while chatting at home and the Facebook messenger app while we were out and about (at work or wherever).

FaceTime is free, easy etc, but it's only available from one Apple device to another. It keeps records of calls made too, so we submitted the call list with our application (showing dates of calls and duration).

Don't forget that you can also submit things like mail, evidence of gifts sent to one another etc etc as evidence of contact while apart. My husband sent me one red rose every single week, lol. It was just him being sweet, but since he ordered online (and kept all his emailed invoices) and paid via credit card, it turned out to be pretty good evidence as well.

We used Rebtel. It is good as you can just log in online and get your entire call history

Hi, unfortunately I'm not using an Apple phone and my Mom is not using a Smartphone. We do have a landline and I used phone cards before, but it's too expensive calling them every now and then. I'm browsing the internet last weekend and get the chance to check about Global Call & Rebtel. Do you guys have any idea about these? They said that it's a lot cheaper calling your loved ones abroad. I can also call my Mom in our land line. Does voice quality and connections are good?
