  • Network: Vodafone

Having pioneered in the field of connecting countries via international calling cards since their inception, Lebara has moved into the field of proving phone and data services directly with a strong emphasis on affordable calling to international destinations. Using the Vodafone network as their backbone, Lebara offers affordable prepaid phone and data services at excellent prices.

For Voice Users

  • Free Voicemail: Yes, on unlimited-call plans
  • Visual Voicemail: No
  • 4G Voice Calls: Yes

Lebara offers a versatile range of options when it comes to voice calling, including a superb-value top-end Unlimited Plan which, for $69.90 per 30-day recharge, gives you unlimited national calls and SMS – and unlimited international calls to a huge list of 60 countries. If you’ve got friends or family scattered around the world, this is very likely the ideal product for you; if you’re only planning on calling overseas occasionally, then you can opt for one of the lower-cost plans that still give you unlimited national talk and text, but limit your international time or the countries you can call. Lebara is one of very few providers that specifically supports 4G voice calls in supported areas, and that’s remarkable for a prepaid service; if you have a current-model iPhone or Samsung, you’ll get to take advantage of this new tech automatically.

For Text Messagers

Unlimited text is becoming almost the default these days – not surprising since it costs providers very little to manage and deliver them – so you’d have to be really strapped for cash to recharge with Lebara’s super-budget plan, which costs only $10 but doesn’t offer any free texts. All other plans come with unlimited SMS. One important note, though – even on the top-end Unlimited plan, text messages sent to other countries will cost you 15 cents, while MMS costs a whopping 95c per message, though there’s a $15 credit included you can use for premium services that are not included in the plan.

For Data Users

  • 4G: Yes
  • LTE Advanced: Yes

Lebara’s data offerings are pretty generous. The Unlimited plan at the bottom end packs 5.5GB, while the subsequent plan gives you 7GB of data per recharge. The Medium Plan offers 10GB. The higher-value plans include data inclusions up to 19GB, 33GB, and 63GB, respectively, every after recharge. We’d recommend sticking with the 5GB offerings for best value. Lebara also offers data-only plans for tablet users, all 30-day recharges that range from 5GB for $20, to a greater 12GB for $35, topping out at 25GB for $45.

Costs and Contracts

The terms with Lebara are simple – just recharge when you need to, and you’ve got 30 days to use what you’ve paid for. As mentioned above, your best value options here are the plans that offer unlimited calls and text; unless you use your phone very little, you’re going to want to spend the extra few dollars rather than try your luck with the only-slightly-cheaper limited plan.
