Mobile Phone Plans in Australia – Your Guide to the Best Deals!

Mobile plans for modern users – and modern usage!

Mobile phones and mobile phone usage have come a long way in the past few decades, and so too have plans and packages. With our handsets and devices now being increasingly important in our lives for anything from navigation to entertainment, data has become a crucial aspect of most people’s mobile phone plans. Changes have also been afoot in calls and texts, with plenty of providers now offering them on an unlimited basis – sometimes even on international calls.

Another big change has been to contracts themselves. Gone are the days of every provider offering nothing shorter than a 24-month contract. While longer deals are still around – and are great if you want a new handset or plan to bundle in streaming or landline connections – there’s now an excellent assortment of month-to-month contracts, which offer you much the same perks as the longer deals. Even prepaid deals have gotten better. So no matter what you’re looking for, you’ll find it. But when it comes to getting a new handset, lengthier contracts are still how most providers do it, which is just fair since you’re getting a new phone. In exchange for that long-term commitment, providers like Telstra throw in some hard-to-resist bonuses and perks for greater value, though the telco recently scrapped their long-term contracts in favor of total flexibility with their new month-to-month postpaid plans.

Data and streaming: An entertainment system in your pocket

If you’ve got a TV, desktop or laptop, you will have already seen the revolutionary changes brought about by streaming. The same is now taking place for smartphone users. No longer do we need to be near a Wi-Fi hotspot to watch that YouTube link; these days we can watch our favourite TV series or live sporting event purely from our device with a 3G or 4G connection. And while this has come about especially through higher data limits, several providers now offer free – and data-free – streaming of sports, music and television when you sign up. Aside from having access to the best shows, music and sport immediately from wherever you happen to be, you’ll also free yourself up to have a lower capacity on your phone or on a connected cloud service. And with 4G connections expanding to more and more regional and rural areas, the days of having to be within sight of Centrepoint Tower or the Eureka Tower to get a good enough connection are over. Even 5G has started rolling out in some parts of Australia!

Unlimited texts and calls – fast becoming the norm

Whether you’ve signed up for a prepaid, monthly contract or a longer-term deal, unlimited calls and texts to Australian numbers has become the industry standard in recent years. While some providers will limit your minutes or texts as part of your overall package, this is fast becoming an outlier these days.

Then there’s international calling. For a long time, international calling was a no go for most mobile users who didn’t want a sky-high bill at the end of the month (i.e. pretty much everyone!). These days, with data limits ever increasing and calling apps now more widespread than ever, international calls are far easier to make. There are even some providers like Moose Mobile and Southern Phone who have included international credits into some of their deals.

Top mobile provider

Asking which provider is the best one is like asking ‘how long is a piece of string?’ The answer depends on what you want – and what you need. The good news is that it’s the best time ever to be a mobile phone user in Australia. From data-free streaming to unlimited national and international calls, there’s something out there for everyone. Telstra has always been competitive in terms of their phone plans. The telco has also revamped their mobile offerings to make them more accessible with their no lock-in contract plans. Now, you can get connected to their extensive network from $55/month or higher depending on your chosen plan or device.

Telstra Mobile

The original Aussie telco has become one of the country’s best mobile phone providers in recent years. Telstra Mobile offers loads of different options – we’ve got eight different mobile plans on our compare site alone – all of which can be purchased on a month-to-month basis. Part of the telco’s recent developments in their postpaid plans is that you can add a device to any of their month-to-month plan. This means getting a new smartphone no longer requires you to sign up for a 24-month contract.

If you don’t need a device, then you can just bring your own, also with no lock-in contract and no excess data charges. Moreover, all plans come with Unlimited Telstra Air Wi-Fi data, as well as unlimited calls and texts to Australian standard numbers. Meanwhile, international calls are no longer included in any of their mobile plans. So, unlimited calls and texts to 21 countries is another $10/month if you need it.

For sports lovers, all Telstra mobile plans come with access to the AFL, AFLW, NRL,Netball, and Hyundai A-League live apps – fast and data-free. So if you want to watch your AFL, rugby league or netball, you can do it in great quality without eating into your data limits. All phone plans also include data-free Apple Music subscription.

As what can probably be expected, Telstra plans aren’t the cheapest on the market. Their cheapest plan is more than double some of the other providers’ low-cost options, although Telstra gives you more bang for your buck than pretty much any provider out there. You’ve also got the security of being connected to Australia’s biggest and best mobile network.

Lease Plans

Mobile lease plans are no longer available but customers already signed up to one will remain on their existing plan arrangement. You still have the option to upgrade after 12 months. Simply choose a new handset on a 24-month repayment term and add to a month-month postpaid plan. There’s an upgrade fee of $99 if you upgrade after 12 months while it’s free if you upgrade after 18 months. Your current phone also needs to be returned in good working condition within 14 days.

Mobile Swap Assure

Mobile Swap Assure is no longer available for purchase. Existing Mobile Swap Assure customers can still use it to upgrade their phones regardless of damage, for a flat fee of $190. Just select the phone you want and add it to any of their no lock-in contract mobile plans, which you can pay out for 24 months. Return your old phone afterward. Customers can use the Mobile Swap Assure twice per year.

Buying A Phone

With a Telstra Mobile Plan, you can pay off your new handset over 24 months and own it for good. The plans available for buying a new phone are as follows — the Small plan at $55/month, the Medium plan at $65/month, the Large plan $85/month and the Extra Large plan at $115/month. It’s important to note that these are just the plan rates. These go higher depending on your chosen phone. If you chose the latest handset, expect for a higher mobile charge to be added to your opted plan. Finally, signing up to Telstra also allows you to personalise your plan according to your needs. You can add entertainment, sports, and accessories to your plan at any time.

New Phone Feeling

Telstra’s latest postpaid plans let you add a new phone, which you can pay out after 24 months. Eyeing the freshest smartphone technology available, customers can also upgrade to the latest one when you redeem Telstra’s New Phone Feeling offer. How does it work? After 12 months, you have the option to get the latest mobile phone without needing to finish your 24-month term. Simply pay $149, take up a new eligible 24- month phone plan, and return your current handset in good working order and you’re all set. You score the newest mobile technology available in the market hassle-free. Whenever a newer, sleeker device is launched, you can trust Telstra to help you make it happen the simple way.

Important note: New Phone Feeling is no longer available to new users signing up on and from 14 January 2020. Customers that purchased eligible plans prior the said date can redeem the New Phone Feeling as per existing terms. All you need to do is return the device in good condition, pay the upgrade fee, and take up a new month-to-month mobile plan with a a new device repayment contract.

More Inclusions

Telstra’s mobile deals may not be the cheapest in Australia but they certainly are the most valuable, inclusion-wise. Apart from huge data allowances of up to 180GB, Telstra also offers other add-ons for free. For music lovers, there’s free Apple Music streaming so you can stream all the latest songs as much as you want without affecting your data allowance. If you’re a sports fan, you can stream AFL, AFLW, NRL, Netball and the Hyundai A-League on your device wherever you are, LIVE and data-free as well. Plus free Foxtel Now and BINGE subscription for up to 3 months!

Cancelling your plan: If you are on a Telstra Mobile Plan and you cancel your service, you will receive a pro rata refund for the remainder of your month. If you have any device, accessory or service add-ons attached to your plan, you will have to pay any remaining amount owing on your next bill.

Data usage: This plan comes with a data allowance to use in Australia. Your data allowance is for personal use in a smartphone or tablet and the FairPlay Policy applies. You won’t be charged if you go over your monthly data allowance. Instead, you can continue to access data up to speeds of 1.5Mbps. 1.5mbps isn’t suitable for HD video or high speed applications, and means that some web pages, social media content and files may take longer to load). In addition, heavy data users (users in the top 1% of all data users) may experience slower speeds than other users during busy periods. The speeds you actually receive may vary depending on a range of factors including your device, location, number of users and download sources.

If you go over your 200MB, we’ll add an additional 500MB for $10 for use within 31 days. A Day Pass is triggered whenever a call is made or received, an SMS is sent or if any mobile data is used in an eligible country.
