Simple answer is no! 

If you’re transferring your mobile number from Telstra over to Belong, as part of the sign-up process you’ll provide the number you’re going to transfer along with a few details like your data of birth or account number depending on what type of mobile service. We will send you a verification code to make sure it’s you, then it’s all taken care of.

If you’re transferring your nbn from Telstra over to Belong, because you are already connected to the nbn and you don’t require an appointment, it’s all done behind the scenes and nbn will make the necessary changes on their side to disconnect your Telstra nbn service for you when connected with Belong.

Yes. Belong offers a bring your own device option when signing up to any of their Belong nbn plans. Just make sure you select that option when going through check out. Just note that Belong doesn’t offer 4G back-up, so if you have a Smart Modem it won’t automatically switch over when there is an outage.
