Pezzaaaahh has indicated that this thread is about Sydney

Hi, I'm flying out to Sydney on the 27th of December to stay with friends for a few weeks in Manly! I have plans to go on a ferry on the harbour for NYE and that is about all i have set in stone so far!

There will be quite a few days where my friends will be at work and ill be looking for things to do during the weekdays! It's always better to share experiences so if anyone's about id be more than happy to meet up and check out some the stuff sydney/manly has to offer

What would be the best way for me to use T-mobile phone over there?

To get a pre-paid sim card ?

i use a lot of data mainly!

Make sure your phone is unlocked before you travel and then pick up a prepaid sim in Australia.

That being said, I don't think Australia has data plans as good as I have found in the UK. Check out Amaysim.

If youoare only going for a holiday as opposed to for months use three. Im on a pay as you go plan which is £15 a month and I use here in the uk. You get unlimited date, 3000 text and some amount of minutes and the good thing is you can use this plan in Australia just like you would in the uk. I have previously been to sydney and cairns last feb and never once did my phone not work. The only thing you cannot do is call oz numbers as when you have put £15 credit on you use this to buy a bolt on which means you'll have no credit unless ypu put more than £15 on and you will have whats left.

Is amaysim any good kellie? Can u get signal everywhere I'm going to be living in Coffs Harbour?

Yeah, they're cutting through at the moment as a company that offers the best low cost, no fuss data and they use the Optus network so coverage is quite good. Coffs Harbour should not be a problem.

All companies in Australia will either use the Optus or Telstra network. Telstra has the biggest network but they are overpriced.

Ok thanks, the one I have looked into is only 30 days with not tie down, so if the network is rubbish I could cAncel

Cheers
