FAQs about mobile phone plans

What is the best mobile plan in Australia?

Ultimately the best mobile plan will depend on the customer, as they come with a wide variety of features, extras, data and call/text allowances, and more. Head over to our mobile comparison hub to see what looks exciting to you!

Which mobile phone plans use the Telstra network?

There are plenty of Telstra MVNOs, including ALDI Mobile, Belong, Boost Mobile, Lycamobile, Pennytel, Southern Phone, Tangerine Telecom, and Woolworths Mobile. 

Is it cheaper to buy a smartphone on a plan?

These days, you have two main choices when it comes to buying a smartphone. Either you buy it outright or pay it back over a period of time with a mobile provider (usually 24-36 months, interest-free).

While spreading the cost out over time can keep the upfront price down, there’s ultimately very little difference in overall cost between buying your handset outright or via your monthly bill payment. 

What's the most popular mobile phone in Australia?

Brands like Apple's iPhone and Samsung Galaxy are quite popular in Australia, with newcomers like Google Pixel following close behind. User friendliness, great features like high-quality cameras, and availability of purchase options has helped contribute to their ubiquity down under, though these may not be the cheapest smartphone models around.

These phones also tend to be quite flexible internationally, making them an appealing choice for visitors and outgoing locals alike.

Are smartphones vegan?

Astonishingly, not always. You can find more answers to your quirkiest questions with our new silly mobile FAQs
