So my wife wants a new phone, we are on an exsiting go onebill - obviously XT doesnt offer that plan anymore.

So looking at prepay or the onerate 50 plan - does anyone know if telecom still allows you to put the phone on your phonebill and pay it off over 12 months?




For billions of years since the outset of time, every single one of your ancestors survived, every single person on your Mum and Dads side, successfully looked after and passed onto you life.  What are the chances of that like?

Yes wife did that recently, transferred her CDMA over to the XT combo plan and is paying the phone off over 12 months with zero interest easy peasy.

If Onebill best suited you then the closest XT plan is the combo plan, still a post pay with a monthly fee

From Telecom website...

"for just $14.95 you get 20 included minutes and you can use them to call any network at any time of day. And if you happen to use up your included minutes, then there's just a flat rate of 75c per minute for national calls"

Yes they do. On an account only, not a prepaid handset.

Can be open term on the plan, but entire handset cost becomes payable immediately if you terminate the plan before handset is paid off.
