Activate your Pre-Paid

Whether you've purchased a Pre-Paid tablet from Telstra, or have your own Telstra 4G compatible device, you can take advantage of Australia's largest national mobile broadband network on the Pre-Paid Mobile Broadband Offer. Remember, your device, tablet or iPad needs to support 3G-850MHz to get the full benefit of the Telstra Mobile Network. And, because it's Pre-Paid, you have a range of flexible recharge options to choose from when you top up your data, with no need to be locked into a 12 or 24-month fixed term contract.

Critical Information Summary

Things you need to know

If you have a tablet device that is SMS capable you’ll receive SMS alerts when you use 50%, 85% and 100% of your International Prepaid Plus Browse pack allowance. If you have set up Balance Based Recharge on your service, we’ll also send you SMS alerts every time you use more than $100 of ‘pay as you go’ data. Our spend management tools help you monitor your international roaming usage. For more information, including how to register for these tools, visit telstra.com/manageirusage.

If you recharge your service before your recharge expiry date, the new credit expiry date for your recharge amount will be the longer of either:
the expiry date for your existing balance (before you recharged); or
the expiry date for your new recharge amount.

Delays of up to 48 hours may apply for picture, audio and video message charges to be deducted from your account. Go to our rates page for a complete list of call rates and options on international calling.
