When prompted select Upgrade Existing service.

The plan change fees are automatically waived off. No need to contact customer care via chat.

    If I changed to a current plan from my grandfathered plan I would be paying more for far less data & far less inclusions on roaming. Please check carefully that the deal is better before you move to these latest plans.

      Heads up they announced that by end of this year everyone will need to go on new plans as they will be completely retiring grandfathered plans to simplify their systems.

      •  

        If they do that they’ll need to let me out of contract early (will look carefully at bills for the detrimental notice) & then I will likely port away. Have had far too many issues on Telstra’s network in Brisbane CBD to be paying them the usual Telstra premium.

    Just moved using that link from the JB Hifi plans. Didn't see any exit $$$ hopefully they don't sting me with it.

    cant see upgrade existing. m missing something??

    •  

      You sure are. It’s literally the first thing shown when you select one of the four plans.

  •  

    personal plans are same cost as business now. I swapped 3 phones to the $50 plans and got $10 discount on each.

    FWIW it only seems to waive outstanding contact costs, and not outstanding handset repayments

    Keep in mind that the new plans got rid of data share.

  •  

    They changed the business rules when they launched the new plans.
    You can do it online, in store , over phone or live chat.
    There are no exit fees if you change to new plan provided you stay at same or higher value $$$ wise.

    If you on a handset plan you will trigger a handset payout though just FYI.

    Changed my 12m sim to new m2m a week or so ago.

  •  

    If I do this, can I just port out once the plan had been changed?

    I'm on a JB HI-FI plan that will expire Sept 30. I'd like to switch to boost and I think this would be a good way to avoid the ETC.

    So switch to new Telstra plan, then port next day.

    •  

      I am not sure if Telstra will bill you for a part month, if not you would have to pay $50 for the month with telstra and also $30(assumed) with boost for the same month.

  •  

    If you have a ABN better off on business now as the plans are the same and data is shareable. Personal used to be better, cheaper and more data.

  •  

    Its not worth when you are paying $45 per month for 30gig data and Pixel 2 on plan. Does anyone can do better than this to move from plan to month2 month?

  •  

    anyone know if after you transfer from the contract to m2m, you can move up and down the plans? basically I'm looking at a $65 plan through jb, then moving to an $80 m2m, then moving down to the $60?

  •  

    Doing this , will I lost my Telstra phone credit ?
