Contract ended

My mobile contract has ended and I would like to start a new contract and upgrade to the Samsung S9+. On my last contract I have loyalty discounts from a case manager because of ongoing mistakes made my Telstra. When I went to start a new contract I was told I wouldn't get these discounts on my new contract this would increase my current monthly bill of $86 for my ($70 plan, device charges and stay connected) to $124 without stay connected. I see this unreasonable and would really like some feedback about this issue??

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: Contract ended

Typically, discounts that you had are not carried across when you recontract. You get charged what the cost of the plan plus device is (the S9+ being a premium phone, so costs more on top of the base plan cost).
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Re: Contract ended

Hi @Meg90 Regrettably when recontracting we're unable to guarantee that the same plan or same bill total will be available. Pricing is determined by your plan and hardware selection, when choosing a premium handset on a high inclusion plan the bill total may be higher than your current selection. You're welcome to review the available options here: at any time.
