What Is The Real Telstra Free Assistance Directory Number?

Wouldn’t you know it, Telstra not satisfied with making millions of dollars off of us have decided to provide a service that will charge us when a free service already exists. I know this because of the following email I just received.

For  all Australian respondents..
Telstra  Phone book
For  anyone contemplating using the Sensis directory  service number, 1234, DON’T!
Sensis,  as you may or may not know, is a subsidiary of  Telstra.
The  1234 number is replacing the Telstra 12456  directory assistance number, but this time with  outrageous costs attached: 40c to call the  number, then 4c A SECOND!
By  law, Telstra must provide a FREE directory  assistance number.
They  choose however not to pass this number on to the  public
The  free number  is 1223
Thumbs  down to Telstra for finding a way to ‘charge’,  for a service that is supposed to be provided  for free.
Of course, feel free to forward  this  on.

Rather than forwarding it on to everyone I thought it best to post it here as I reckon it will get far more exposure this way.
