    Mobile Phone SIM Card

    We arrive in Melbourne next week & will need to get new SIM cards for our mobile phones. Can anyone tell me where you can buy these & what the best network is in terms of coverage etc around the Melbourne area? Thank you!
  2. My OH is coming to oz for a week on a visit visa. We would get our pr maybe a month or two later. He needs a mobile connection, preferably with Skype but ok without if it's much cheaper. How does he go about it when he arrives? Can he get a sim at the airport? Are Payg sims and rates very costly? Any help much appreciated.

    Hi all, Does anybody know the best sim cards to get before flying out just want to be able to call when we get there . thanks chris:chatterbox:
  4. DEar friends would appreciate if some could provide me with the cellular and ISP market information: - which type of Documents are required to buy and activate the SIM - How many popular ISPs, GSM and CDMA operators existis in Victoria - which one of them is a SMP (significant market payer as per their number of subs), because that will be more beneficial to utilize the free minutes promotions provided for on-net calls - Are there any hidden charges - what is the minimum top-up amount - Mode of charging, is it CPP (Calling party pays) OR sub has to pay for both incomming and outgoing calls - Are the mobile operators charge Romming charges between states - if there is no balance (funds) availabe in the account does the incoming and GPRS also stops - If I have a mobile set available with me can I buy SIM only - Is there balance transfer facility avaiable from sub to sub - Is there emergency balance available (if there is no balance in the account is there a facility provided by the operator that sub can make a 1 or 2 min call on a specific number Regards, Wasif Saleem

    Moblie phone, payg or contract

    My mobile is getting a bit old, was thinking of getting a new one. Should I get a new payg/sim-free one here (UK) and get a contract sim in Oz (to help with credit ratings?) or pasg sim? Or wait till I get out to Oz and buy a payg and contract sim or free/cheep phone with contract sim, or payg phone and sim? I think that covers all the options! Thanx for you patience James PS. Orange are doing the blackberry 8900 payg 4 250 quid (Is this advertising and is it allowed?)

    mobile phone sim cards

    in aug while in sydney i bought a vodafone payg sim card. . how long is that sim active for . i know there is no credit on it now but im hoping to use it when i revist oz next month ????
  10. Hi everyone, Can anyone recommend an Australian mobile phone sim provider before we get to Aus. We are heading for Perth. When we get there (eventually) we will also be getting broadband so any that go hand in hand would be great to know of, but we won't get brodband till we arrive. Thought it would be great to tell everyone our new number before we even leave the UK and knock another 'must do' off our list. Thanks in advance of any info. Glen & Shirley

    SIM cards and mobiles in Aus

    Hi I am needing a new mobile phone now, but don't leave the UK for 6 months or so. I'm therefore hoping to take my new phone with me, and get an Aussie SIM card when I arrive. Does anyone know if you can buy SIM cards in Australia on their own, or would I need to buy into some package/contract including a new mobile? Thanks in advance! :smile: Susie.
