Can I use a Telstra Prepaid Mobile locked to Telstra network with a Boost SIM card

Can I use a Telstra Prepaid Mobile (Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus) locked to Telstra network with a Boost SIM card?  They obviously both use the Telstra network 850Mhz.   However, I am not sure what it means to have a mobile locked to a specific carrier.  Thanks!

Yes. The only Telstra locked phones that have any issues with Boost sim card was the earlier model iPhones. Other locked Telstra phone models work fine.

Absolutely!. The only phones locked to Telstra that needs to be unlocked are iphone 5 and earlier versions.

Hi, I went to a Telstra Shop yesterday to buy a 4G Prepaid phone.  They said a Boost Sim would only work on it if I had it unlocked for a fee.  Have they got it wrong, or something changed since your last reply?

As long as the model wasn't an iphone, it will work. Store staff will unlikely be willing to confirm that, though.

 

I am using a Samsung Galaxy Core Prime (Telstra locked) currently with a Boost sim.

Are you still using a Samsung Galaxy Core Prime (Telstra locked) currently with a Boost sim.

Boost phones keep failing.
