    3 years for a contract when you probably only get 2 years for warranty

    • +2 votes

      I'd he confident they'd be required to repair under the life of the contract.

      • +7 votes

        See here is the thing
        its no contract, you are on finance for the phone with 36 payments, same as if you buy a TV on 5 years interest free, if the TV dies you don't get warranty for the whole 5 years just cause you are paying for it still.

        Vodafone were asked about this when they launched 36m payment options and they still only offer 24m warranty.

        Phone contract: 0 months
        Interest Free Finance for device… payable in 36 monthly instalments.

        The phone is not "contracted" its "financed"

          You need to learn to stand up for yourself better. Consumer affairs will side with you. Products need to last a reasonable time. I've read of stories of 7 plus year old TV's being fixed.

            @scuderiarmani: Yeah i was using it as a comparisons.
            i worked for a major TV repairer in vic and yeah usually they will fix them if its reasonable. Sony are the best for it actually.

            When Samsung was taken to court over their washing machine recalls etc
            Among many questions they were asked The ACCC was asked what they considered a reasonable time for a high end mobile device, they responded 2 years, that's why Samsung give 2 years warranty, (they literally changed their warranty after these court cases happened) it is cause they know after 2 years the ACL wont harm them.
            2 years is the given accepted life span of a high end mobile phone.

            So if you finance something (a mobile phone) with a warranty of 24 months (an accepted lifespan by the governing body) for 36 months and it breaks in month 29… its tough luck sadly.

              @jimbobaus: I can confirm that Sony by far are the best for this. When I was salesperson at TGG I had this OLD Sony tv which probably about 10 grand back in the day. Replaced and was out of warranty by 10 -13 YEARS!!!. It was already repair once with warranty but still had issues and died again. They replace at full value. Didn't cost the store nothing. Win for the customer win for the store. 10k store credit lol. New TV and new hifi too. All Sony products. I'm not sure what Sony products are like now. From memory their return rate was low too.

                @hotstuff: TGG used to send their Sony Warranty TVs to my work in Moorabbin :P
                Sony would almost always replace with new even if old.. or offer customer super sized discount on a newer model

      What does a repayment option have to do with warrentee?

    •  

      send it in for warranty repairs on month 23 and you'll be right. I did that before i passed my Galaxy S8 to my mum. they replaced the screen (screen burn), new housing and new battery all under warranty so she got essentially a new phone.

      Yea but you still need to buy the phone to get the phone and the headphones.

    • -3 votes

      They also sell TVs and CDs.

    •  

      So would that be $65p/m for phone connection (coming to Telstra from Optus) + $1,500 for the S20 Ultra ($2,000 down to $1,500 with bonus in-store credit) + free wireless headphones?

      • +1 vote

        Yup. If the plan suits your needs then this will be a better deal than Samsung EPP assuming you can sell the Buds for $200+

        •  

          Not to mentioned not being able to get the phone via EPP. I'm not eligible

          •  

            @Oldmate88: It is possible to save $400 off via subscribing to the $65 a 12 month contract. Its a solid discount if you are already looking for the plan.

            However it would be cheaper overall to use the 50% EPP code if you have access to it. As timgus mentions not everyone has access to it, but might be worth keeping a look out for when people start selling their 50% off codes as it would be significantly cheaper overall even factoring in the cost of the code.

      •  

        Shit. Sorry I didn't really read the email too well. Didn't see you had to purchase the phone outright!

      •  

        How is it $500 credit? Isn't it $400? If it's $500 and then you can sell the earbuds for $200 then this is an amazing deal.

        •  

          The credit seems to fluctuate between $400-$500 and the $200 from reselling the earbuds would make for a good discount.

          I can't help but think that finding a 50% off EPP code could still be easier and cheaper for the phone outright though.

    •  

      Anyone know if it is possible for me to port out of my current Telstra service to let's say Optus, and then bring it into JB hifi and port back to Telstra to get this deal?

      •  

        Assuming that you have no contract with your current Telstra service, you can just talk to them to move you onto this plan and keep your number.
        If you are interested in the JB plan, you will need to port out of your Telstra service.

        •  

          Thanks.

          The reason I ask is because I want to take advantage of the JB offer and get the gift card. So I plan to move my month to month Telstra service to Optus prepaid and port back into Telstra for the JB plan. Just wondering if there are any restrictions to this

    Still waiting for the 256GB Ultra price to be announced on JB.

    $3500 for a phone plan

    Two and a half years from now you’re still paying $100 a month and only getting 15GB of data.
    Anybody who thinks this is good value or a bargain is deluded.

    • -2 votes

      There's a 24month option. But there are people that can only afford 100 a month so its an option for them.

    •  

      I agree

      Maybe people can just get the discounted phone outright with afterpay if they can't afford it normally.

    •  

      You're looking at it wrong.

      You're not on a $3500 phone plan - it's a 3 year interest free loan of $1650 plus $50/m phone plan. There are no lock in contracts and you can jump ship or upgrade the plan ($10 more a month takes you to 60gb) at any time.

      • +8 votes

        With this, you're spending a what equates to 2nd hand car $3500 to have this device. End of story.

        If the device is all you want, this is absolutely the wrong price to pay.
        Many would rightly argue the service is beaten on price elsewhere when decoupling phone / contract.

        It's a bad bad bad deal
        Buyer beware ? Buyer be craaazy

        •  

          Why are you so hung up on the $3500? Half of that is the outright RRP of the phone, the other half is the cost of a 36 month $50 phone plan. For many people Telstra is the only feasible option and if you can get $150 off your plan then that's worth posting IMO.

          •  

            @Hinee: Hung up on?
            The $3500 total is not going away is it.

            The RRP won't stay that way and even if we loved in a crazy land where a Samsung device held 100% resale value after 3 years , there's no excuse for doubling the total price in exchange for sub mediocre plan..

            •  

              @ndftz: My point is your complaint doesn't make sense. Do you have a problem with the price of the phone or the plan?

              edit to respond to your edit -
              Dude wtf are you on. You're not doubling the price of anything - you're lowering your monthly handset repayments to get it over 36 months and the greater total reflects having more months of service to pay for.

              • +2 votes

                @Hinee: The plan total, the bundling over 3 years and the idea that this sales tactic is geared towards financial irresponsibility.

                But yeah special mention goes to the plan price for service separate to the maliciously arranged device loan

    •  

      Couple things:
      - You are not stuck with a contract, you can change to any Telstra postpaid plan at any time.
      - You can jump to another telco but you need to pay off the rest of the device.
      So if you don't like the phone plan, what you can do is: pay Telstra for 1 month $50 (to get the $150 off) and pay out the device $1498.8. Basically you get $100 off RRP + Buds+ + 1 month Telstra service. Plus I think you get cashback + Telstra points etc. I've confirmed with Telstra chat, after you complete 1st month, you can port out off Telstra, they'll send a 2nd bill with the $150 credit and the rest of the device payment.
      I'm not a big fan of Telstra but their plans are great when you can claim the monthly bill from work. I get 10% off Corporate Discount for the plan and can claim up to $130 a month so this is great for me actually.

      •  
        1. Any Telstra postpaid. Where the cheapest plan is what exactly per month ? it isn't free, or trivial.
        2. There's the rub, they usually set the device price higher than the market. I doubt this price will reflect the best retail deal.

        you wont save unless you are gaming your expense reports.

        Telstra used to have good plans that you could game but they have since closed those loopholes.

          1. miq originally posted :

          Two and a half years from now you’re still paying $100 a month and only getting 15GB of data.

          I'm merely countering his point because no, you won't be stuck with the same 15GB plan for 3 years.

          2. What exactly is the market? The Samsung pre-order price for S20+ 5G 128GB is $1649, Telstra is setting it at $1648.8. The best retail deal is obviously gonna be lower, in fact you can get a lot more off right now from SS Edu or EPP stores (without the Buds though). But that's beside the point. All deals are deals.
          Like I said if you port out after a month, you will in fact get $100 off RRP + Buds+ + 1 month 15GB Telstra service + Telstra points. That's a very decent deal no matter how you look at it, especially if you value the Buds or can sell it off at a decent price.
          As for me personally, I'm not gaming anything, I can claim my mobile bill every month up to $130 so yes, I'll be taking the 36 months at $45.8 and 2 15GB plans at $45 for a total of $135.8 pm. I'm not sure about other sectors but in IT at least it's quite common to be able to claim $80+ monthly for mobile so this is the perfect deal for people like me.
          You seem to hate Telstra, I get it, but that's beside the point really. It's a good deal regardless if you port out after a month or not. In fact, it's the perfect deal for people that can claim mobile bill monthly like me. Optus has similar deal but I prefer Telstra 5G network for now.

    What kind of concussion would I need to agree to 3 years of payments on a consumer electronic device

  •  

    I'm already on a Telstra $80 month to month deal could I add the S20 24 month payment plan to My current plan.
    Or do I need to sign up to a new one

    •  

      Shane if you're on the current $80 plan on the site then you're on a month to month plan already, adding the device won't change any contractual terms however it will add a 24-month or 36-month device payment contract t your account

  •  

    Ass20 Ultra is the phone I am interested in.

  •  

    If you read the tesltra website your not getting the phone for the price as the s20 and a $150 credit. The price of the s20 5g is $41.63 Per months for 36 months. And the price of the s20+ 5g is $45.8 per month for 36 months. The $150 credit is to make the plans the same price at the end of the 24 or 36 months.

    Noted on the website:
    Get the GS20+ 5G for the price as the GS20 5G when you add to any month-to-month mobile plan.
    The price discount is provisioned via a once-off $150 credit applied by the second bill.

    • +1 vote

      So the price in the title is correct

    •  

      I chat with a rep, you get $150 credit on your 2nd bill, so you can port out immediately after 1 month, just pay the rest of the device. So basically pay $50 for the first month + $1500 for the s20+ 5g and that's all.

      •  

        What would be the point of that?

        • +1 vote

          Uh, you get $100 off the RRP of the S20+ 5G 128GB, 1 month Telstra 15GB service, the Buds+, Telstra points, and possibly cashback? I'm not saying it's the best deal out there but definitely a deal in my book.

      •  

        Why not just purchase it through Samsung Edu store and use boost or aldi mobile….?

        •  

          You don't get the Buds+ via Edu/EPP Store, the Buds+ can net you like $200 selling it, more if you actually use it.
          You definitely don't get Telstra points and possibly cashback via Edu/EPP stores.
          And you can port out of Telstra after 1 month to use any other telco. So to sum it up:
          - Telstra: $100 off RRP, Buds+, 1 month Telstra 15GB service, 50K Telstra points, possibly cashback
          - Samsung Edu/EPP: $300 off RRP, battery pack

  •  

    Wouldn't this be much cheaper?

    •  

      Woolworths mobile doesn't have 5G and does not look like they are planning to enable it…
      If you are living in an area not likely to get 5G in 2 years then its fine
      However if you live in metro area.. you will be stuck with 4G with a 5G phone for 2-3 years…
