Telstra plans and deals for Samsung Galaxy S21, S21+ and S21 Ultra

Samsung has announced the first major smartphones of 2021, the new flagship Samsung Galaxy S21 range. These much-anticipated devices include the standard S21, the S21+, and premium S21 Ultra, and each phone is now available to buy on Telstra plans.

All three devices are 5G-capable, and are perfect for use on Telstra’s new 5G mobile network. If you’re interested in picking up the S21 on a Telstra plan, here’s all the details on prices, deals and offers.

Telstra offers and deals

Pre-order the S21 or S21+ on a Telstra plan, and Telstra will throw in a free pair of brand-new Samsung Galaxy Buds Live in Mystic White valued at $319. Go for the premium S21 Ultra, and you’ll receive a free pair of the just-announced Galaxy Buds Pro in Phantom Silver, normally priced at $349 outright.  This offer is available now through to January 28, 2021.

Telstra is also offering a huge discount on its Extra Large postpaid plan when combined with any of the Galaxy S21 series of phones. Normally $115 per month, this plan will now include a $50 per month bill credit for your first 12 months – saving you a massive $600 in your first full year. The Extra Large plan includes unlimited standard talk and text in Australia, 180GB of full-speed data, and unlimited speed-capped data limited to 1.5Mbps.

Finally, if you’re trading in an eligible Samsung device with Telstra, you can save up to $600 on any new S21 phone. Trade-in value will be applied in the form of a bill credit, and eligibility criteria applies.

Telstra offers 12 and 24-month device payment options, which can be bundled with any of its four SIM-only month-to-month plans, as listed below. While you’re technically not locked into the plan itself (and you’re free to swap between plans if you need), cancelling your plan with Telstra requires you to pay off the remainder of the device.

About Telstra phone plans

All Telstra plans include unlimited standard national talk and text in Australia, a full-speed monthly data allowance, plus no excess data charges in Australia – once you go over your fast data inclusion, you’ll be able to continue using your data, but at capped speeds of 1.5Mbps. This is still fast enough for standard definition video streaming, and data usage resets at the start of your next billing cycle.

Telstra also offers data-free streaming of NRL, AFL, AFLW, Australian netball and Hyundai A-League soccer. Plans also feature data-free Apple Music streaming (subscription required), and free use of the Telstra Air Wi-Fi network and Fon Wi-Fi when overseas.

Customers on Telstra’s Medium, Large and Extra Large plans will receive included access to Telstra’s new 5G mobile network, along with 4G coverage. Note that 5G isn’t available on Small plans, so be aware if you’re planning to use your S21 on a Telstra 5G phone plan.

International calls (and roaming inclusions) are notably absent from these plans, but they can be added on for an extra monthly cost. Separating your phone payments and plan price can give you more flexibility, and there are still plenty of extras available on these plans, but it’s still worth comparing the device prices and plans from other telcos to see if Telstra is right for you.
