Contracting with Telstra in an Apple Store

Answered

If I buy an iPhone 6+ from an Apple store, can I recontract then and there with the same contracts and deals you get in an Telstra Shop? e.g. can I get a 6+ on a M or L accelerate plan and stll get the bonus data allowance?

 

I would like to know because it looks like the only way I'm going to get my hands on one is through an Apple store which is 2 hours drive away and I don't want to reserve one, then hike all the way up there only to be dissapointed some more.

 

I've only ever done this through a Telstra Shop so not sure if it's all the same deal or not.

Yes, Apple Stores act like any dealer, they have access to the same standard products and as the Upgrade offer is part of the product at the moment their should be no issue them adding it.

Yes, I did that very thing tonight. Signed up on the M plan and received my handset on the spot. Same plan I'd chosen on pre-order with Telstra

I still find it kinda funny that no one can get their hands on any handsets... but the apple stores seam to have a never ending supply... I guess it is good for them that they are dealers for all three major carriers... xD

Not true. Just check this at midnight when it updates and reserve one.

Good luck Smiley Happy

 

If the model you're after isn't there tonight, either check another store (if they're close enough) or wait and check the following day.

Yup, after finding out from an Apple Store on Saturday, I recommended a friend do that... and she got a Silver 64 6+ the next day...

Jazzman's link above is the way to go. Stock availability changes throughout the day and you need to be quick logging in with your Apple ID if something comes up.

I picked up a 6+ 64g in Space Grey from the Sydney store today. Now, just waiting for my sim to activate.

Re: Contracting with Telstra in an Apple Store

To bring back an old thread, can you still contract at an Apple store ? If so, do you get the addons like bonus data, Foxtel Now ?
