Telstra 2G Mobile Network is closing on 1 December 2016. If you have a 2G mobile device or SIM (often referred to as a ‘Nana’ phone) you will need to take action before this date to continue using the Telstra Mobile Network. You will need to do one or more of the following:
- Change the settings on your device
- Upgrade your SIM
- Upgrade your mobile device
- In some instances, you may need to upgrade both your device and SIM card
Once you take the action required, you will have access to our 3G/4G mobile network, which will provide clearer call quality.
After this date, emergency calling will not be possible, unless it is within the network coverage area of another carrier that supports 2G.
If you’re unsure of whether this change will affect you, use the tips below to identify if your SIM, mobile device or network carrier settings can only operate on the 2G network.
Optus is closing their 2G network on 1 April 2017.
