Will I be charged for calls made to me in Australia by cold callers?

I am currently on holiday in Australia for 3 weeks from UK.

I have disabled internet access as I only want my partner to be able to contact me by text or phone, but I keep getting calls day & night from companies cold calling for business from the uk. I dont answer these calls, but will I be charged for them?

You will only be charged if you answer them. You could put their nos., if you know them, to be blocked on your phone

Hi @Pezzer and welcome to the Community.

 

Just on the back of what @XRaySpeX has mentioned, if you do have a voicemail setup you would be charged for the caller leaving one.

 

Many thanks,

@Lee_H: No, you are not charged a caller leaving a VM, only if you pick it up.
