Boost. Recharge $150 80GB Plan

I'm seeing different information from different people.

Is it possible to renew on the same $150 plan or is the $200 plan the cheapest now?

    Why don't you type in your mobile number to the Boost Recharge page, choose you don't have a voucher, and see what shows up?

    That's what I did and the $150 plan was still available for recharge last month.

    •  

      That's exactly what I've been doing online and through the app and it doesn't show up.

  •  

    If you are on existing $150 plan before, you can still reload the $150.

  •  

    Is it possible to renew on the same $150 plan

    Yes…

    •  

      Trying to understand why I don't see the same.
      This is what I see.

      •  

        Are you currently on the 80Gb for $150 plan? It's only available to those users who were already on it when they grandfathered the old plans.
        Once you switch to a newer plan, you lose access to the old plans.

        •  

          Yes.
          I bought the $150 plan a year ago from Deals Plaza and I never changed plan.

          I might contact their support people.

    Why would you want this plan?

    On Belong you can get 80GB for $45/month. There is unlimited data banking so you can then swap to $10/month = $155 for the year and 91GB. Plus:

    • you get to keep them if you didn't use them in the year
    • you can top up cheaply if you didn't get enough data (buy from classifieds and have it gifted to you or get half price packs and gift it + referral codes)
    • you'll still be able to use the net even if you run out, it will just be very slow

    And that price above is only if you're really lazy - you could get some half price packs and use referral codes to pay a lot less.

      Except on Boost you can use Telstra locked phone, but not on Belong, even though it uses Telstra Network.

      •  

        Ah that's a good reason

    •  

      Does Belong have international call and text too?

        Can add for $5/month (so not have them when you don't need them)

      Belong only uses some of the Telstra 4G network, Boost uses all of it, so in some regional areas, you will get better coverage with Boost.

      I believe boost has the exact same benefits as Telstra. Also google home calling, volte,vowifi, unlimited Apple Music streaming
      Also belong $10 and $15 have totally gone now. Unless you have an old plan you can’t get the $10 anymore.

    •  

      As above.
      VoWiFi and VoLTE are important to me.
      Belong uses the Telstra "B" network and Boost gets Telstra "A".

  •  

    I'm in the same boat and didn't realise I could stay on the $150 plan so I ended up buying a Woolworths Mobile sim with a plan to go on their $150 plan. I can't decide now which one to go for.

    •  

      aside from the Woolies 10pc discount for groceries, the Boost 'extras' at $150 may be better if you use the international calls and need the better full Tesltra network access … that full network coverage does seem better than equivalent Aldi (which is same limited Telstra network as Woolies or Belong), especially when on road trips outside of cities in NSW

    I successfully recharged a family members one yesterday on the $150 plan, so I can confirm it's doable.

    •  

      How did you do it? Online or through the app? I'm not seeing the option for $150.
      This is what I see

      •  

        Do you see the same plans when you enter your phone number directly on the website?

        •  

          Yes.
          I see the same offering on the website as what I see on the phone app.

      •  

        How did you do it?

        It was done through the app I think. The old app.

        Don't worry, Boost completely and totally stuffed up my account (even lost my number for a while) and I don't have the $150 option either, even though I'm supposed to be on the old offer.

  •  

    It worked for me too, I recharged the $150 plan today.

  •  

    I think I see what's happened here.
    I originally signed up to "Boost Anytime Plus" and I received an email from Boost stating this. But on the app it's now showing me as being on "Boost Anytime Ultra". I definitely did not change my plan.

    Unfortunately the support people on the chat app are significantly worse than useless. After 6 hours and four different people asking exactly the same questions and asking me to do exactly the same thing I gave up.

    Is it possible to change back to my old plan?

        Don't think I'll stick with Boost once my 12 months are up.

        It's gone from $150 with 80GB of data to $200 with 30GB of data. No thanks.

        Included international destinations have been played around with also.

      Has your existing $150 plan already expired? If yes, then you are automatically moved to Boost Anytime "Ultra". To stay on Boost Anytime "Plus" you would have needed to recharge by the last day of your current plan expiry.

      If your current $150 plan has still not expired, you may contact support and ask for an explanation why have you been moved from "Plus" to "Ultra".

      Technically, anyone on a $150 plan cannot be on "Ultra" as it's only a "Plus" plan. I'm guessing your current plan has already expired.

        My plan has not expired yet but Boost have already announced that they are progressively moving everyone to the new plans. There is no choice and no way for me to renew the old plan that I originally bought.
