Hey, I haven't switched mobile networks for over 2 years and this is the first time I'm changing to save money ($60 over 6 months).
Recently a deal was posted here for lyca mobile 6(28days) x 20$ plan S groupon ~ I'm on the same prepaid plan which is well suited for me although I pay 30$ auto top up every 28 days.
In order to take advantage of this deal I have to be new customer, hence the carrier swap. With this comes the trouble I ordered free sim from optus didn't arrive for 4 days so bought one for 2$ along with 2$ lyca sim.
I was activating online for optus and found it frustrating as they ask me to recharge with prepaid plans, same for amaysim (confirmed via chat), ordered free sim from telstra which I hope will be delivered by Tue, but I think they do same as others. I get it telco needs to make some money but I'm taking a $10 + 2$ loss and all this stuff, still coming in ahead though.
Also I need to activate before end of Oct
So does anyone one to know if any network allows without paying a fee to swap.
TL DR - want to change network w/o paying any fee for top-up activation
