BYOD: Unlock the benefits of bringing your own device

What is BYOD?

Bring Your Own Device, or BYOD, allows you to use your existing smartphone or tablet with a new mobile plan, instead of purchasing a new device when you sign up.

BYOD benefits: Why you should consider it

Cost Savings: Switch to a SIM-only or prepaid plan once you've paid off your phone. These plans can be more affordable than bundled plans and allow you to avoid long-term commitments.

Flexibility: BYOD plans offer a variety of options and pricing, making it easy to switch between plans based on your usage and budget.

Environmentally Friendly: Prolong the life of your current device and reduce electronic waste by opting for a BYOD plan.

Familiarity: Continue using a device you're comfortable with, without needing to learn how to navigate a new one.

Set yourself free: What to check before switching

Contract Status: Confirm that your handset is paid off and that you're no longer on a handset plan before switching to a BYOD or prepaid plan.

Network compatibility: Ensure your device is compatible with the network you want to use (we use parts of Telstra’s 5G, 4G and 3G mobile networks). While most modern devices support Telstra’s 3G and 4G bands, it’s best to check first.

Unlocked: While uncommon, some older devices (especially branded ones) may be locked to their original network, and you may need to unlock it or use a different device if this is the case.

Embrace BYOD for cost-effective and flexible mobile plans

Choosing a BYOD plan can save money, provide greater freedom in selecting your plan, and promote a more sustainable approach to technology use. Just make sure your device is compatible with your new plan.
