Now a Telstra customer

Luckily I never got that 3 Internet key for mobile broadband, nor the $20 Telstra phone plan, because Christine and I have opted for something much more fun: iPhones!

And yes, they are with Telstra, which let’s us get Internet access via NextG when VirginBroadband@Home plays up (due to congestion on Optus 3G according to Whirlpool forums). That makes it our third wireless Internet carrier. Third time lucky?

Proof of identity was still a little troublesome, but a birth certificate, 18+ card and credit card got me through. I avoided the Telstra shop and went to NextByte — the friendly local (next door to work) mac experts!

  1. Hmmmm….. gone over to the “Dark” side I see.You will have to give us a full report ( and demo) when we catch up in a couple of weeks. What is the phone bill like?

  2. I haven’t received a bill yet.”Dark side” is an interesting comment. I find the poor coverage on other carriers has left me “in the dark” more often 😉
