So I need a new mobile phone plan. I’m overwhelmed by the choice. I don’t really want a mobile phone but have got used to the (now obsolete) Virgin deal where you could send unlimited text (to another Virgin user), make a few calls before your credit expired (like 2 or 3 a year for me). It was $15 for 6 months. I am overwhelmed by choice. What plans have you found that work for you? And any similar to this ‘basic deal’ where you really only have the phone for emergencies.

Want more real mum questions sent to you?

  • I am a little like you ..use my phone for the occasional phone call but text a bit. I have an Optus prepaid.

  • i don’t use a mobile phone but my husband uses Vodaphone pre-paid and he’s happy with it.

  • Living rurally, we have no option but to use Telstra. We do get a few account credits by bundling our internet, home phone and mobile plans tho

  • It can be overwhelming and I would suggest going to stores and reading all fine print on deals. They will have information you can take away and digest in your own time.

  • Go to JB HI FI and talk to someone there, they are good at giving you your options across all companies.

  • I live in regional WA and I don’t have much choice. I am with Telstra on a casual mobile plan. 25 dollars a month with just 200 mega data. But with other companies there is a terrible reception. Even if there are surely a lot of better deals out there, in particular if you live in big cities.
