    data free music streaming

    Wait what which music streaming service this is pretty much all I use my data for.. Well and sometimes to watch the music videos but hey if we get free data music streaming I'll switch to that.

    I wonder if it includes downloading the songs for offline play if you have the premium plan with said service.

    Anyone know which music streaming service it is or is it all of them? Highly unlikely.

    Peeps using boost hows network coverage in Melbourne outter suburbs and cbd?

    • +1 vote

      I'm interested too, compared to Optus.

      • +1 vote

        For me it's the only reliable network when you go into shopping centers (especially underground or multi storey) and hospitals / rehab centers.

        If you go to remote areas it's the only network with reception at all.

    •  

      if you can get 4G signal then its fine, but when it drops to 3G its slow - Have Telstra has refarmed their 3G capacity and now its mostly for calls?

      I was on Kogan (Vodafone) before and it performed better in CBD for 3g and 4g. But Boost is miles better in the outer suburbs. There was no reception at Hanging rock for example but Telstra has full bars.

      Yes my phone does have B28.

    Interested in any feedback on their coverage and service in and around Brisbane.

    • 150gb 12 months was 200, now 180 -> This is for 6 months, not 12.
  •  

    Sorry if this has been asked but can these be used to top up?
    My 12 month 80gb expires in July and was curious if I top up now would it expire July 2021?

    • +3 votes

      No.

      These are starter packs not recharges so you would have to port out and back in to use, and even if it was the recharge voucher (like often goes on sale at Coles), it wouldn’t extend your expiry it would wipe out whatever you’ve got remaining and start a new 12 months.

    There seems to be a few questions about the Boost coverage in comparison to Telstra, the answer, Boost Mobile is identical to Telstra in speed and coverage.
    The following is from Whirlpool Wiki site; NETWORK, The service is provided over Telstra's full 3G & 4G networks.
    Coverage is equivalent to Telstra, and Boost Mobile customers have full, unrestricted access to all Telstra towers. Boost are the only Telstra-equivalent MVNO.
    While there have previously been debates on Whirlpool (and elsewhere) suggesting Boost customers have capped speeds, these statements are anecdotal and incorrect.
    Just as with Telstra Prepaid, users receive full speeds (unlike other Telstra MVNOs where speed is capped at 100mbps).
    Unlike other Telstra resellers, Boost accesses the full Telstra 4G network including 4GX.

    The following is from the Boost Mobile website; Boost Mobile is on the full Telstra Mobile Network. With Boost you’ll get 3G and 4G coverage on the Telstra Mobile Network.

      Been using over past 5 months, at train stations Town Hall & Central the reception can be vary, one day full the other day only 1 bar, same phone same waiting spot for train. While Optus seems more stable on 3 or full bar. Also a few dead spots in the office while com's mobile on Telstra has no issue and always full bar, swap sim and result same as Telstra always full bar.

      Would feel like a gap filler or lower priority when compare to Telstra, tried yourself before sign up for 1 year, the $30/$40 packs randomly on half price.

    Obligatory comment - Lot of port in issues.

    • -1 vote

      Agreed, been trying to port in from Kogan. Waited nearly a week and still no word if it failed or still in progress..

    • -1 vote

      Not true - if you have your current plan setup correctly AND you enter all the correct details when you sign up the porting process is really quick (mine was less than 20 minutes).

      • -1 vote

        depends on your personal detail in Gov database, I port 4 in only 2 works, last 2 took over 3 tries on chat and finally phone call to sort out.

        • +1 vote

          What do you mean by Gov database? I've ported many times over the years and It's worked every single time without fail. Some are quicker than others but it all comes down to how long they take to initiate the request and your personal details (name, DOB and account number if required).

  •  

    Is this same prepaid officeworks is selling for $150? so I can get price beat?

  •  

    Does Boost allow stacking? Still got like 6 months left

  •  

    when do we have to activate by ?

  •  

    come on Kogan .. put your price down

  •  

    can i port in from existing Telstra number?

    • +1 vote

      yes - but you need to either:
      change your ac to prepaid telstra - then call boost and order a blind sim as normal boost sim will not work
      OR (the method I used)
      port out to VF or other
      then port back in

    The 12 month plan rocks. $36 a month with a brand new Galaxy every 2 years.

    •  

      Huh, how does that work? (I think I'm missing something)

    •  

      A new Galaxy phone for $594 (80GB plan) or even better $324 (240GB plan). Now that'd be a deal worth sharing!

      Unfortunately, I think you may have miscalculated ;)

    •  

      Buy S10 from Samsung EPP $900, sell old galaxy on eBay $300 +2 yrs boost 12 mth $270 = $870 over 2 years.

      •  

        Including the sale price of old device is probably a smidge misleading. As you could apply that logic to any phone plan (rental plans have gone by the wayside), its subject to sale price, assumes the phone doesn't get smashed etc. and there are also people like me who like to keep their old phones and/or pass them on to family etc.

        However, all in all though, that sounds like a reasonable plan. However, this S10 for $900 you speak of… EPP? Employee Purchase Program?

        I suppose one would have to be a Samsung employee to get in on that?

        •  

          Enhanced Partnership Program, only available to employees of companies that have a partnership with Samsung. Great deals come up for everyone though, like the s10e deal that was just posted at JB for $799.

      •  

        @Stimps This makes a lot of sense to me and I try to do similar. I'm a bit of a Pixel fanboy and I buy a new Pixel each year usually within 2 months of being released then I sell my old Pixel on eBay with the remainder of a 2 year warranty. Obviously this idea works with any phone, iPhone Samsung whatever. So by Christmas a deal will come out where the Pixel is on sale for around $1,000, so I buy it, keep the receipt, never touch the contents of the box as I already have fast chargers and cables and I don't like the in ear headphones, so when I sell it on eBay I get at least $500 for it, as buyers like a phone with warranty and the contents of the box untouched. Anyhow I always sell the phone when eBay has one of their regular sell free or sell for $1 promos. So with this Boost plan and paying for the phone, it puts me at under $55 per month for a new flagship phone each year and over 6GB data each month.
        Dropping the phone and smashing the screen would wreak havoc on my tightwad master plan!!

    I have received a Boost blank SIM in preparation for porting over from Telstra.
    Can I take advantage of these "starter kit" discounts, or must I opt for a full-price recharge?

  •  

    When you try purchase:

    We will be back online shortly

    Well, that's not reassuring. Also the "24x7" live chat is down…

  •  

    So, the whole "blank sim required" thing, porting from Telstra…

    Has anyone not used a blank SIM, and instead used a regular Boost SIM? If so what happened?

    The reason I ask is last time I was with Boost (~3 years ago) I intentionally activated a Telstra prepaid SIM card on Boost; had to contact Boost support to do this. In doing so it gave me access to Telstra's 4G network, where as at the time Boost were 3G only.

    So what I'm asking is, will not using a blank SIM actually cause the service to not work, or will it simply confuse Telstra's systems into granting you access to things you shouldn't have access to?

    •  

      For the $300 recharge I received a sim with $300 on it.

      For the $150 plan I purchase a $2 boost sim in the same transaction, activate the $2 Sim and then top it up using the voucher code to. All this and porting can be done in the same web sign up session.

      To answer my own question…

      https://community.boost.com.au/t5/Recharge-Network-Support/A...

      It seems that by not using a blank SIM you'll run into an issue sending SMS. Specifically, it sends SMS from the phone number associated with the starter bundle SIM, rather than the number you've ported across to Boost.

  •  

    Please ignore my ignorance but the data is the total for the whole plan and not monthly right?

  •  

    I ported from lebara to boost yesterday around 5pm, took only around 2 mins, that's lightning fast.

  •  

    I ported from Aldi today and it took 10 mins in total.
    What's all this fuss about porting times?

  • +2 votes

    Recently ported Telstra pre paid (switched from post paid) to Boost and it was instant literally… My call with Boost was cut off as soon as the customer service person did the port.

    •  

      Did you need to port to blank sim first?

      •  

        Yes but that was the final step. Just one port Telstra prepaid into the blank SIM.

        •  

          what were the steps?
          1. Call Telstra to switch from postpaid to prepaid
          2. Do you need to top up prepaid so you can reply to the sms confirmation
          3. Port from prepaid to Boost blank
          4. Wait for the switch over
          5. Done

          •  

            @Ninja9: Pretty much. Call up Boost to request for a blank SIM first. May take a few days to get it. That way you don't lose any connection.

  • +1 vote

    Can someone tell me what happens when you use up the data, can you still make calls?

  •  

    I thought I completed an order by PayPal yesterday but there is no confirmation email or anything since. No charge on card as well.

    Is this very typical with Boost Mobile?

  •  

    boost charges data per KB right?

  • +1 vote

    Silly question but what happens if data get used before 12 months is finished?

    •  

      You can still keep using calls & texts. Or recharge with another voucher to top up data.

  •  

    Does anyone know if the plan starts as soon as you buy it?

  •  

    Bit confusing re porting from Telstra.
    Im on a telstra plan which i want to switch from and have purchased one of the $150 boost sims. Woll it work?

    • +2 votes
      1. Call this number (Telstra) 1800 100 933 and say I want to "port from Telstra to Boost Mobile, I need a special blank Boost Mobile SIM"

      2. blank sim will arrive

      3. Call 1258887 from your telstra phone to "switch to prepaid sim to port from telstra to Boost" (this was a bit annoying to get through the call centre)

      4. Wait a few hours for PREPAID to show up in your telstra app

      5. Call Boost on 1800 026 678 to activate

      6. Swap SIMs when your Telstra SIM goes dead.

      7. Call them back after it activates to transfer the credit you bought over (have to do this after you have an activated service.

      IT'S THAT EASY….

    Hi does anyone have any experience porting from Optus to Boost? Can this be done by ordering a sim from Boost (this deal) then talk to their rep via online chat like what I have done before? Thanks.

      I ported from voda last week on Sunday .
      Didn’t work online had to call them .
      Took about 5 mins for port to go through.
      I bought $2 sim from local shop and after port went through did the recharge online .
      Not sure if that helps you or not .

  •  

    Anyone know when these deal will be expire.

    Can I port from belong (postpaid) to boost (this deal)?

    As it can call to Unlimited standard calls and text to 20 selected destinations. Plus 600 standard mins & texts to 35 selected destinations. Then, I selected Cambodia it means I can call 600 mins for a whole year free. Isn't correct?

    Thanks you!

    Officeworks now stock these SIM cards, so you should be able to price beat to get the $150 one for $128.25 :)

  •  

    If it helps anyone, I ported from Belong Mobile to Boost today. I kept getting errors on the usual activate boost website, so I just went through the "chat" and gave all the usual details. Name, DOB, driver licence, number, provider (Belong & Prepaid is what I declared - others have said to state it's postpaid. I had success stating it's prepaid. YMMV). Initiated through chat at 2.29pm and was completed by 5.00pm. Boost Sim card now in and working as expected.
