Critical information summary

Learn how to change your plan

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.

What you need to activate your Pre-Paid


New Telstra device or SIM starter kit

You'll need to enter either the Service (mobile) number or SIM serial number that is on your packaging.
