> Will a Telstra $2 prepaid sim give me access to them? It *used* to for me (and others on here), but maybe they're closing that loophole?…

FWIW, only Telstra and MVNO's using Telstra offer WiFi calling when O/S. Optus, Vodafone and their MVNO's geo-block it.

I was at my local Coles (Chisholm, ACT) today and noticed that the Lebara $24.90 starter packs are on special for $6.

Mine arrived yesterday, along with the one purchased on Saturday with a lower cashback. Canberra.

Gruen took the pi** out of them a few weeks ago. You can probably find the episode on ABC iView. EDIT: S15, E8.

Ah, looks like the 35¢/month offer ended a couple of weeks ago. Sorry about that. $1/month still isn't too bad though.
24/08/2023 - 12:24
Cheapest option is probably Crazytel, at 35¢/month. More info can be found in the Telephony section of the Whirlpool forums.

Yes, you need to send an SMS from Vodafone and their MVNO's, but it'll let you do it without any credit in this instance.
