Gb not matching up when i activated my telstra $10 sim card

Answered

Hi, recently i purchased a Telstra $10 sim card with a 1gb + 5gb bonus(and yes,the offer is still current ) to use in my Telstra usb dongle while im on holidays. When i went through the activation process it said i have 3gb to use ,not the 6 gb which wouldve been great but at least even with 3gb i can still check out Ebay / Gumtree etc. A bit later i received an email saying that my activation has gone through. So i put the sim card into my telstra dongle and when it fired up it said that i only had 1gb to use, whats happened to the other 2gb (or 5gb) ?

Re: Gb not matching up when i activated my telstra $10 sim card

The only way to get the bonus 5GB is to activate the SIM on the PrePaid Extra Plan (which is for mobiles).

 

If you activated as a Tablet and put it on a Mobile Broadband Plan, then the bonus 5GB does not apply.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Set it & forget it

With direct debit there’s no need to give paying your bill another thought.

Avoid queuing up and never worry about late fees again.
