Can I keep the same number?

Yes, you can definitely keep the same number! Just let us know the details of your existing number when activating. Click here to check number transfer requirements and process the activation online by following the instructions in 'Activating a SIM and transferring your number to SpinTel.

How and when will my SIM be delivered?

Your SIM will be delivered by Australia Post. The delivery time will depend on the type of postage selected at sign-up. Standard Post will take 3-7 business days and Express Post should only take 1-2 business days.


Activation timeframe

  1. New number activation: Activation of the new service will be completed within one working day. (In most cases the service will connect instantly and you'll simply need to insert the SIM into your device.)

  2. Transferring an existing phone number to SpinTel: Most transfers will become active within a few hours, but the process can take up to three working days depending on which provider you’re switching from. During the transfer, you can continue to use your current provider's SIM. If it stops working, this is a sign that your SpinTel SIM is in the process of being activated. Note: While the transfer is in progress, the SIM from your old provider should continue to work and will stop only when the phone number has been transferred successfully.
