Got a Realme c3 phone which is optus branded and was sold by bigw on a deal few months back, having read up about it I believe the phone is tweaked to not use Telstra is this correct?
I mean you can’t use a Telstra sim in it even if unlocked.
Actually I use boost which is Telstra but same thing, I read as it’s a optus branded phone they stopped you from using the Telstra on it is this true?
As I’m using my current phone with boost I was thinking of taking out another sim deal for a year for the Realme c3 phone.
But does it work only on optus branded sims etc or the likes coles optus for example?
So I will have two working phones with more or less one years paid up on both to use.
Or is there some very cheap sim deal I could use on the Realme c3?
I’m saying that the coles optus one on a deal would work out at $10 a month not sure would get better than that.
After a year of so using the coles optus deal I could then get I think a free unlock or maybe this is only optus branded or would I qualify still under the coles optus one?
I could then try boost sim in then see how it goes.
If it’s any optus what’s the go on optus vs coles optus I take this is similar to boost vs Telstra?
I find my boost which uses Telstra great which im assuming same goes for coles optus vs optus.
I see coles optus has a deal on not sure if this is an online only thing or in store also but is $150 for $119 for a year.
Im taking this is as good if not the same as if using optus only? And I’m not sure if this phone was optus brand sim only or others like coles etc are still ok.
If you know of deal or better deals im all ears.
