Change of mobile plan

Answered

I do not wish to move to the new plan. Is my Telstra Flip 2 network locked or can I transfer to a more affordable plan?

Very good point @Jupiter I didn't think of checking its frequencies.

 

@MHBrown Try a Boost/Aldi/Belong/Vodafone SIM instead (To name a few). And as @Jupiter mentioned, make sure it works for your new provider. 

 

BTW: I just recalled a pensioner friend of mine purchased one of these phones awhile ago and it was locked to Telstra. But luckily Mobilecity included the unlock code when it was purchased (He then went to Belong).

Hi @MHBrown 

 

If it was purchased from Telstra then I would guess it is locked to them. 

 

An easy way to tell is to buy a $2 SIM for Optus or Vodafone and see what happens when you boot it up with one of them in it.

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