    Will this work for recharge?

        You can speak to Boost support and they will activate the new SIM while keeping your current number, though this is not guaranteed. I did this in May without having to port out and port in.

        •  

          So did I, just last month. But, they warned me not to do so because we can lose our number in this process. However, it worked for me.

    •  

      same question, will this work for recharge?

    •  

      YMMV but chat or call & tell them you purchased thinking it was a recharge voucher, they should add it to your account.

      Worked for me cpl months ago, although they did stuff it up first time, had to contact them again to get it rectified, tried telling me it was a 6mth recharge, i told them it was for 12mths & they fixed it eventually..

      •  

        Will it extend the expiry date too? Say I have 6months left and 100G data. What will I have after adding this?

        •  

          mine was expiring in a few days when i did it, not sure how long they will activate for if you have 6 mths left, call & ask prior to purchasing i suppose.

          •  

            @Bunsen: So we should recharge only near the end of current plan? Not in the middle of it, right?

            •  

              @nuker: that's what i did but YMMV, depends when the sim you purchase expires i suppose.

  • +5 votes

    Yes ..I used it as recharge..just call customer service on 1800100933 tell them to add this to your existing account.. it took 10 mins and I had credit added to my existing boost sim.

    Dammit call centre closed

    •  

      I didcit via the live chat on the app. Super easy and friendly

      •  

        How do you access the live chat on the app?

        •  

          Can't remember exactly, it wasn't super easy. You need the new My Boost Mobile app, and i think you had to go to help, support and hidden in there was a live chat function. You need to have ad blocking disabled on your phone for it to work though.

    will wait for deal on Telstra $300 sim kit (just for esim option)

    •  

      I thought esim option was only on Telstra plans? not prepaid

        I have been using Sim on my Telstra prepaid (I recharge $5 every 45 days) since 1 year.

          You’re on PAYG plan?

          •  
            •  

              @hopper: So you never need data even when outside? I rarely make calls or send texts but need some data just in case.

              •  

                @hawkeye93: I use this on my lte watch
                Just to get missed calls and texts on my watch when I'm away from phone. It hardly uses any data.
                Also I can get notifications when away from phone.
                I give missed call to my wife in case of needs from watch if I leave my phone home.
                Mostly leftover credit rolls over.

                •  

                  @hopper: which plan are you using? also im assuming your watch uses a different number?

                  or is it the same number as the 300$ plan?

                  •  

                    @furythree: Payg. Watch uses different no. But will only be active once watch is disconnected from phone. Like said I only use it to get notifications from phone and make calls if needed

          But OOS now

I feel like this is one big scam!! Definitely will be requesting a refund and will recommend the same to you.

                              @knight321: Definitely dodgy. I didn't buy one as it was just a little too sus for me.
                              There was no feedback from buyers and the fake location address rang the alarm.
                              I have no idea how their scam will work but I know in situations like this a lot of victims find it too hard to push for their money back and just forget it. That means big $s for the scammer.

                                    @Emre: Yeah! But still a hustle. A seller like this shouldn't be on eBay. Sold more than 100 fake sims (& still continue selling). What if even few do not get refund or not able to get refund, is a lottery for such scam seller.

          I'm literally using this plan, and only have 4G.

          Although I will note that last year's plan I was on (exact same) - was 5G.

          So go figure

      But telstra also has free international calls

      Can I use the eBay plus $50 voucher on this?

      •  

        Should work. Only problem, In case of refund, they will only give you $$ minus voucher amount. So, you technically paying $50 for eBay plus in that scenario.

        • +1 vote

          hop onto live chat and they will give you a new one

          i actually realised my voucher worked again. because paypal refunded to it. so i double dipped lol

            @furythree: So was it a scam?

            •  

              @GDayStraya: no im talking about the ebay voucher i got

              i bought something that needed to be refunded

              i asked live chat to restore my voucher, they gave me a new one

              but i noticed in the paypal transaction that the refund credited the voucher. so i tested the old code and it still works lol

              mind you this was over a year ago before ebay separated themselves from paypal as a default payment. not sure if they modified their code

              either way ask live chat to give you a new code if you ever get a refund

    •  

      Sorry 9 months ? Did you mean data comparing to other plan ? Plus members it’s 123.49$.Thanks

      •  

        Sorry should have been more specific – the data is the main thing we're buying here and even if you can't make 100GB stretch for the full 12 months, its still good value if you make it last 9 months then move to another plan after that.

    •  

      Why would it last for 9 months? i thought it was a 12 month sim?

      • +1 vote

        It was mentioned that "Even if it just lasts 9 months"

        Why there is too much confusion ..? "Even if" refers to an imaginary situation … !!

          Wish english was my first language but it’s not so I asked to clear the confusion as I have ordered from the same seller last Friday. Thanks anyways for clearing it out for us.

            @Gavezy890: That's okay mate … Indeed English isn't my first language either…

            Have you got any confirmation reg that order? any tracking number whatsoever? Does it seem legit?
