Re: Buying sim for kids

Hi Craig5412,


If you're buying a SIM in a Telstra store the SIM will be put in your name because no-one can go into a Telstra store and buy a SIM and put it in someone else's name.

Therefore you'd have to show your ID.


I'm pretty sure that a person has to be a minimum of 18 year's old to be able to get a SIM in their name.



I am NOT a Telstra employee and never have been. However, I AM a customer who volunteer's my time in the hope to help someone with their question.
