It’s very easy to migrate your current mobile number to a new service as your old service continues to operate until the new service is online.
Just sign up to your new provider and they will do the rest. Normally it takes a few hours to migrate between companies unless they are on the same network which then can take a day or two (but your service will continue until you have migrated)
Most offer no lock in contracts.
Usually cheaper to buy your phone outright and sign up to these providers than to get your phone on a contract.

How to transfer your mobile number to another mobile provider
- Find a new mobile provider.
- Enter your details online with your old phone number & account number if have it.
- Number will be transferred.
We have found if transferring within the same network eg Telstra provider to another Telstra Provider it can take longer than changing network to say Optus (which can just take a few hours). Make sure you call your new network if changing between the same network on different mobile companies to make sure it goes through normally.
There have been stories that if a large number of mobile users are transferring their numbers, the transfer process can take longer as there is only so much capacity in the system.
Always check the coverage of the telco you are signing up to (be that low cost version of Telstra, Optus or Vodafone) as this is one of the commonest reasons for complaint to the telecoms ombudsman. If you are buying instore (most of the cheaper don’t have this option- saving you money) then ask the salesperson for coverage maps/details for the specific area you want to use your phone. This way if the coverage is poor or not what is expected you may even be able to get out of the contract due to incorrect advice given under consumer laws.
Ways to save on your mobile
There are a few cheats to save you money on your mobile phone calls.
Sometimes you are charged a hefty premium for phoning 1300 or 13 numbers on your mobile! Many new plans now include 1300 numbers in national call allowance (but check your provider)
To save you money on 1300 calls there is an app call 13Save App. It finds the national landline numbers instead of 13 & 1300 so they are cheap or even better included in your tariff.
e164.org is another site where you can find these numbers online. These may not be the latest numbers you can use.
