    note: This is a 4GX model with Telestra unlocked and works best with Telstra. I tried price match and Good Guys and they rejected as it is 4GX

  • the deal is back. goto Office works to match

    • Let me know how you go with Office Works.

    • Officeworks won't price beat as 4GX

    • Good luck with that Telstra Variant S10.

  • How long is this deal for?

  • I have heard of 4G and 5G models, what is 4GX?

      • so 700 MHz a.k.a. Band 28. It should work fine with other bands. I think the startup animation will have Telstra branding but it's unlocked. Will test this phone out soon.

    • Telstra model, they like to be different. Uses their 4G radios that are different frequencies

      • Ok thanks guys

      • Are these 'telstra 4g' radios OK for roaming OS? Or even other local networks? Surprised there is different hardware in there…

          • @richadam: So if I buy the 'Optus' S10 it won't work on Telstra's 700 Mhz network?

            • @fedaykin: It's not that it wont work it's just that you may not get the full coverage as the optus version won't have the 700 Mhz band antenna.

              • @richadam: Why would Samsung make an S10 specially for Optus that doesn't have 700 Mhz band in the radio?

                • @fedaykin: I don't know, can't speak for Optus but this is pretty normal to supply slightly different variants to different markets.

                  • @richadam: Yeah, markets means regions/countries. We get global/Asia/Oceania phones, no special "disable a band for a telco". That can be done in firmware, but I haven't seen that in a while. SIM unlocked phones don't have anything like that. These "branded" phones just have preinstalled apps and sometimes a boot up screen.

    Might want to add s10+ for $1.199 as well

    How is this a deal?

    You can buy the same phone direct from Telstra for $900 if you signup for a $15 per month data plan.

    You can then cancel the data plan as soon as you get the phone, meaning the phone basically costs $900 including delivery to your home.

    Buds bonus applies from Telstra as well.

    So $999 at JB or $900 at Telstra?

    • Was going to say similar.
      Sister just got one for $900, added to her existing plan.
      No idea why it’s more expensive with this deal, maybe I Store is different to online prices.

      • I can't find the link for the $15 plan and get the phone at $900 though….

        • https://www.telstra.com.au/mobile-phones/mobiles-on-a-plan/s...

          S10 is $720 now at Telstra (was $900 previously) vs $999 at JB

          However they have now changed their conditions so if you cancel your plan, you must pay the full undiscounted remaining cost the phone.

          So outright from JB a better deal.

          2 days ago you could cancel and payout the device at the undiscounted price!

    • That's not just $99 cheaper. From Telstra you also get a sim with 5GB of data each month (handy home Internet backup) and you get to pay for the phone in installments over a 12 month period.

      EDIT: Actually, wait, I'm confused how this works out as $900; assuming you can do it at all, online support are currently saying you can't. Because right now the minimum spend for an S10 $720. I was assuming 12 months of $15/mo is where the other $180 comes from. However, you can't buy the S10 over 12 months, you need to buy it over 24 months. In which case you're looking at $1080 total.
