Hi _VK

 

That's a great question. We have not been advised if/when the new Lumia phone range is coming to Telstra at this stage. 

 

If you can submit your details http://tel.st/stayinformed we'll be able to update you with more information, as soon as we have it.

Correct, & also on that page it should be Windows 10 Mobile (AKA W10M), not Windows Phone.

The latter is an older (very different) platform. All of Telstra's doco should be amended in this way.

Lumia 950XL, I have been with Telstra for a while now, very happy with quality but will leave and go to another carrier to get this phone!

Would prefer to stay at Telstra so lets hope you get it.

Oh and with that link to register your interest, I have done this with the last three windows phones but I did not receive a notification for any of them. Nearly missed pre order of 1020!

Same here. Last time I got a new phone I switched from Vodafone because they didn't have the Lumia 930 in Orange. And I was with them happily for 20 years!

I am lucky enough to be in an area that has great coverage from all providers so I am not prepared to stick with a company that doesn’t offer the phone I want.

Ok so I officially find Telstra Marketing to be very poor.

 

Generate some hype 

 

1. Tell people that you aim to get a Windows Phone.

 

2. Give people an idea (at least) of a date, as I am sure you have one. (surely by now)

 

3. What's the big secret? You are better of advertising it to help with Sales.

 

4. Who runs your marketing department? Thare aren't doing a good job!

 

5. Your 'register your interest' site doesn't even give you a confirmation email.

    I did it last time for the Nokia 930 and got no emails.

 

C'mon Telstra, we love your work, but seriously... Lift your Game!

That's extremely unlikely for a multitude of reasons we now know about (follow the main thread at whirlpool).

They MAY have demo units from that date*, but I wouldn't expect any for sale till the 1st wk of Dec. at the soonest.

 

Still, happy to be wrong & find that the MS Store is selling them in limited quantities from 12/11/15.

It will likely be a PITA to get it though, as they'll prolly do what they're doing with the Band 2 & Surface Book.

Make it available only via the physical store, or physical store & online store, but nowhere else.

Nope, same status (which is there is none)...

But those in the know have already confirmed that T$ has been testing these devices.

 

If they do decide to proceed...

 

I wouldn't be surprised if they announce their plans for 1 or both of the 950's next week.

But maybe not before the opening of the new Microsoft Store in Sydney on Thurs.

 

Actual availability won't commence until early to mid December, possibly later.

Any feedback on this yet? I am sure the pre-orders from the Microsoft online store is been sent already. When will they be available in Australia via Telstra? I am up for a contract renewal right now and my contract expired last month and I want the Lumia 950. I have not heard anything via that "register interest" link at all.
