Buckle up as we embark on an exciting journey into the world of Telstra's 3G shutdown.

Goodbye 3G, Hello 4G and 5G! 👋

Let's face it, 3G has had its time in the limelight, and now it's time for a glorious farewell. With the global rise of newer and faster 4G and 5G services, the beloved 3G is gracefully stepping down.

But fret not, because this opens up a world of greater opportunities for all of us!

Get Ready for the Migration 🚀

On June 30, 2024, Telstra's 3G network will bid us adieu.

To ensure a seamless transition into the future of mobile technology, it's crucial to have a 4G/5G VoLTE capable and compatible device.

Trust me, you don't want to miss out on this cut over! 📲

Can I Still Call for Help? 🆘

Absolutely! But there's a little twist.

For emergency Triple Zero (000) calls on the Telstra network after the 3G closure, VoLTE is the way to go. Rest assured, our super-roaming powers are still at your service!

Just ensure your device is compatible with other carriers for emergency calls in case 3G isn't available. Safety first! 👍
