Here are some Frequently Asked Questions to assist you:
You're moving! That's great. Sign in to your account to move your Belong service with you. Alternatively, see Moving Home for more information. Remember to keep your modem as you can take it with you. If you are on a contract and Belong is available at your new address, we will restart your contract term once your service is activated at your new place.
We don’t charge you anything to move your Belong service to a new address. If you’re moving to an nbn area, an additional connection charge may apply if you are in a newly constructed building.
Unfortunately, no. We can only progress your order after you become the householder of your new home. If you sign up for a Belong ADSL2+ Bundle before moving in, your service won't be activated until some time after you move in. Then, you should receive your modem within 1-4 business days after your move in date and your service should be activated between 8-23 business days, (depending on what work is required to have your phone line set up, which may include installation and cabling). We’ll send you an SMS when your service is activated and ready to use. If you'd like to sign up for Belong Broadband on the nbn, or for Belong ADSL2+ Broadband (not a bundle), wait until you move in to your new home to submit your order, as we start working on the dispatch of your modem and activation of your service after you submit your order. This means your modem could be delivered and your service activated before you move in. You could also be charged for a service you haven’t used.
When you move home you can take your Belong Voice number with you, if you are moving within the same state. If you relocate to another state you will need a new number. If you can’t take your Belong broadband service with you then the price of your Belong Voice app will increase.
If you have recently moved into an address where there is already an active phone service connected not under your name, you can still join Belong. If it is identified that your order requires a Proof of Occupancy we will contact you. Why do I need to show Proof of Occupancy? As the previous occupant at this address has not arranged for the disconnection of their phone service, we need ‘Proof of Occupancy’ (i.e. proof that you live at your address) to allow us to pursue this matter on your behalf. In order for Belong to take ownership of the line and allow your connection to proceed, Belong must sight a Proof of Occupancy document to confirm your residence. This authorises Belong to disconnect the existing line on your behalf. What Proof of Occupancy documents can I provide? A Proof of Occupancy document can include any one of these: Lease Rental Agreement Contract of Sale Letter of confirmation from a nursing home (on appropriate letter head) Statutory declaration* from the new occupant and a utility bill (e.g. rates, power, water) Statutory declaration* from the property owner and the rent receipt from the new occupant Statutory declaration* from the property owner and the bond payment receipt Letter from the real estate agent and the rent receipt from the new occupant Letter from the real estate agent and the bond payment receipt. Please send through pages which include all these details: Full name Service Address Lease/rental commencement date or settlement date If you need to provide Proof of Occupancy, scan a copy of the accepted document and email to firstname.lastname@example.org. *Please Note: If your name is different to your account details, please include a statutory declaration to explain the difference with supporting information such as Drivers Licence or Marriage Certificate A statutory declaration must be signed by an appropriate witness e.g. a Justice of the Peace, police officer, chemist, or medical practitioner. When will my service be connected? Once the documents have been received and validated, your service will generally be connected within 10 business days, or on your Requested Connection Date, whichever is later. Please note that if your Proof of Occupancy documents have not been received within 14 business days of the Requested Connection Date, your order may be withdrawn.
