Remember payphones? They’re still kicking around and if you’ve got one near you, the kids can get in touch with the jolly man in red right now, without needing to scrounge up coins.

In the spirit of connecting during Christmas, Telstra wants to make sure Aussie kids get the chance to speak to Santa. So, kids can call Santa free from Telstra payphones, and let him know everything they have on their wishlist. All kids need to do is dial #HO HO HO (#46 46 46) from any Telstra payphone from now up until Christmas Eve. And it won’t cost a cent.

It’s a chance to spread a little extra Christmas cheer, and with more than 15,000 payphones still scattered across Australia, kids should be able to find one nearby. And here’s a little sweetener – for every call made to Santa from a Telstra payphone, Telstra will donate $1 to The Salvation Army.

So what are you waiting for – take a stroll to your nearest payphone and dial up the Christmas fun!

  • I think this is an absolutely brilliant initiative. How exciting for a child to think they’re really talking to Santa.
