Suspended And Unsuspended Services

Suspended and Unsuspended Services

When a service is ‘Suspended’ it means it is completely inaccessible to the customer.


When do services get suspended?

Services are usually suspended due to credit management (overdue accounts)

  • Services suspended by credit management should only have suspension lifted after a cleared payment of the full outstanding amount is received by SpinTel. Sending in copies of payment receipts for BPAY or direct deposit is not sufficient. Confirmation of a cleared payment is required before lifting restriction or suspension.
  • This is a live system, so if customer pays by a credit card we can lift suspension from their services immediately.
  • If a customer is either too far behind in their payments or has defaulted on a payment extension after being given more than ample time and opportunity to make a payment, the credit management process is initiated.
  • If a customer’s payment is dishonoured on the due date (14th or 28th of each month) we will notify the customer and re-attempt the payment after 3 business days from the due date, if this payment is rejected credit management processes are put in place and their services are suspended until payment is received.
  • Customers with an outstanding balance lower than $15 will not be suspended.

They are also sometimes suspended when a service is stolen e.g a mobile or mobile broadband is lost or stolen and customer calls to advise, we would normally suspend the service especially when organizing a replacement sim

How long does it take to unsuspend?
