BPAY allows you to recharge your Telstra Pre-Paid mobile service via Internet or phone banking. You can even set up automatic recharges.

Step 1. Log on to or call your financial institution's Internet or phone banking service to make a payment of any amount between $20 and $180 from your cheque or savings account.

Step 2. Select the 'BPAY' option and follow the prompts given by your participating financial institution. Please make a note of your receipt number. You’ll also need the following: 

  • Telstra Pre-Paid Biller Code: 150979
  • Your Customer Reference Number is your 10-digit mobile number

Step 3. We'll send you an SMS (for Telstra Pre-Paid devices that can receive SMS) when your credit has been added to your Telstra Pre-Paid service. The recharge credit should be applied to your service one banking day after your payment is received by Telstra.

Please note that as per any other BPAY transaction there may be a delay if you miss your bank's cut off times for BPAY transactions, or on weekends and public holidays. You will need to be registered with your financial institution for telephone or Internet banking to use BPAY.

If you have not used BPAY before, and need more information, please visit

The above Biller Code is only available for Telstra Pre-Paid customers.


The Credit Me2U service is a handy option that allows you to recharge a Telstra Pre-Paid service from your Telstra post-paid mobile account.

You can perform a small, one-off credit transfer from a Telstra post-paid mobile without registration. You can also register to make larger transfers or set up a regular scheduled transfer.

To access Credit Me2U on your Telstra post-paid mobile, dial #100# and press send. Then select '2' and 'Send' to select 'Credit Me2U'. Follow the prompts to complete your transaction.

Please note recurring transfers need to be set up 24 hours in advance and require you to create a PIN. There is a 25c charge for each successful credit transfer. Any amount credited will be charged to your post-paid mobile bill, in addition to the monthly access charge.

Each Telstra post-paid mobile can transfer:

  • A maximum of $100 per month by one-off credit transfer
  • A maximum of $300 per month by scheduled transfer
  • A maximum of $400 per month combined one-off and scheduled transfers.

Hint: Make sure you check the mobile phone number and amount before sending as transferred credit cannot be reversed, or cancelled once confirmed.
