Porting from Voda to Telstra/ buying a prepaid sim to use until porting complete.

Hi, 

I have just bought Iphone locked to Telstra, keeping my old ph number, Porting hasnt happened as yet.

My old ph was NOT locked to any network,  

With the public holiday this weekend, it may take longer for porting.

Can i go to woolies and purchase a PREPAID sim , place it into new phone so i can start making calls, and connect to FB etc?

Ive got this gorgeous phone but cant do much until porting happens.

when porting is finalised i was thinking i can swap sims again.

thanks for any help. 

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Hi HelenDove

 

Sorry for the delay in responding to your post. 

 

How did you get on when you were speaking with the Live Chat Team? Were they able to resolve your concerns regarding your port request? 

 

Kind Regards
