I would like to change from Pre-Paid Extra to Pre-Paid Max. By doing so, will I loose the 30 GB of data I currently have in my data bank?

Re: Change Pre-Paid Plan

Hi SICE,

I have been looking into this and have had confirmation today from a Crowdsupport Community Manager that if you change your offer to the Max offer you won't lose your Data Bank that you've got accumulated on the Pre-Paid Extra offer. It will rollover to the new Max offer.

Re: Change Pre-Paid Plan

Hi SICE,

It does state that if you change from Pre-Paid Extra to another offer you'll lose your Data Bank....BUT I have seen somewhere (I can't find it now) that if you change to the Pre-Paid Max offer you won't lose your Data Bank.

I'd suggest contacting Telstra Pre-Paid on 132200 or via Live Chat to see what they say.

I'll keep looking to see if I can find it again.

Re: Change Pre-Paid Plan

Yeah, that is a much better plan than the Extra, so well worth changing over.

 

I read the Critical Information Summary  pdf but can't see if it excludes 1300 and 1800 numbers?

 

All it says is....

 

What’s not included

Unless stated otherwise in the plan, your inclusions can’t be used for talk/text to satellite numbers, premium numbers (eg 19xx numbers), operator assisted calls (e.g. most 12xx numbers), diverted calls and overseas use. Content charges such as Google Play™ purchases and subscriptions using premium SMS are not supported. Any further restrictions are listed under each plan.
