My iphone wont work

I have been on my $67 plan with my iphone 4s and my plan runs out in approx 6months...
My iphone keeps freezing and wont let me recieve txts or calls or open facebook. the screen keeps freezing and the lock button hasn't worked for quite some time.
at time of purchase i was unaware of the apparent mobile insurance i could have so did not purchase insurance.
is it possible for me to swap my plan for a new phone early?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you

Re: My iphone wont work

as always dont forget to backup your phone first before doing anything...


as for updating your phone/plan i dont know as i dont work for Telstra. Sorry...

Note: I am in no way affiliated with Telstra, i simply work in the IT industry and my posts are from experiences.
If you don't want my help simply disregard my post.

Re: My iphone wont work

Hi bambi,

You can upgrade anytime you like but you will have to pay the remaining cost of your handset, and a $50 recontracting fee (this is instead of having to pay the normal break of contract fee).

Have a chat with us here: and we'll be happy to look into the specifics with you.
