    can I use this to recharge my existing pre paid telstra number?

    •  

      Ofcourse not.

    I purchased all mine in 1 hit, and wasnt told I couldnt - I am going to register a new service each month and hopefully get 1 GB Credit - other than that you can register a service and user credit me2you service to pass across about $29 of the $30 credit, but depending on how you do this, you may be limited to 15 day expiration on that credit (as opposed to 30 days if you just registered it as a new service) - for a phone this isnt ideal, but for Broadband internet, i dont care what the mobile number is.

      they were so bad, the text & data plan is GONE.

      if you do not need to keep same number / SIM , just register it montly with the prepaid encore cap plan , which has 400Mb + $250 (which = 125Mb)
      , use close to the last cent, but not over, and use the rest of true credit to buy data pack 200Mb & 700Mb .

      total should be 1.3+Gb and can be use over 1 month cos you did not buy the data pack straight on the day you register.

      •  

        i tried that last time but i couldn't use the data pack after, because the main credit had expired after 30 days!

        so called and they put $1 on so i can use it. i was thinking of get my telstra friend to credit2me next time before expiry so it doesn't happen again.

        •  

          register 1 of the $10 card with long life, then you can have $30 credit to Me2u around for 6 months.

  •  

    Can you stack the credit 6x $30 on a single account- and go for a year expiry @ 10/12gb ?

  •  

    Wbeer no you cant - i already asked that question of Telstra. When you transfer the credit i believe you get the data rate of the service you were on previsouly, so ifyou did a $180 recharge to get the low data rate - your credits will then be at that same low rate - but if you are like me, you will register 1 in a modem, and then just reregister each month, so you pay top $$ for data, but in my eyes $10 for 1 gb is the same as Optus/Amaysim, so the value is there.

    •  

      So this means you can't stack 2 x $30 and get 3Gb for $49 in total. I don't care about the expiry date. I only need it for a week.

  •  

    Great. Thanks OP we need something like this for our iPads.

    Forgive my ignorance:

    a) Can you register in the same name each month?

    b) I presume I can use these in my 3g iPad instead of the $39 a month deals (which allow more data).

    c) Is this about the best sort of deal you can expect to run an iPad?

    Thanks.

      I will give you my thoughts on your questions (but i may not be 100% - but have done lots of research).

      A - I am unsure - i think you can as long as you dont have i think 5 or 7 active services at the same time.

      B - Yes you can use this in your ipad, but this is a full size Sim - so you need a sim cutter to make it fit into your iPad - If you register this it gives you 3Gb of data for your iPad but i have been told you need to call Telstra and ask for the Ipad registration as if you do it all on the internet, it wont give you the Ipad pricing

      C - Cant comment on this - I know you can get deals through Virgin and Optus at better pricing (based on the face value of $30) - the fact you are paying $10 for this puts Telstras pricing in line with the other crowds but in my eyes, a much better service.

      I hope that helps.

      Here is the link for the 7-Eleven deal which has lots of postings about what you can do with this service

    My microSIM post got deleted, I just want to let you know that MICROSIM one is $10 as well at HN , online only.
    it should not be a duplicate! COLES/WOOLWORTH/7-11 has not done $10 for $30 microSIM starter in the last 7 months.

    • Thanks. Have updated title to mention microsim.

      •  

        They have just update the website.
        Limit 1 per customer. While stocks last!
        :(

  •  

    The $30 telstra prepaid only gives you 700MB data not 1GB!

      zhenwen, use "cap encore cap" = 400 + 200 + 700 + $250 = more than 1.3Gb
      read my other comment.

    I just transferred my telstra number from plan to long life prepaid. But i havent put any credit in it yet. Was told I need to charge it at least $30 to activate the long life plan.

    1) What is the best way to put $30 credit in my old number that with these sims?

    If I activate one ($30) and transfer to my old number i believe telstra takes a fee from transfers and limit is $10 per transfer? Am I right? This means i need to activate at least two sims and transfer 2x$30 to trigger my long life?

    2) if I dont put any credit in my old number when will It expire? I.e stop receiving calls &sms?

      When I asked Telstra about recharges to do with long life, I was told the relevant recharge HAS to be done in one hit - ie, to qualify for 12 months, it had to be one $60 recharge - it could not be different amounts totalling $60

  •  

    limited 2 per custom in store West perth, wa. damn it. Need a bundle of friend to buy it for me.

  •  

    dont forget telstra is not as good value as they used to be they are about to start charging in one minute blocks!!! i cant believe telco's are allowed to do that…

  •  

    Didn't restrict to one when I collected in o'connor. :)

  •  

    Great I am off to HN now

  •  

    I've order 4 micro sims across 3 stores. Wonder if I should get more…

  •  

    I picked up my online order today from HN. No issue about getting multiples.

    Bought 10 from HN today. The trick is to buy on a Saturday when the Saturday staff are operating the checkouts. He couldnt figure out why the system wouldnt accept a quantity of 10, so rang one through 10 times.
