Black Friday sale sim activation time limit

Hi,

 

I'd like to buy a phone & the $150 365 day pre-paid, both on special with Black Friday sale (assuming not sold out).

 

Is there a time limit on when the SIM needs to be activated by? The phone comes with a SIM which is 30 days. The 365 day has a SIM also.

 

Is the $150 PP able to recharge the included phone's SIM, or do I have to swap SIMs, and activate the 2nd SIM?

 

Current prepaid (Kogan) expires on end of Dec 2019, so I don't want any overlap if possible. IE. Kogan ends, next day activate Boost.

 

Also, would like to keep the number I have.

 

Thanks,

dRdoS7

I have the same question.
I wish to purchase a Boost 365 days service and give it to my daughter for Christmas.

If I buy it in late-November, can I activate it on Christmas Day?

Re: Black Friday sale sim activation time limit

The sims sold via the website https://boost.com.au/shop/ are sims with bundled value.

They are not recharge vouchers.

 

And while you can use them initially to bring in your own number from another provider, they are not able to be stacked or recharged using a subsequent sim bundle. So you cannot move your number from one Boost sim bundle to a new Boost sim bundle. They are basically designed for 1st time use.

 

Any sim ordered via the Boost shop should have atleast a 12 month validitiy period where you can activate them.

 

If a recharge voucher is what you are after, and you are quick, there is a recharge voucher deal running at Coles until today. https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/497201

Hi,

 

The 365 day voucher can be used to recharge the 30 day SIM that comes with the Boost phone?

 

If, so I'll whip into Coles after lunch. Smiley Happy

 

Order the phone when I return (or vice-versa).

 

Look forward to not using Vodafone network.

 

Thanks,

Thanks @

 

What is the time frame I would have in which to activate an 80GB 365-day $135/$150 voucher from Coles?
Can I buy today and activate on 25 December?

Hi,

 

I bought a 365 day $150 ($135 from Coles inc. a SIM) recharge today, the expiry is 18/07/21, so plenty of time.

Yes. It is a recharge voucher that is on discount (from Coles).
