SIM Only Plans – Connect with Your Choice of Device

The hottest smartphones these days come with loads of hype behind them, as companies like Apple, Samsung and even Google mount lavish presentations to introduce the world to their latest creations. And tied right into that is the desire to get a hold of that awesome device as quickly as possible. Which, of course, means jumping online the second the new phone goes on sale and trying to beat the rest of the planet to a place in the queue to have the phone delivered on launch day.

Sure, you can get hold of one by signing up for a phone plan with your preferred provider. However, that means possible delays as demand outstrips supply. When your shiny new handset arrives at your doorstep, though, you’ll need some way of getting it connected to the network and the world. And that’s where SIM only plans come in.

The name says it all – you’re signing up for a mobile service on a contract, just as you would if you were getting a phone through your provider. But the cost of that phone becomes entirely in your control. There’s nothing to pay off on your monthly bill. Plus, if you decide to sell it and get a different model in a few months’ time, you can just swap out the SIM and stay connected without any hassle.

If you’re the sort of person who likes to buy their smartphone outright and avoid being locked into carrying that same phone for the next two years, a SIM only plan is for you. Usually around the same as phone plans in terms of call, text and data offerings at the various price points, cheap SIM only plans are the way to go if the phone in your hand is already yours.

Phone Plans

Those who need (and just want) a brand new phone can get one easily without having to pay up-front by taking up a mobile phone plan – these are always done on a contract. The price of your phone is added to your calls and data in portions each month. Some providers also let you swap your phone for a new model after 12 months on your plan, usually for a fee. If you want to be the first with the latest, a phone plan is the right fit for you.

SIM Only Plans

If you’d rather keep the phone you’re already using and are looking for better value on calls and data, a SIM only plan lets you choose whatever provider you like – as long as your phone isn’t network-locked. You can go on a contract to reduce the overall cost, or pay as you go, usually monthly, and be able to change providers if you want to at any time. Thanks to number portability, you always get to keep your mobile number.

Prepaid Plans

Prepaid plans let you set the budget for how much you spend on calls and data; you can buy one of a range of phones, then top up its call and data allowance as needed. Alternatively, you can bring your own phone and get a prepaid SIM card – the best of both worlds. Prepaid is a flexible way of getting connected without committing to a lengthy agreement.

Mobile Data Plans

If you’ve got a tablet or laptop that offers a SIM card slot to get online on the 3G or 4G networks, you’ll be able to get connected when you’re out and about easily – but you want a SIM and plan that is tailored especially for data use, as you won’t be making calls on it. Mobile data plans give you a SIM especially for your tablet or laptop, so you can always be online wherever you are. They also give you a lot more peace of mind when it comes to security compared to using public Wi-Fi hotspots.

To continue accessing the 5G network From 1 July 2020, you’ll need to opt in for $15 month to month, or included on eligible plans.

Device Payment Contract: You must have an eligible Telstra Mobile Plan in order to have a Device Payment Contract. If you cancel your Device Payment Contract early, cancel your mobile plan during the device payment term or move to an ineligible mobile plan during the payment term, you’ll need to pay out your device, in full.

Your speed will depend on a range of factors including your device, location, user numbers and download sources, and may be slowed further during busy periods. Heavy data users (users in the top 1% of all data users) may experience slower speeds than other users during busy periods.
