Our lease plans

With our lease plans, you’re leasing your eligible phone on a 24 month Device Lease Contract with a service plan – you don’t own the device.

If you upgrade, you must return your old phone. If you signed up to a lease plan prior to 22nd August 2017, you must return your old phone within 30 days of entering your new eligible service plan. If you signed up to a lease plan from the 22nd August 2017 onwards, you’ll need to return your old phone within 14 days of entering your new eligible service plan. If you don’t return it, we’ll charge you a non-return fee, which is up to the device’s fair market value (to be advised at the time) plus 20%.

At the end of your lease, you must return the phone undamaged. If it’s damaged, you’ll pay the damage fee. If you don’t return it, (subject to our approval) you’ll continue to pay your monthly lease payments for up to 6 months, then a non-return fee of the device’s fair market value (to be advised at the time).

You can offer to purchase your phone device at the end of lease. Be sure to remove the SIM and any personal or confidential data from the device before returning it.

If you cancel your lease early or we terminate it for your breach before month 12, you must pay a fee based on the RRP of your device (at the time of leasing) which decreases by 3% each month (or part thereof) up until the date at which you terminate in addition to any ETC’s payable in respect of your Eligible Plan and any accessories under an Accessories Repayment Option and you will then own the device. If you cancel early or we terminate it for your breach after month 12, you can return the handset and pay $99 if it's undamaged or up to $499 if it is damaged or you can keep it and pay fair market value (to be advised at the time) and then own the device. All of these fees and payments are on top of any early termination charges for your service plan and accessories.

Telstra Swap Assure: Mobile Swap Assure can be taken up at the time you take up your handset and plan for $10 per month and lets you upgrade your device regardless of damage to a new device at any time provided you pay an upgrade fee of $190, return the damaged device to us and enter into a new 24 month eligible device and mobile service plan. 

On and from 22 August 2017, if you take up Mobile Swap Assure, you will only be able to upgrade your device two times within each 12 month anniversary of your Go Mobile Swap plan.

At the end of your lease contract you must return your device to us and with Mobile Swap Assure, if your device is damaged pay an additional fee of $190, or you may buy your device for fair market value (to be advised at that time). You may cancel Mobile Swap Assure or Business Lease Assure at any time in which case the relevant standard fees and charges for your lease contract will apply.
