    What carrier and plan to sign up for in Australia?


    Hi . i have a pearl that I brought with me to Melbourne,Australia and am trying to figure out what plan and carrier I should sign up for. Voice and pin messaging are the most important,assuming that texts will automatically work anyway. It 's been pretty confusing to sign up so far. Any help would be great. Thanxxxx.

    There are three networks in Australia

    It is generally accepted that Telstra have the best coverage, Optus second and Vodafone thirdm thiugh this does depend upon the specific locale.

    I personally am with optus and use their 79 voice cap and platinum Bis bolt on (allows access to blackberry data so you can pin and use BB msgr.

    Optus also have a 79 blackberry cap, includes $300 voice and text and unlimited data. You have to sign up on a 24mth contract to access this plan though.

    Telstra are a bit more expensive, I was going to switch to telstra, but they didn't have the Bold at the time.

    Good luck (PM me or PIN if you can) ~via BB (
