Problem porting Boost number to Telstra post or pre-paid

Hi, has anyone else had issues porting from Boost to Telstra pre or post paid services? Neither Telstra staff  or the website are allowing the port to happen. The website is giving me the following..."To switch to Telstra Pre-Paid from Boost Mobile, please call 132200" support is non-existent after several attempts. Staff are telling me they can't see the existing service to make the port and I need to contact Boost.

Was this helpful?

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

Hi @lyris 


It should only need an order for the Pre-Paid/Post-Paid and a new SIM.


Sometimes the support people at Telstra and not up to the simplest of tasks.


I'd try them again, maybe the 24/7 Chat (I have found it better to do that from 9am to 5pm M-F). But you never know your luck :-)

Because of their agreements moving between Boost and Telstra requires a blank SIM card for the process as it is a little bit more manual. Unless it has changed again Telstra stores can also help if you have one conveniently located to you as an alternative to trying to call.
