If you are bringing your own device to Telstra Pre-Paid, be sure to check that your device is Next G® compatible so that you can enjoy the full benefits of Telstra Pre-Paid. After 31 August 2012, 3G 2100MHz only devices will not be able to access 3G services and internet browsing will be slower. Check your device compatibility and find more information.
If you’ve got a mobile number that you would like to keep from another service provider, we’ll arrange this for you – this can currently only be done in a Telstra store.
