Mobile plan cancelling

I am just trying to find out if I was to cancel my mobile plan would it lock the phone or just stop the SIM card from working..

Was this helpful?

It just stops the SIM from working.


If however, your handset was bought as a PrePaid and you wanted to use it with another carrier, you would need to get Telstra to unlock it (max fee $80, free if phone older than 2 years).

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.
