Data only sim card

Hello, I just bought a prepaid Telstra Data only sim, 12m 180GB. It says the expiry date is 2021/12/03. Is this the date when I have to first activate it by?   Also, is the date the third of December or the twelth if March?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you

Re: Data only sim card

Hi carig,


The date on the packaging would be when you have to activate the SIM by.


I would read the date as 3rd December 2021. Don't know why it would be printed like that. It's sold in Australia for an Australian company, so it should be printed how Australian's write the date.

I am NOT a Telstra employee and never have been. However, I AM a customer who volunteer's my time in the hope to help someone with their question.
