Contract under 18


Hello, I am a 16 year old student who earns around $450 a week as part time, switching to full time soon.

is it possible that I can go on a mobile contract plan or do I still have to be 18+ to go on one?

Re: Contract under 18


That's a pretty good income at 16, well done!


But unfortunately the answer is no. You can't legally sign a contract until you're 18 in Australia.


Any chance your parents/older sibling/good family friend would be up for putting it in their name? 


FWIW if you have the money, pre-paid offers are very competitive these days so buying outright and going on one of those doesn't result in losing out these days
