Here are 2 good options for using this starter pack. Before you activate make sure you get a referral code from a friend already with Belong or the OzBargain Belong pool for an additional $20 credit.
Option 1 (6 Months 7GB) - Start out on the $10 1GB per month plan. When the first payment date comes you'll already have 1GB data plus you get another 1GB (Double Data). The first 6 months cost is covered ($40 starter pack credit plus $20 referral credit).
Option 2 (3 Months 82GB) - Start out on the $40 40GB per month plan. When the first payment date comes you'll already have 40GB data plus you get another 40GB (Double Data). Then switch to the $10 1GB per month plan for the 2nd & remaining months. The first 3 months cost is covered ($40 starter pack credit plus $20 referral credit) and data rolls over every month or can be gifted.
Double Data (1st month)
DO NOT port/activate on these dates 4th, 12th, 20th, 28th. These are the start of new payment cycles. They are the same every month.
One month worth of data is credited on activation, and another on your first payment date, 1-8 days later. So you effectively get double data for the first monthly payment at no extra cost.
Porting hours of operation are: (taken from Whirlpool wiki)
- Mon to Fri: 8am – 8pm (AEDST/AEST)
- Saturdays: 10am – 6pm (AEDST/AEST)
- National Public Holidays: Closed (Ports are not processed on these days)
If you request to port your number outside operating hours, your service will remain active with your existing provider until the next porting day. That being said, there are Belong mobile customers who've experienced successful porting outside these days/hours mentioned above.
