    Mobile Phones

    Can anyone tell me which is the best pay-as-you-go SIM card to get in Perth once we arrive and what is the minimum amount you can get on a SIM card / top up? I think this is going to be a more cost effective way of keeping in touch with friends / rellies who we need to meet up with while we're there. Thanks Karen x 2 sleeps til we fly off to Perth ... and counting :goofy:

    Mobile Phones in OZ

    Hi everyone My mobile phone contract here has run out and we hope to go to OZ in February, so if I buy a new mobile here now with a pay as you go card, when i get to oz can I use my new phone from here and just get an Australian Pay as you Go contract to use with it? Hope this makes sense, and advise appreciated Thanks Lynda
  13. I have been pestering my Mum for a new mobile phone and would like one for Christmas. I would like a flip up one or a pink slidey up one, but my Mum says it might not work in Australia! Is she right???? Mum's not very up on mobile phone technology, can anyone help me??? Would we be best to wait until we get to Australia??:no: Thank you Roseanna xxx

    Sky TV and phones

    Hi, I have a query to settle a current 'shall we, shalln't we' argument in our house.....has anyone taken a UK sky box and dish to Oz and been able to make use of it by picking up the UK free channels? We are in discussions as to whether to bother taking them and paying for shipment etc, but more importantly whether my OH will dare climb the ladder high enough to retrieve the dish! also, has anyone taken house phones (normal BT cordless)? if so, do they work in Oz? thanks Sam and Shaun

    mobile phones

    can anyone tell me if our uk mobile phones will be compatible with australian sim cards ? It does seem that mobile phones are cheaper here in the uk as we have just bought new phones we were wondering if they will actually work once we swap to aussie sim cards ?

    Internet phones

    Tesco are selling internet phones for less than £10. Calls are free to other Tesco internet phones so my Christmas present list is half filled. Is there a catch that I as a techno-twerp am missing? What is skype then? I don't want to make any 'clever' purchases and live to regret it! Rebecca
  21. Hi sorry if this has been posted before but..... Just informed Vodafone of impending move to Oz, and have been told that because we are terminating our contracts before the end of the 18 mths there is an amount to pay, quite large I guess on two phones!!! Anyone else come across this and what did you do? Robbing bu****s we have been with them years too!!!! Our payments have always been paid on time. To pay or do a runner that is the question!! Cookie
