Telstra adds Apple Music deal to Android phones
Want 12 months of Apple Music but don’t like iPhones? Telstra has a deal for you.
Telstra’s 12 month free Apple Music deal for customers on a 24-month contract was initially launched only for iPhones, which made perfect sense because at launch the only mobiles that could access Apple Music were iOS devices.
With the recent launch of Apple Music for Android devices, however, Telstra has expanded the deal to include Android devices on a 12- or 24-month contract. You’ve got to have a "compatible" Android device, which means a device running Android 4.3 or better.
The deal isn’t just a dangling carrot to entice new phone customers, however, as Telstra’s site indicates that it’s open to existing customers with compatible devices as well, excluding those on business or enterprise contracts. Telstra’s current SIM-only Go Mobile plans currently look like this:
Apple Music itself costs $11.99 per month, so over a 12-month contract you’d save $143.88 in access charges presuming you were already planning on using Apple music over that period.
As is the usual norm with data-heavy services, Apple Music isn’t free to access on Telstra’s mobile broadband network, so you should keep a close eye on your data usage. If you need more help with that, check out our detailed guide.
