Basic troubleshooting

If your handset is not working please try following steps:

  • Turn the phone off

  • Remove battery and SIM card from the handset

  • Put the battery and SIM back in the handset and turn your phone on again

  • If still not working, try your SIM in another handset. This will help you determine if the problem is your SIM card or your handset

  • If the SIM is working in an another handset - that means there is an issue with your handset or potentially your handset is locked to a different provider

  • If the SIM card is not working in another handset - that means it is most likely issue with your SIM

If it is an issue with your SIM card, please raise a support request via My Dodo.

If you suspect an issue with the handset, we suggest you contact the manufacturer.

Use your mobile data on other devices

Also known as tethering, Mobile Hotspot allows the sharing of an internet connection from one device to another via Wi-Fi.

For information on how to enable this, please refer to your device manual.

Help with your new mobile service

New Number

If you are activating a new number, ensure your new Dodo SIM card is inserted and seated correctly in your device. We also recommend that you power cycle your handset/hardware after activation.

To power cycle your device, simply turn it off for 30 seconds, then turn it back on again.

Transferring your number to Dodo

When transferring a number to Dodo, we suggest you leave your original SIM in your device until it stops working.

When your old service has stopped working, turn your device off, remove your old SIM card, insert your new Dodo SIM card, and turn your device back on.


If you have tried the above steps, and are still having difficulty, please raise a support request at MyDodo.

Scam calls

You should also report the call to Scamwatch at


How can I detect a scam call or SMS?

With scammers becoming more sophisticated, calls and SMS can sometimes appear to originate from a credible source such as a government agency or other well-known organisations. Go with your first instinct and never respond to a request for personal or account information, demand for immediate payment or remote access to a device.

Although these calls and SMS can appear to be genuine, credible sources generally don’t ask for this type of information over the phone or in an SMS, so it is important to be vigilant. Scammers may also:

  • Claim that you have won a prize

  • Use a well-known logo or send an SMS that appears to be legitimate

  • Call or SMS multiple times

  • Use a recorded message to urge you to return the call

  • Add a link in an SMS to get more information


How can I protect myself from scam calls and SMS?

If something doesn’t look or sound right, or if something is too good to be true, it usually is. To help safeguard yourself, you should:

  • Do not respond to missed calls or SMS from unknown international numbers

  • Block any numbers on your phone that you suspect to be a scam call or SMS

  • If you don’t know the number, let the call go through to voicemail in the first instance. Then check if the number is from a credible source by searching for the organisation’s official number online before returning the call

  • Be careful where you share any personal information in an online setting such as social media

  • Avoid clicking on any unknown links in text messages

  • Immediately contact your financial institution if you believe you may have lost money to a scam


How do I report a scam call or SMS?

You can contact Dodo directly or make a report to Scamwatch, a division of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.


Where can I find more information?

The following agencies provide helpful material on scam calls and SMS:
