4. Go Talk Mobile services are for personal use only, In Australia only, and are not available to commercial customers or re-sale or re-route purpose and available to approved customers only.
gotalk Ltd ACN 091 707 970 (or, at the discretion of gotalk Limited, one of its
related bodies corporate on its behalf) ("We" or "Our" or "Us") will provide you
with the Prepaid Mobile Service ("Service"). Our Service lets you make calls and
send content from and as well as receive calls and content to your mobile phone.
To use the Service, you will need an activated SIM card. To activate your SIM card,
follow the instructions on your Starter Pack or see the details on
www.gotalk.com.au/mobile. When activating the SIM card, the correct details
for the person who will be using the Service must be provided. By activating the
SIM card, you warrant that the correct details have been provided to Us. Our Service
is not available in all areas of Australia. It is your responsibility to check that
mobile coverage exists at the location(s) at which the Service is to be used. You
may obtain coverage maps showing where the Service is available from
www.gotalk.com.au/mobile or by calling 1800 468 255.
Before you are able to use the Service you must have a sufficient credit balance
on your Prepaid account and to continue to use the Service you must recharge as
the credit is used up. The credit on your Prepaid account will expire in accordance
with the timeframes specified in your Plan. At the time of expiry, any unused credits
will be forfeit. You cannot claim a credit or a refund for any such forfeited credits.
Each time credits are added, a fresh credit validity period begins for those additional
credits and the previous balance rolls over when your recharge. If you do not recharge
your credit within 6 months of the date it expires, we may cancel the Service without
notice and reallocate your number to another customer. You may be able to continue
to receive calls and SMS within 3 months of the date the credit on your prepaid
account has expired and/or is zero. However, after the expiry of that 3 month period,
we may cancel this facility without notice to you (unless you have recharged your
credit in the interim). In any event, if you add even the minimum credit denomination
during that 6 month period, the Service will be fully restored. The Service will
be provided to you until it is cancelled in accordance with the Terms. Our Service
is supplied to you under the Terms, Our Fair Go Policy, the terms of your Plan and
the terms of any Offers you choose to take up. This summary should be read in conjunction
with each of these documents.
We may at times be required to change Our Terms and consequently do not offer ongoing
supply of a Service on the same terms and conditions as existed when We commenced
providing that Service. You acknowledge and agree that the nature of your Service
and the Terms on which We supply this Service may change. If We do need to change
Our Terms, We will give you Notice of any changes as set out in Our Terms. However,
We reserve the right to change, introduce and/or withdraw all or any Offers and/or
pricing at any time. In this event, We will give you 7 days notice by putting that
notice on the gotalk website (www.gotalk.com.au/mobile).
The Charges you must pay Us will depend on the options and features of the Service
Plan you have selected. Charges may vary depending on special conditions that apply
to each Service Plan;your use of the Service (and any value added features of the
Service);the time of day (including peak and off-peak);the type of customers;the
origin and destination of the call;the volume of the calls made during the period;and
any applicable rebates or discounts that might be applicable. Where a Service Plan
change or Service change is initiated by you, this may result in loss of your remaining
call credits and loss of eligibility for Offers associated with your Service Plan
