Lebara Mobile

Founded in Europe in 2001, and arriving in Australia in 2009, Lebara has long been known for its brand of calling cards that enabled those with friends or family overseas to get in touch at hugely discounted rates. Their prepaid mobile service continues that tradition but takes the complications of the calling card out of the picture, allowing Lebara customers to call directly from their mobile to a vast range of international destinations at extremely low cost.

Those looking for the best value will be heading straight for Lebara’s top-end prepaid plan, which offers unlimited usage pretty much across the board – national fixed-line and mobile calls, texts and MMS messages and unlimited calls to 60 international countries. With a healthy 5GB of data included along with it, you’d be hard pressed to find a better value way of keeping in touch with people overseas. Those who need to make less international calls are well catered for by cheaper plans that offer a set number of international minutes or, for those who want to control their usage more tightly, super-cheap international rates on a $10 30-day SIM.

Partnered with Vodafone for mobile network access in Australia, Lebara offers fast 4G data speeds as well as superb coverage across Australia thanks to Vodafone’s recently upgraded national 4G network.

Lebara Mobile Review: Lebara Mobile

Especially great value for those who call internationally a little or a lot, Lebara also has a lot to offer those who just want a value mobile service in Australia. Its support for fast 4G data and voice is a definite plus, and it’s only text messagers who’ll need to be careful and keep it to text-only, no pictures!

Lebara Mobile FAQs

Lebara specialises in providing SIMs for great rates on the phone you already own. However if you are in need of a new, unlocked smartphone without paying too much, they can sell you either an Apple iPhone 5c or a Samsung Galaxy S5 for $499 each, as long as you sign up to one of Lebara’s plans for 12 months.
Thanks to their years of calling card experience, Lebara has their products available in hundreds of retailers around Australia, from post offices to supermarkets to convenience stores. You can also purchase a Lebara SIM online directly from their web site – which can give you some significant discounts and bonus data on some plans as well.
No – you’ll pay 15c per international text message sent, regardless of country. This shouldn’t be too much of a hassle, as the goal of Lebara is to get you talking overseas cheaply – and you can always make use of free messaging from WhatsApp or Facebook if you need to get a quick text message through and don’t want to pay.
