180

I was actually quite surprised that a phone released in October'2021 is on Special at Woolworths. Available in-store.

  • Resolution 720 x 1600 pixels, 20:9 ratio (~257 ppi density)
  • Dual SIM (Nano-SIM, dual stand-by)
  • ROM: 32 GB. No mention of RAM even on Telstra's site, but this handset comes in both 2GB and 3GB RAM variants.
  • 4G Bands 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 20 ,28, 38, 40, 41
  • Android 11 (Go edition)
  • Unisoc SC9863A (28nm) Octa-core (4x1.6 GHz Cortex-A55 & 4x1.2 GHz Cortex-A55)

    Damn, this battery with this CPU should last a week

  • Good burner phone. However must be limited stock. Doubt I can spot any at my locate Wollies.

    • Don't need to. Get it from officeworks click and collect

  • I bought the Telstra C20, though that has NFC and therefore android pay… neat little phone for testing android apps

    • You mean G20? and that has 4GB. I would not want to play with Android 11 with only 2GB.

      • That would be it, it seems to run just fine when opening apps

        android GO requirement is 1gb ram

        • have you tried that?

          • +1

            @manic: no but android GO is different from your full android

            have you tried that ?

            • +1

              @phunkydude: Yep. It just leaves out some apps and replaces them with web versions, ie inside Chrome.

              Go originally worked with 1GB, but a few updates of "google play services" added bloat and made it horrible.

  • Pretty sure telco prepaid phones are single-SIM only.

    Also, seems to be 2G RAM only

  • Is it easy to unlock?

    • Just a phone call. But I've been waiting for weeks for an unlock code for my old Telstra phones. I'll have to call them again.

      • Phone call and pay up if it's within the first 6 months ?

        • Yup. Depends on how long the phone has been in service / on a plan for. My old phones are ex-work phones. More than 3 years old. No charge for getting the unlock code… but still waiting.

          All you have to do is give them the IMEI number. They'll then tell you if there's a fee to unlock.

  • Same price at office works.

    can i use this without SIM just for my little nieces to play YouTube via WiFi?

    • +1

      I don't see any reason why not.

  • Silly question, will Boost sim work on this?

    • +1

      It most likely should work, given that Boost uses the Full Telstra Network, most of the time is has been reported to be working with Boost here and here too.

      • +1

        Just bought it and put in Boost Sim
        It's asking for a SIM Lock code
        "Network Locked"
        Do I have to unlock it?

        • Wow, that is the first time I read that for Boost!

          • +1

            @ozhunter68: I'll try it again after work tonight
            If it still doesn't work, where's the best place to get it unlocked?

            • @KSS: Appart from expensive Telstra direct (more expensive in first 6 months unless you have spent around $80-100 or more in re-charges), otherwise $25. You can look into Google and risk other ways (eBay ik/us maybe), but have not tried for some years. I stay away from prepaid phones these days as not worth extra time and money as well as software and hardware compatibility issues. There are many good deals these days on decent cheap unlocked phones below $200 even that are compatible with all networks and dual Sim.

    I still can't get my head around the fact that you can buy a phone from Woolworths, locked to Telstra, but it won't work on a plan also sold by Woolworths, that uses the Telstra network. Some one explain to me how that conversation goes at head office?

    • +2

      Haha, good one! But yeah, for all good reasons "Woolworths Mobile" and "Telstra Prepaid Mobile" are two different products. Hence, no one would have thought on those lines.

      Also, the sale of Telstra locked phones is probably to "boost" Telstra revenue, not Woolworths Mobile revenue :P
      Woolworths Mobile may be treated as an independent mobile service provider. The fact that it uses "Telstra Wholesale Network" may not be related to the sale of "Telstra locked phones" at Woolworths.

      But, hope the guys are listening ;-)

    Kmart had for $89 and it said 64gb variant on website, wonder if the GB was incorrect

    • When was this?

      • When the black friday sales started, it's no longer on the website though

        • and you didn't bother to post as a deal ?

          • +1

            @phunkydude: Didn't even have time to get one myself, wasn't quick enough

  • also micro usb which is lol for 2021

  • +2

    Auspost now $99 with free delivery

  • is it dual sim?

    • I've never seen a working network locked dual sim phone. Even if the 2 sim trays are there it won't work locked or unlocked.

  • (sorry if this is answered already and I've missed it) anyone confirm whether it's a USB C or micro USB charger port?

    Thanks 🙃

    • It's micro USB

  • Coles' turn this week, same deal, $99.

    Anyone know how high the V-notch is? Some apps don't use that area, reducing the effective display size and resolution.

    Can't find it online. Probably a standard size, but it looks a little smaller than a samsung a20's notch. From photos, this C30's camera is partly outside the notch (while the a20's is fully inside).
