Re: Pre paid phone

I don’t think there are any modern phones that take a standard SIM. Your husband could buy any phone, then go to Telstra store and get a blank SIM that fits programmed with the old SIM’s phone number and account. The phone can be purchased at Telstra store, they have  a wide selection of prepaid phone suitable for the Telstra Network. To future proof the phone get one that supports 4G and VOLTE. The phone come with a preinstalled SIM with $10 of credit, that can’t be reprogrammed but you can insert a blank SIM and throw away the pre installed SIM.
