The best Amaysim SIM-only mobile plans for July

Amaysim’s SIM-only prepaid plans could make a great alternative to the pricier options offered by the major Australian telcos. If you’ve got a phone you love – or want to keep your device and mobile plan separate – Amaysim may be your go-to service for great value plans, efficient customer service, and nationwide coverage on the Optus 4G network.

So, if you’re weighing up making the jump to Amaysim, the next step is picking the plan that best suits your needs. Good news: unlike some competing providers, Amaysim keeps it really simple, offering five prepaid plan tiers – each of which includes unlimited standard calls to Australian mobiles and landlines, and unlimited Australian texts and MMS. But if you need a little extra help with locking down your best option, here is a guide to what could be the top cheap, high-data, and international mobile plans from Amaysim.

Top cheap plan

Although Amaysim’s most affordable prepaid plan is priced at $10 per billing period, the value for money proposition offered by the $20 plan seems to be strong. In addition to unlimited talk and text within Australia, you’ll also get 2.5GB of data to use every 28 days – slightly better value than the 1GB included in Amaysim’s $10 plan.

Of course, if you’re a low-data user, that one gigabyte may be more than enough for your monthly data needs. As with all Amaysim prepaid plans, this option will automatically renew every 28 days.

Also try: Kogan Mobile Small 30 Days Plan. 3GB of data, plus unlimited national calls & texts, for $16.90 every 30 days.

Top big-data plan

Amaysim’s biggest data option is its 20GB plan, priced at $50 every 28 days. If a decent chunk of your mobile use is dedicated to YouTube and Spotify, uploading to social media, or even Skyping or gaming, this plan is probably your best bet. In fact, 20GB of data is enough for up to 80 hours of mobile Netflix streaming each month, assuming you don’t use those gigabytes for anything else.

This $50 plan also features some great international inclusions (which are further outlined below), plus unlimited talk and text within Australia. Overall, it’s Amaysim’s top-tier prepaid option, and could be great for phone users who want the peace of mind of big data, without paying big-data prices.

Top international plan

Amaysim throws in international extras on its $30, $40 and $50 prepaid plans. All of these plans include unlimited standard talk and text to both mobile phones and landlines in 10 frequently-called countries, as follows:

  • China
  • Hong Kong
  • India
  • Japan
  • Malaysia
  • New Zealand
  • Singapore
  • South Korea
  • United Kingdom
  • United States of America

The $40 and $50 plans also come with an extra 300 minutes of standard calls to mobiles and landlines in a further 22 countries, including Canada, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Philippines, South Africa and Thailand. You’ll also receive unlimited SMS to all of these countries from within Australia.

If you don’t require 20GB of data, but want to take advantage of all of Amaysim’s international extras, you might want to consider the $40 plan, with 15GB every 28 days. You’ll get plenty of data, all of the above overseas call features, and unlimited talk and text to Australian numbers.

Is Amaysim the best deal?

Amaysim is a popular choice for Australians looking for a low-cost mobile plan; in fact, the brand has taken out the Canstar Blue Most Satisfied Customers award in the Postpaid Mobile Plans category for the past three years. In addition to the plans themselves, customers love Amaysim’s easy sign-up and activation process, simple billing, and plan flexibility – there’s no lock-in contracts, so you can leave or change plans at any time.

However, if you do want more data for your dollars, you may want to try a competing operator such as Southern Phone, Yomojo, Moose Mobile, Jeenee Mobile or OVO Mobile. All of these brands offer similarly priced plans on a month-to-month basis, and all run on Optus’ 3G and 4G Plus networks.

If you’re looking for something on the Telstra network, you may want to try ALDI Mobile, Boost Mobile, or Woolworths Mobile for your SIM-only dream plan. And if your preference is Vodafone coverage, you can sign up with Kogan Mobile, Think Mobile, or TPG.
