681

Spotted this in JB the other night, took a photo today. Seems to be similar to the popular mothers day offer, but without the phone cost instead of the limited voucher.

Huawei P30 $0 Upfront when you port your number to Telstra on a $65 plan over 24 months.
Plan includes unlimited talk & text to Australian numbers and 80GB of data for use within Australia. Mininum cost $1560 over 24 months.

    Nothing like the previous offer, that was for only 12 months and also with the eGift card made the phone free. Plus lots of people managed to get the monthly charge down to 49

    Not a bad deal

    Huawei P30 is going for around $1000 these days so essentially it is around 600 for 24 months with telstra on 80gb a month - good if you need a new phone

  •  

    Would this deal qualify for the $10 port in credit?

    •  

      Wouldn't think so reading that…. says for porting in as it is…

      DUring the previous deal - I got the $65 per month deal for 12 months with the P30, then contacted Telstra and got the $10 port in credit and also moved to the $59 plan Telstra was running - ended up with $49 per month with free P30 ( after gift card )

        I still hit myself in the head for not jumping on that deal.

      •  

        I tried to ask for the port in credit and the Telstra rep asked me for someone else's number who got it on the same plan as proof :(

          I got $20 discount after sent Tyrx's screen shot to Telstra rep on chat.

          •  

            @jimz666: wasn't aware people were getting another $10 off port-in credit. I have signed up the 12 month jb hi fi plan. Any chance they'll still add the port-in credit now?

              @hazwing: Just getting this changed to $49 per month now on live chat!

              Thank you ozbargain!

              •  

                @hazwing: @hazwing, did you get $20 off too? What else did you say other than can i please have the port in credit?!

                •  

                  @knebnn: Yeah came down to $49 per month, includes peace of mind data and international calls

                  I just said that I had recently signed up the jb hi fi plan, read there was a better plan with a port-in credit from telstra. And then quoted what other people had gotten for the plan. It was pretty easy to do online via the telstra chat… or maybe I had a nice rep?

      •  

        Did you get your gift card? Still waiting for mine to come through. Probably going to have to chase it up.

  •  

    any chance of getting this deal already being a Telstra customer? It was a mess last time i ported out for a couple days with vodaphone and tried to port in. I managed to do it but it was painful. Thanks in advance

    I'm still with Optus for a couple more months. Would Telstra cover my my cancellation fee?? I heard they were doing it for the previous deal

    I signed up for the $55/month deal with 80GB and a P20 Pro.
    The network is good, as in much higher speeds than I never need, but customer service is not so good.

    • I have tried 3 times to get them to disable voicemail. Each time, voicemail stayed active while "international day pass" was enabled.
    • While overseas, with data roaming off and even network data off, I got line items for data usage in my bill. It was a measly $0.042 in total, but obviously shouldn't happen. I reported it - they said the only way to fix it was disabling roaming altogether, and told me "great news, we are refunding the $0.04!"

    They're really quite hopeless.

    I was hoping they give Mate 20 pro instead of p30

      P30 and s10e sales are low, so they are moving them thru deals ( the salesman's comment when I signed up )

      •  

        The salesman did not tell you Huawei is facing big troubles at the moment. Eventually they have to get rid of all hot potatoes….

        • -1 vote

          This salesman comment was couple of weeks back mate.

          Their latest trouble will boil down soon just like it did with ZTE. ZTE was a relatively smaller fish with lots relying on US technologies, Huawei has been prepared for this with their own fabrication etc, so even if they don't sort it out, they will figure a way out

  •  

    Is a saturated market. I was fortunate enough to get the P30 on a 12 month plan @$55pm. Great phone.

    The looming threat for Huawei is that they are blocked from accessing networks or using Android.

    Network blocks have happened before, for a different reason, network operators prevented the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 from accessing voice or data services so owners would return them due to the explosion issue.

    If things keep escalating with Huawei, this could be a step the USA takes, Australia will then follow.

    Additionally, the legislation currently being reviewed in the USA prohibits exports of Technology to Huawei without US government approval, similar to how its prohibited for intel to sell CPU's to Iran. The speculation at the moment is that this will prevent Huawei from being allowed to install the Android operating system.

    •  

      happened with zte …..no updates for 12 mths …..finally usa eased off.

    •  

      So if and thats a big if that ever happens, what responsibly would telstra have, given they supplied the phone on a plan to access their network?
      If all of as sudden the p30 is unabld to connect, or opperate, should they (telstra) be responsible in supplying a different phone?

      Australia doesn't have a will to have its own voice. Whatever US says - Australia to follow and participate. Any stupid wars. I won't be surprised if Australia will send troops to fight against Iran if stupid Trump to fire up another global confict in Persian Gulf. Die for nothing…

  •  

    how much penalty to pay if bailing out of the plan?

  •  

    Any idea if the phone is locked to Telstra?

  •  

    why optus doesn't join these kind of deal? p30+365 days sims card, i could do it for total of around $850…

  •  

    Wow. Great deal if you can really use all that data

    •  

      me and ny wife signed the 24m p20 pro deal last Dec,with 80g each,we cancelled our wifi,which saves us 60/m

    How much it cost if you sign up and cancel contract same day? I loved the Optus deal I got on my Samsung Galaxy

    With Huawei you get the bonus of not only our government spying on you, but also the Chinese.

    24 months? I'd think about it if it's 12 month contract

  • +2 votes

    2 year contract isn't that interesting…

  •  

    I mean..

    Great deal kind of?

    Who really needs 80Gb a month though? Unless it was your only internet source.

    This might be the last generation of P series and Huawei will be gone and removed from telcos,
    Save it 4 memory.

    It's not the best but it's not the worst either. A comparable plan with Optus is $85 a month.

    I profited from the last JB P30 deal, but I was luckier than most.

    I'd say $760ish over 24 months (assuming $800 sale of P30), or $31.67 a month for 80GB on Telstra is reasonable!

    •  

      How much were you able to sell your P30 for?

      •  

        The crucial part is it was a 12 month plan last time. The cancellation fee is $300 something. Sure the phone can sell for at least $650 so its an almost guarantee $300 profit, more if you manage to find a dumb axx who pays more.

        Don't count on it happening again soonm I honest think JB make a mistake on that last deal, it should be a 24 month plan….. thank you JB HIFI

          Shawstuff & wellzi

          If that was true then you guys got lucky. With the current code PHOENIX the price to as low as 768 and that is from a store. Seems Ebay has more dumb axx than I though.

          Anyway the momentum seem to be gone now for Huawei as no more expensive speaker and gift card rebate. I seriously doubt the price can hold on for long.

          On the other hand, don't see Samsung doing deals like this to move handsets. Shows you the AUS market is still very brand oriented. I honestly think Huawei need to invest in stores before it can start competing with Samsung.

        I sold mine on eBay $825 delivered. Had free selling fees, and after postage and Paypal fees made $785.

      •  

        I sold mine $800 + $20 post - $23 paypal fee via eBay free list & sell promo. I think post was $15ish.

        I kept the plan, got onto Telstra live chat, switched to the 70GB $59 plan and got the $10 port in credit for a $49 monthly plan.

        They're still listed for around the same price. :)

        As syswong said, the huge difference in this case is that it was a 12 month plan and $200 cash back (via Wish eGift Card).

    •  

      That deal is used for JB hifi because P30 and s10e was not doing great in terms of sales. I wouldn't consider this a good deal not because it 2 years contract, but the fact that p30 is the only option. If they give away other phone like Mate 20 pro or other samsung phone, I would say that this is still a good deal.

      •  

        True, and I agree with what you're saying, but I'm taking it from a SIM only perspective. :)

  •  

    Anyone managed to get $10 port-in credit for this P30 24 months plan? Contacted Live Chat today, however they advise that port-in credit has ended.

    •  

      I knew this was coming. I was tossing up between the $500 card or P30. Glad the right side flipped for me!!

    •  

      They don't know about it, they just put p30 on sales because the phone was not doing good in terms of sales. If they knew about it, they probably will do promotion for P30 pro and mate 20 pro as well.

  •  

    Anyone gonna try returning their P30 to JB Hi-Fi because of the Huawei ban?

    Just got mine on this deal on Saturday and it would suck not being able to access certain apps and updates..

    •  

      Consumer Law “should” kick in for everyone who has bought a Huawei phone. Feel a bit sorry for Huawei, however, when their mantra is to be the biggest Mobile Telecoms Company in the world (backed by the Chinese Govt) - that makes you have a big target on your back.
