Calls to 1900 numbers are barred automatically across the Optus Thuraya Satellite Service. In GSM mode, calls to 1900 numbers can only be barred if we also bar international calls which will disable satellite calls.
TEMPORARY SUSPENSION of the service by you
Can you temporarily suspend the service?
If the agreement is a non fixed-length agreement, we may temporarily suspend the service at your request. We may need to disable international roaming from your service to temporarily suspend the Thuraya Satellite Service component.
Will you be charged a fee for temporarily suspending the service?
We may charge you a fee for temporarily suspending the service.
Will you have to pay access fees whilst the service is temporarily suspended?
You will not have to pay access fees whilst the service is temporarily suspended.
For how long can we temporarily suspend the service?
The maximum length of time the service can be temporarily suspended is three months.
If you wish to extend the temporary suspension for longer than three months, you must contact us before the end of the three month period or we may reactivate or cancel the service.
We are entitled to refuse to extend the temporary suspension beyond the three month period.
barring as an alternative to suspension
We may choose to bar outgoing and/or incoming calls and/or content on your mobile phone, instead of suspending the service.
If we bar outgoing and/or incoming calls and/or content on your mobile phone, we may later suspend or cancel the service for the same or a different reason.
