        Is there an deal in the works on the 85GB 12 month plan?

  •  

    Want to order a couple of them but worried about how long it will take to get here in Victoria

    •  

      Took about 3 days sending through Toll. Super quick considering the COVID situation with slower postage.

      Hello.

      We are sending out MOST orders that fall in metro areas via Toll Priority overnight service and should reach Victoria in 48 to 72 hrs after pick up.

      Regional areas where Toll doesn't deliver we send via Australia post

      •  

        That's awesome service thank you

        •  

          Thank you for your kind words of appreciation.

    How do people renew these plans? Any deals or plans or hacks or is it full priced after the first year?

    •  

      Port out then back in again?

    •  

      I just grab 2 hopefully postage doesn't take too long.

      The only hack I can think of is your need to port out with a cheap $2 SIM from another carrier and then port back in with one of these deals. Just relies on taking a month to do so maybe

        Risky Business if you lose your number in frequent porting.

        • +1 vote

          I don't like the the idea of frequent porting either. I've been stuck without service at a very bad time (family member became hospitalised) for 48 hours doing just this. When something happens like that, any saving seems pathetic compared to the inconvenience or situation faced.

          It'd be good if there were regular recharge deals to reward loyalty, but I guess many service providers use similar tactics these days.

          •  

            @buffalo bill: You could simply just recharge for the cost

            The starter kits are always discounted, that is the reward. There's no loyalty scheme these days, people always expect it

            •  

              @yellowfever: There are Boost recharge deals at retailers (ie https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/552749), but they are nowhere near as frequent as the starter kits are.

              I'm sure most people who sign on base the service value proposition on the price they pay at that time. However, Boost have possibly done their sums to find most people simply recharge at the going rate rather than leave.

        •  

          How would one lose their number from porting?

          •  

            @MisterTee: Yep it happens. It's unfortunately not like a banking transaction. One provider says we didn't get the number from the other, the other says sorry it's not with us and both say since you're not our customer don't call us.

  •  

    Hi, my current plan will finish in early of Oct. Can anyone tell me whether I can buy the Sim now but activate until that time?

    Thank you guys.

    •  

      I bought mine from the last deal a few days ago. That one has an expiry date of early November this year.

  •  

    $1.5 cheaper, that's insane! Good job TA . Don't think they can go any cheaper than that

  • +2 votes

    I don't understand why every time people have to ask expiry date and recharge date, why the seller has not mentioned in their description? Very frustrating.

  •  

    Can the seller tell us what is the expiry date?

    Wish Telstra 150gb Pre paid offer comes up this month.

      Likewise. Mine's due end of Nov.

      What are you smoking? VoLTE is what makes it great. Call quality is brilliant. If you don’t like it, switch it off.

      •  

        Me thinks he got a bad batch man 🤣

      •  

        Without VoLTE, your voice call will revert to 3G connection, disconnecting your ongoing data session. With the VoLTE, everything remains connected while you receive/make a call on 4G (VoLTE).

      •  

        Phone calls work fine when walking, but they break up when in a car. It only started happening when boost moved to voice over lte.

  • +3 votes

    What are my options? I'm a boost customer, my prepaid expires early Nov. I'm thinking to get woolworths prepaid as boos prepaid a aren't getting lower. Ideally I'd want 300gb boost plan.

    What's the best option to port our for a week or so before porting in as a new customer to boost? Cheapest prepaid our there?

    •  

      Wondering the same

    •  

      Same here. I think we need to be with another provider for atleast a month before porting back.

  •  

    Does it work when renewing or is it for new customers only?

    •  

      New customers only. I am in the same boat. Will have port away to another provider and then port back in to Boost

  •  

    any similar package from another provider? currently with Telstra and thinking of jump to a different provider and wait for a jbhifi Telstra deal to jump back to Telstra. I know boost is not considered as a non Telstra service for these jbhifi phone deals.

    •  

      Aldi mobile or Woolworths but they don't have full Telstra like Boost

  •  

    Don't they sell $150 plan anymore?

  •  

    Unlimited IDD ends on 13 October though.

    •  

      I think international roaming is ending and not international dialing?

      •  

        Just reread the sms Boost sent me. It does mention international roaming. Oops.

        Thanks for the correction!

    @tightarse can you confirm how long we have from purchase until we have to activate? I can't find any info on it

        I received mine from last deal in 48 hours in Melbourne via Toll

  •  

    From 13 October 2020, international roaming will no longer be available

    •  

      A new version of international roaming will launch in mid-2021.

  •  

    How long do you need to be away/port out, before you can port back in?

  •  

    Recent message I received from Boost in regards to International Roaming


    we're always working to give our customers simple and great value products. We are making some changes behind the scenes, which means from 13 October, international roaming will no longer be available. But don't worry, it will be back in the future.

  •

  •  

    So could i buy this today and recharge in december and it wont expire

  •  

    Hi I ordered on Friday but haven’t received anything in the post yet. Haven’t got a confirmation email from Cellmate either apart from a Paypal receipt. How do I check if my order is on its way? I’m in Perth. Cheers

    •  

      Hello.

      Please pm us the name under which your order was placed.

      More than 95% of orders were shipped by Toll Priority overnight service and all customers were sent notification from Toll on the email address provided by customers. Please check your junk or spam folder for an email from Toll with the tracking details.
      Few orders were left as we ran out of Toll satchels but they too were dispatched by Tuesday.

      We are fulfilling most orders via Toll overnight service unless the postcode falls in an area where Toll priority does not provide overnight service.

    Hi, We can activate this sim/ package by what date since I am already on a plan and it will expire in 2 months? Can I get this sim now and activate it in November 2020? Thanks

    •  

      they usually have a 1 year expiry,so shouldnt be an issue

  •  

    From memory direct Telstra customers can activate this starter pack but customer support have to send out a blank SIM first?

    •  

      not any more, they changed it was too difficult during covid,

      •  

        By “not anymore” do you mean that Telstra porting doesn’t require a blank SIM now? Or that Boost don’t send out a blank SIM anymore?

        •  

          looking for Wics's reply as well.

          • +2 votes

            @kazimpk: both, basically they swap your telstra sim to prepaid, then switch you directly over to the boost sim you get in the pack.
            (No blank sim required, so no blank sim sent out.)

            source: we just ported over with the $150 plan.

            note that you do have to call them though, cant do it automatically online.

    My wife is with boost, and this morning it looks like visual voicemail/messagebank plus has been activated on her phone. Is this new/available to all boost customers? Thinking of getting on the deal (porting from telstra), but want to know if this is available first!

  •  

    Good deal, thank you!

  •  

    Got x2 of these , 1 ported from Optus and 1 ported from Telstra. Just one thing to be aware of when porting from Telstra - you cant port a Telstra business number across, not sure if this is mentioned anywhere. You will need to transfer the business number to a personal before the number can be ported to Boost.

    My Optus is a business number and that was fine - just the Telstra business has an issue, this just required to go in store to change it which was done and then successfully ported to Boost. Optus took about 5mins to port number , Telstra took approx1 hour. So all good

  •  

    Thanks OP got 1 today.

  •  

    Thanks OP so much for the post.
    Got one, day before yesterday and it arrived by Toll Priority (Toll didn't inform me though) and ported from Vodafone within minutes without any hassles whatsoever, today.

    The guy at Cellmate (Shabbir) was extra helpful from the very beginning. Posted the SIM through Toll Priority instead of AUSpost for it to deliver urgently. Even told me the whereabouts of my SIM when I rang Cellmate up asking for the same. A little disappointed with Toll about not providing with a Tracking Number.

    All in all it was a nice and swift deal and would highly recommend Cellmate @Maddington!!
