Virgin Mobile Australia is now taking pre-orders for the hugely anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note II. Running on the Optus 4G Network the 4G enabled Galaxy Note II is available on a variety of plans starting at just $49 per month($29 with a $20 MRO Min total cost over 24 months is $1176) with free delivery, Virgin Mobile is also currently running a 5 months 50% off access fee which offers 50% off your first 5 months of access which you can’t deny is a pretty good deal.

We’ve already reviewed the 3G Enabled version of the Galaxy Note II which you can read here, but we’re also eager to test out the Optus 4G network which is now available in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Newcastle, Surfers Paradise and Brisbane CBD.

If you’re after a Samsung Galaxy Note II on Virgin, head on over to the Virgin Mobile website and check out all the plans for yourself.

I ordered mine a few days so on the big plan 59. When I typed in fusion with a capital F it did say is was accepted. Can’t wait now to get the phone.

Am currently on Vodafone waiting to upgrade to the Note 2, but they’re taking forever so am seriously thinking of getting this from Virgib. Am not sure whether the Optus network is better in/around Brisbane cbd than Vodafone

I’d say anything is better than Vodafone. They just announced it on their network though (you might have seen the post on this site):

It looks like it’s also cheaper with Virgin… plus Vodafone will always be behind when it comes to their LTE network…

I pre-ordered my Galaxy Note 2 over the phone today, and yes, they start shipping 3 Dec. Was able to negotiated 6 months half price access on $59 plan, I am an existing customer as well. If you have trouble getting the deal on-line, try negotiating over the phone 🙂

Thank you, I was wondering when the shipping day was. Ordered mine last week just before the pre-order time expired.
Much appreciated :3

Mine hasn’t shown up, and I haven’t gotten an email from Virgin on this :/
I am just hoping that it will show up in the next week ./sigh

You should get an email as soon as it is shipped and your tracking code should then be usable.

I haven’t had a confirmation email yet either.

The whole shipping “from” the 3rd of December… I wonder if they even had any phones in stock at the time.

I was hoping to have it by the end of the week, I don’t think that’s going to happen sadly.

Just as a tip to anyone who hasn’t received their first email, make sure to check your Spam folder as Google and Microsoft like to mark Virgin mail as spam XD

I pre-ordered mine with virgin yesterday. Unfortunately that 50% off for 5 months deal isn’t available for the note 2, as the deal doesn’t apply for any iPhone or Samsung products.

Did you use the promo code “fusion”?

I’m seriously considering this, and wondering if I should get this instead of waiting for the next round of the Nexus 4…

I did try the fusion code and it’s invalid. If you look at the fine print for the fusion deal you’ll see “^5 Months 50% off access fee: Savings of $222 available on Topless $89 plan. Offer only available online. New services only. Excludes BYO plans, all Samsung plans and all iPhone plans.”
I also forgot to mention they start shipping Dec 3rd in case people didn’t already know.

^5 Months 50% off access fee: Offer only available online. New services only. Selected plans only. 24 month contract required. Excludes BYO plans, all iPhone plans and Samsung plans (excluding Galaxy Note II). that promotion should be applicable to Galaxy Note 2.

Thanks for letting me know, annoying they changed it after I already pre-ordered mine. I’ll have to call them and hopefully they’ll honour that deal for me.

I got 50% off deal on the Note 2 by talking to them on the phone, after I placed the order online.

Should be able to get 6months at 50%? I asked for 5 months and they just gave me 6 months instead? o_0 Not sure why they did so but anyone should be able to get the same if you ask I imagine.

Scratch that… they now have a 3 months of 100% off – practically the same thing. Still, existing customers can just ring up the loyalty team and get the same deal, if not better.
