How limited is limited and when does the next batch after this "limited" one come to Telstra?

I think that's a way of saying "don't blame us if you line up and don't get one". Or prepare for Samsung to claim they've "sold out in record time". 🙂

Hi Telstra,

 

If your official pricing is starting from $80 plan plus $7 monthly handset, you will need to do better to keep existing customers. Other telcos are offering much lower pricing starting $60 plan a month. Hopefully the article was incorrect. Only time will tell.

Re: Samsung GALAXY S4 Launch – Available in Store

This was just sent from Samsung Australia to advise of the S4 release.

 

Why is Telstra so much more expensive and restrictive. Surely the competition out there in the marketplace would make Telstra try and match or even come close to the other providers. This is a huge difference. 😞

 

 

 

OPTUS

67 per month

$60 Optus Plan + $7 monthly handset payment (after $20 monthly handset credit)

Total minimum cost over 24 months is $1,608

 

TELSTRA

$87 per month

$80 Everyday Connect Plan + $7 monthly handset payment (after using MRO bonus)

Total minimum is $2,088

 

VODAPHONE

$65 per month

$5 per month on our $60 plan.

Total minimum cost over 24months $1,560

 

VIRGIN

From $61 per month

BIG PLAN $59 + $7 handset repayments (for new Virgin Mobile customers)

Big Plan $59 + $2 handset repayments (Mates Rates for exisiting Virgin Mobile Customers)

Total minimum cost over 24 months $1,584 ( new customer) / $1,464 ( Mates Rates)

Re: Samsung GALAXY S4 Launch – Available in Store

Keen to get this phone but to only allow the $80 plan? No, that's ridiculous. I can wait till the $60 plan is available to get the phone. Better yet, it's only 2 weeks till my plan with Telstra ends, I'll just go with the other providers on Saturday and pay the $$ to finish with Telstra. Better than than pay $20 extra a month over the next two years....

Don't believe everything you read in the news! Pricing has been officially released and it is available on the $60 for an extra $13, $80 plan for extra $6. No doubt the $80 plan is what it would most likely just be advertised with.

Re: Samsung GALAXY S4 Launch – Available in Store

I went into the Fountain Gate store (apparently ranging the GALAXY S4 from April 27) today to be told that they and some of the other stores mentioned above (in Vic) would not be receiving any units until next weekend.

 

They said they won't even be having a demo handset for the official launch day!

 

Can you confirm whether this is true?

Re: Samsung GALAXY S4 Launch – Available in Store

I also went to Fountain Gate store today on level 2.

 

Was told they are NOT getting the phones until the following weekend regardless of this article saying they are getting it on the 27th. 

 

I can wait another week, no worries, but dont tell us they will have it on that date if they won't.

 

As for pricing, I once left Telstra because I saw a previous handset $20 a month cheaper with Vodafone with a heap of extras too. Would have given it all back and back paid the $20 a month if I could have had the coverage that I had previously had with Telstra.

Hard to say when the next batch will arrive. We manage stock with Samsung on a weekly basis.
