'Techxpert' retail chain Dick Smith has announced it will begin selling post-paid mobile plans through its stores as of today, in partnership with Telstra/Vodafone MVNO Think Mobile.

As we’ve previously reported, Dick Smith has been planning to launch post-paid mobile contracts in-store since last month. While initially announcing it will be providing Telstra, Optus and Vodafone services to customers, the retailer’s choice to partner with a smaller MVNO is its first step into the post-paid market.

So far, Dick Smith is making two Think Mobile plans available to its customers, both over a 24-month contract period:

Think Mobile Swift 3G Ultimate Plan

  • $59.95 per month
  • Unlimited standard calls, text and SMS within Australia
  • 4GB of data
  • Uses Vodafone's 3G network

The Swift 3G Ultimate Plan comes with either the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, the Samsung Galaxy Note II, the Samsung Galaxy S III, the Nokia Lumia 925, Sony Xperia Z or the HTC One, all for $0 upfront.

Think Mobile Classic 3G Plan

  • $50 per month
  • $500 of included standard calls, texts and MMS within Australia
  • 1.5GB of data
  • Uses Telstra's 3G network

The Classic 3G Plan offers customers a choice of either the Motorola Razr HD, the Samsung Galaxy Express, the LG Optimus L7 Dual SIM, the Samsung ATIV S or the Huawei Ascend P6, all for $0 upfront.

The deal is a great opportunity for Think Mobile, with the small company now reaching more potential customers than ever before. Dick Smith operates over 260 retail stores nation-wide.

Dick Smith is equally excited, with Director of Mobility Steve Toth stating the partnership means customers will now have “…a simple, one-stop shop for all their mobility needs, whether that’s post-paid, pre-paid, buying outright or 12 months interest free.”

Australians are already big fans of Dick Smith when it comes to buying smartphones, with the store being the country’s biggest retail seller of both the iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy S4.
