6 of the Very Best SIM-Only Mobile Phone Deals for Any Budget

While it’s easy to assume that all mobile phone plans come with a handset bundle or post-paid plan, pre-paid SIM cards are still alive and well.

With some seriously impressive deals from Australian telcos, SIM-only deals are a perfect option for people wanting to save money, spend well or manage a budget, and there are deals to suit any need and price range.

Here are the very best options going around:

The No-Fuss Deal: Moose 16.80 Plan

With no contracts and provided via the Optus 4G Plus mobile network, Moose’s SIM-only plan offers serious value for money for those looking for a basic and budget option. The plan comes with unlimited texts and calls, plus 25GB of data for just $16.80 per month for the first 12 months. Not at all bad, if we do say so ourselves. 

The Budget Saver Deal: iiNet 40GB Plan

Starting at $15 per month for the first six months, this SIM-only plan offers unlimited calls and texts, as well as 40GB of data and comes via the Vodafone 4G network. Best of all, there’s no contract!

The Global Roamer Deal: Coles Mobile 30 Day Plan

Perfect for travellers and short-term visitors, this month-long plan comes with options to auto-recharge and has no lock-in contracts. The real drawcard, though, is its unlimited calls and texts within Australia and unlimited standard international calls to 15 countries for just $20 over the Optus 4G Plus network. That, friend, is what we call a bargain.

The Big Data Deal: Circles.Life 100GB Plan

This option is perfect for the heavy data lover who’s looking to spend smart and avoid the long-term commitment of a plan. With no contract or cancellation fees, this plan, which is on the Optus 4G Plus network, offers unlimited calls and texts and 100GB of data for a cool $28 per month.

The Feel-Good Deal: felix Unlimited Plan

If 100GB of data just won’t cut it, the felix mobile plan is the perfect fix. Offered through the Vodafone 4G network, the plan not only offers unlimited data, texts and calls but also comes with a seven-day satisfaction guarantee. Even better, felix is a carbon-neutral brand and plants a tree for every active customer each month. All of this costs just $35 per month for the first six months.

The Add-Ons Deal: Optus Choice Plus Plan

If you’re looking for a little extra on the side, look no further than this $45 a month no-contract plan from Optus. Offering 5G in selected areas, unlimited calls and texts and 20GB of data, but the cherry on top is surely access to Optus Sport and OS Fitness. Oh, and did we mention it’s month-to-month to meet your short or long-term needs?
