Hi @GertR

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

I've located your account using your Community details.

 

When you sign up with TPG account, you are charged a $20 pre-payment fee to cover usage that is not included in your plan. When your prepayment balance reaches $10 it is automatically topped up to its original $20. It appears you incurred usage charges outside your plan’s included value which was deducted from your pre-payment.

 

I was able to look in to your account and learned that your payment is still in progress. For direct debit payments, it usually takes 3-4 working days to be posted.

 

I recommend having a read of this TPG Community article regarding TPG $20 Prepayment Outside Included Value which can help you with this query.

 

Let us know should you need further assistance.

Hi, In my case I'm trying to dial TO a TPG subscriber and getting that EXACT same message. So it shouldn't stop calls going to a subscriber should it, unless they are cut off - but as they pay by direct debit they shouldn't be. 

 

Is this just a generic announcment that goes out whenever the TPG lines go down? Smiley Frustrated

Hi BasilDV

 

I'm not and TPG customer, but I get this message a lot when I try to call people who are TPG customers. It's been going on for a long time. I got through to the person I was calling after about 30 mins of the message starting. They said no one was using the landline at  that time so it sounds to me the TPG exchange and network are faulty.
