      The deal doesn't seem to exclude iPhones.
      It seems you can get an iPhone 11 Pro 64GB for $1249 = $1749-$500
      RYZEN's response of "No" appears to be quite misleading.

        The deal presented here is the heavily discounted Pixel/Galaxy purchase price on a 12 month contract.

        The deal you've shown is actually an old one for $500 voucher towards a $999+ phone when taken with a new 24 month contract. That deal has been on these pages at least twice already in recent memory.

        So no, not misleading - there's no big discount for iPhones on this 12 month plan

    So S10e would be $99 + (65*12) = $879?

      Yes, correct!

        Good to know, though the Ear buds promo just ended two weeks ago :(

        • +1 vote

          lol at that price i dont think the Earbuds are such a big loss. It was ~$900 for the phone with free buds plus a plan, or in this case ~900 including a plan. Pick up the buds for ~$150 and call it a fantastic day.

          • +1 vote

            @ADGRM: Yeah not too big of a loss. Just the funny thing was I was looking to replace my phone which I had dropped and also bought the buds separately around the timeframe of this same deal last time, which was during the free buds promotion.

    Was anybody charged the ETC last time or is it simply an urban myth Telstra uses to scare you not to cancel?

    The ETC is like the lochness monster of Ozb, everyone talks about it no one actually seen it!

    • +1 vote

      Friend tried it last time, got an ETC of around 340 after moving to casual Telstra plan via live chat

    • +1 vote

      We changed to a $50 month to month plan and then cancelled to avoid the ETC. We got an s10e for only $99. I think this has been "fixed" though.

    • +1 vote

      I was charged etc and had to show them my transcripts to get it waived

      • +1 vote

        I had the transcripts just in case but the etc never came, only an extra $1.02 which was pro-rata for the day we had the plan.

    It could be very hard to avoid the ETC, if you just want the phone itself

    • +1 vote

      Forgive my ignorance, but what's wrong with getting hit with the ETC here? If the ETC is only ~400 supposedly, wouldnt ot be viable to get a Pixel for well under the current RRP?

      • +2 votes

        There was a loophole waiving the ETC. So pixel4 for 199

        • -1 vote

          Explain, please, please

        • -9 votes

          Oh wow. Tbh I don't think I could even in good conscience accept a $199 Pixel 4. Thats insane.

          Do you think getting a Pixel 4 for $200, cancelling immediately, and receiving the $390 ETC making it $590 for the phone, would still be viable here?

        • +2 votes

          I was a bit late to the party last time, so not sure if it was just me but I think they closed that loophole and when wifey decided the screen was too small for her I had to sell it on ebay sealed without opening it for $680 :(

          Unfortunately I got charged the $390 ETF +$99 fone+ $65 for the month + ~$90 ebay and paypal fees & after selling $680-$644 cost, I only come out marginally in front but I did get the Bonus Galaxy Buds promo; but now that it is over, not so sure is worth the trouble to try profiting from it, especially with S11e around the corner soon, maybe more discounting on the handset seems likely. FYI, a credit check was conducted on my file as well.

          Still a decent deal compared with optus (locked in for 2 years) I think, especially if you intend to keep the fone, considering the price fair price of the fone outright is around $799 from any major retailer outside ebay after negotiatiing and you basically get free acecss for next 12 months worse case scenario compared with if you are buying the handset outright.

            @shopaholic32: How did she know the screen was too small unless you opened it to try it out?

            • +1 vote

              @Bangbus: coming from a LG V20 5.7" that was recently broken, I temporarily upgraded her to a large & cheap Huawei Y9 prime 6.59" and after using that for a month before I bought the s10e 5.8", she said there is no way she is ever goiug back to anything much smaller and would rather keep using the Y9 prime despite not having all the flagship advantage of the S10e….bar the 5.8" screen :(

      I bought the S10e 3 times, with the idea of keeping 1 phone for the wife and selling the other 2 to get a cheap plan for me and the daughter, and score 3 sets of Galaxy Buds.

      The first plan I was able to cancel without any mention of an ETC, but when the bill arrived they tried to sting me. I forced them to waive it via online chat when they realised they had never advised me there would be a fee.

      Despite wanting to keep the other 2 plans, out of curiousity I checked to see if I could cancel them (if so, you could rinse and repeat to make about $500 each time, plus the free ear buds!). During the online cancellation process for the other 2 it clearly stated there would be an ETC (unlike my first time when there was no such notice), so they obviously closed the loophole.

      Ultimately, I'm pretty certain there is now an ETC.

      Or it's just totally random. YMMV.

      • +1 vote

        Did you not try changing to the M2M plan back when the loophole was open?

        • +1 vote

          Yep, that's how I cancelled the first one by changing to M2M first. Changing the other 2 to M2M was going to attract a cancellation fee.

      • +1 vote

        Usually the ETC should be in the terms and conditions before you get anything shipped? Telstra is getting really random these days…

      • +2 votes

        I think you are right, prety sure loophole is now closed. I rang and spoke to 5 different people after I saw the bill but as I was too late to the party and they all said the $390 would apply as per the T&C. Sort of makes sense, otherwise they would loose massive $$$$$$. Kudos to you and other OZB'S brethren who got in early….as they say early bird gets the worm!
        Nevertheless, a decent deal if one is keeping the fone.

    Galaxy S10e stock mentions it's the Telstra variant. Does this mean software updates will come direct from Telstra?

    • +2 votes

      My Telstra Galaxy S8 received major updates through Telstra. However, all Australian carriers appeared to release them within a few days of each other.

      I might be incorrect about this, but IIRC, non-telco Australian Galaxy S8s received the update only about a week or less before the telco variants.

      • +1 vote

        Ok thanks. So are you saying each time Samsung have released an update Telstra have always followed with their update soon later?

        Is it likely there will come a time, when Telstra don't release an update despite Samsung doing so?

        • +2 votes

          In response to your first question, based on my experience, yes. However, this is Samsung releasing an update to Australia, the identical model overseas may receive an update 1-3 months prior to Australian handsets receiving it. I think you can probably get around this by manually flashing the update via Odin, but I haven't bothered with that on my S8. I have no idea if you lose features like VoLTE and VoWiFi if you manually flash these days.

          I cannot answer your second question, but given how popular Samsung devices are, I doubt it. Perhaps, and I am just hypothesizing here, if some major security flaw is found and patched several years after the usual Samsung security support period (3 years IIRC), Telstra is less likely to provide an update.

    Can one transfer out to optus/voda prepaid and then immediately port back in on this deal?

    Or is there a 30 day wait?

  • +2 votes

    Regarding previous deal i still haven’t received my Galaxy Buds Samsung haven’t even shipped them yet, i called them yesterday and the lady who i was talking to said i should get them by the 20th and she was very rude and disconnected the call but when i called 2 weeks ago another lady said i would receive them by the 13th, so i’m getting different stories and i filled out the details on the 8th of November. Has anyone else been having issues and haven’t received their Buds yet?

      I haven't received my buds. Submitted claim on 05/11, approved on 20/11 and is still not shipped.

        I've received 1 of the 3 sets I've redeemed. I've received an email in the past couple of days for the other 2. Each email took about the same amount of time to appear after submitting my redemption. Keep waiting, they'll turn up.

    Would anyone know if the pixel phone itself would be locked to Telstra? I'd like to get this phone using my wife's number (can be ported to telstra) but use it for myself (optus). I know I phones are not locked to a telco any idea on pixels?

    Are these phones good deals for those of us not looking to cheat the system and actually take on the telstra plan for 12 months or would the $500 gift card be a better deal with another phone?

      Not for 12 month contracts. 24 or 36 maybe.

          I don't know if it's still on but Harvey Norman had the S10e for the same price 2 year contract with optus and $300 gift card last week.

          It worked out slightly worse than buying up front from office works and using a boost 12 month plan and the salesman was a dick so I went that way instead. It did have a lot more data though.

  • +3 votes

    I took up this deal last month (s10e) and dropped back down to the $45 per month plan. The conditions are that you must wait one month and one day and re-contract to a lower plan, meaning your 12 months start again. Also, must be done in store at JB.

    • +1 vote

      Awesome…

    • +1 vote

      This sounds like it could make it a great deal.
      Any other fees or costs incurred by dropping down the plan?

      How can one recontract to a lower plan ?

    • +1 vote

      That sounds like a single store's policy that you have to wait to downgrade.

      I moved to the $45 in less than a week in September.

      Can I ask which stores you had success in? Sydney NSW?

      $45p/m (Which is 15GB) X 12 is a lot better IMO…

      Anyone had any luck with port in credit too?

      Yes, JB personnel mentioned today

    • +1 vote

      No cigar for me. I’ve been to two stores so far and they refuse to acknowledge that this can be done. They’re using the excuse that a contract is signed initially at $65, so that’s what it stays at. One JB rep even said Ozbargain website is an illegal site created by consumers to pressure retailers into “giveaways” lol.

      Wish JB was consistent with their policies across the board. Can’t be effed going to anymore stores. Otherwise would have been a great deal for me. I just don’t need the data since my current provider gives me 500GB data pool a month.

        why don't you try directly with Telstra? I am thinking about chatting with them and asking if i can change to $45 plan.

      • +1 vote

        Don't do it at jbhifi. Go to the good guys, tell them you are on a BYO 12 month plan and you want to downgrade (don't mention the pixel and if they ask just say it was the plan by itself). I tried many times at JB and Telstra chat. Good guys is only way to go.
