Yes, you can pay Telstra for a mobile handset in monthly instalments if you sign up to a Device Payment Contract (DPC) with an eligible post-paid mobile plan. 

A DPC lets you pay off your mobile or tablet in interest-free monthly repayments over 12 or 24 months while you have an eligible post-paid plan. DPCs are available to new and existing Telstra customers with an eligible post-paid plan.

You can only use a DPC to pay off your phone or tablet; your plan is billed separately. However, you must have an eligible post-paid plan, and can only have one DPC per plan at any time.

With selected mobile plans, you can receive a Device Plan Discount, which reduces the cost of your Device Payment Contract while you have that mobile plan. If you cancel the mobile plan, you’ll no longer receive the Device Payment Discount and will need to pay the remaining DPC payments in full.

Check your remaining DPC balance. If you’d like to proceed with cancelling your service, contact us and we’ll be able to help.
