If you want the value of a contract without being tied down for two years with your existing handset, Telstra's BYO phone plans are worth a look.

BYO Phone does what it says on the tin, offering a contract plan for those who already have their own phone and want to keep it. Use the selector below to find out more about each plan.

    • Unlimited Telstra Air data until 27.3.2017
    • 3 Month Netflix, Stan & Presto subscription
  • Roaming charges
  • International call rates


    • Data sharing.The BYO plans qualify for data sharing with other eligible Telstra mobile plans, so you could pool data to get even more usage and value across multiple handsets.


      • Mid-range value. You secure your contract for a year, but lose the full flexibility of prepaid without getting quite the same value as you would with a full contract Go Mobile plan.

Who this plan would suit

The shorter term of the BYO plans should suit you if you're perfectly happy with your current handset but don't want to risk being cut off from calls, texts or data on a prepaid plan.

      Hi Mark,

      You can add a data share SIM to any Telstra Go mobile plan for an extra $5 per month. I would recommend the BYO L plan, which comes with unlimited calls, text and 10GB of data for $60 per month.

      Hi Shiny,

      You’d need to apply with suitable identification for any contract plan from Telstra at this stage, which would most likely rule out applying for a contract from overseas.
