Telstra Prepaid iPad SIM for Australia
This SIM is specifically for iPads only - it can only be used in iPads.
If you require a Telstra SIM card for Australia for other devices (tablets or phones), buy the $30 Telstra Prepaid Starter Kit here instead.
These Telstra iPad SIMs have 3GB preloaded and can be activated onto either a data only plan.
The SIMs are easy to activate online overseas before you come (recommended), or after you land in Australia. You will need to enter your personal details, an address in Australia (hotel is fine), and can make any additional payment using a foreign credit card.
Any SIM size is available for your device (need help with SIM sizes?)
We ship to anywhere in the world FREE
Express shipping is also available - shipping details here.
Full activation process is detailed here (just select iPad as your device and the plan you want).
It is a four step process that takes about 15 minutes
You can see the full details of the Tablet plans available here (note; these are specific to iPad only):
Recharge as and when you need to, whether you just want to just check your email each day or get involved in some heavy duty internet access, such as videos and music.
The easiest way to recharge is to download the Telstra 24x7® App, following the steps in 'Getting Started'. You won’t need any recharge credit to access this. You just need access to the Telstra Next G® network.
You can also get access to all of your Pre-Paid details via My Account for your iPad, by going tomyprepaid.telstra.com/ipad.
Handy Hint: To access My Account, from your iPad, you must turn off any Wi-Fi connection that you have open.
TETHERING (MAKING A HOTSPOT)
It is no problem to tether, or make a hotspot from your Telstra iPad SIM.
Credit expires 30 days after activation.
Your desired offer should be selected at the time your SIM is activated. Changing pre-paid offers is allowed up to 10 times per calendar year and can be a useful strategy to adjust to different circumstances or to maximise the value for your recharges. Make any change to your offer prior to your next recharge to get the rates and bonuses of the new offer.

Phones/devices which also have 4G/LTE work if they support Telstra's 1800Mz.
