Yomojo Mobile Phone Plans Review

Looking for an easy, flexible, and affordable mobile plan that’s not just great for individuals, but also for the whole family? Yomojo is a small but competitive prepaid provider offering contract-free and low-priced mobile and data plans, with discounts available for multiple-line accounts – making it a great choice for parents looking to bundle their family’s mobile service.

Operating on the Optus 4G Plus network, Yomojo has been in the Aussie mobile game since 2015, when the company acquired then-existing provider Yatango. Three years on, and Yomojo continues to offer customers an alternative to not just the big three telcos (Optus, Telstra, and Vodafone), but also to lock-in mobile plans: if you want the freedom to switch plans without penalty, Yomojo’s flexibility is a huge plus.

With plans beginning at $9.90 per month, Yomojo’s options are worth considering if you’re looking for family-friendly mobile service, or just want to cut down on your monthly phone bill. Read on for everything you need to know about Yomojo.

Yomojo plans at a glance

Yomojo plans are available on prepaid, so you’ll pay for your usage upfront. So if you’ve had issues in the past with overages or unexpected charges, your Yomojo plan is a great way to protect against bill shock.

All plans are SIM-only, but don’t require you to sign a lock-in contract; in fact, you’re free to cancel at any time. Prices start at $9.90 per 30-day recharge, and will renew automatically at the end of each 30-day cycle.

What does Yomojo offer?

All of Yomojo’s mobile plans include unlimited talk and text (with the exception of the Kids Plan), plus data. Extras you may find on more expensive plans – such as data-free video or music streaming, or free subscriptions to services such as Apple Music or Optus Sport – aren’t included, but this makes Yomojo a worthwhile option for anyone looking for a no-frills plan.

Yomojo does offer some great features for families who want to keep their mobile plans on a single bill. Family Bundles are a great way to add multiple lines to a single account, and offer up to 15% in monthly discounts. Yomojo also offers parental control via its FamilyEye monitoring features, which allow parents to manage and keep track of their child’s activity online and on their device.

Below is a quick table listing some of the inclusions you’ll find on Yomojo plans.

Yomojo network and coverage

Yomojo is what’s known as a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO), which means instead of operating its own mobile network, the telco simply uses someone else’s. In this case, Yomojo’s coverage is provided by Optus, so customers will have access to Optus’ 4G Plus networks (except on the 30GB and 90GB SIM plans, which are both limited to 3G Plus data).

Optus’ network covers 98.5% of the Australian population – just behind Telstra’s network, and ahead of Vodafone. The telco has also been stepping up its rural coverage in recent years, and has committed to investing one billion dollars to improve service in regional and remote areas in 2018.

More than 2,200 new Optus towers have been built in over one thousand regional towns, and almost 1,500 existing towers have been upgraded – so even if you don’t live in one of the major cities, Optus is working to keep you connected.

Features and bonuses

All of Yomojo’s plans come with the standard national talk and text, plus data use within Australia.

  • International calls: Yomojo customers can buy International Voice Packs, which feature a set number of included minutes that can be used to make standard calls to 32 selected countries. 50 minutes is priced at $5; 100 minutes is $10; 200 minutes costs $20; and 300 minutes is available for $30.
  • Add-on data: Data Bolt-Ons can be added to your plan at any time, but will expire when your plan auto-renews. 1GB of extra data is priced at $11, with 2GB available for $20.
  • Auto-recharge: All Yomojo plans auto-renew every 30 days.
  • International roaming: Yomojo customers can use their service overseas in over 50 selected countries. Rates will vary depending on which ‘zone’ your destination falls under, but voice calls are charged from $1 per minute, with SMS and MMS priced from $0.50 per message sent. Data roaming begins at $0.005 per 10Kb (around $50 per gigabyte), up to $0.155 per 10Kb ($1,550 per gigabyte); we recommend buying a travel SIM before you head overseas, rather than using your Yomojo plan for data roaming.

Family discounts and parental controls

If you’re looking to combine all of your family’s mobile plans on a single account and bill, Yomojo offers Family Bundles for multiple lines. You can mix and match any of the six available Yomojo mobile plans on up to six separate lines, all of which are charged to your main Yomojo account.

If you do sign up for two or more lines on a Family bundle plan, you’ll be eligible for a monthly discount of up to 15%.

  • Two lines: 5% discount
  • Three lines: 5% discount
  • Four lines: 10% discount
  • Five lines: 12.5% discount
  • Six lines: 15% discount

Parents who want to keep their children safe online can sign on for Yomojo’s FamilyEye service – an optional add-on that allows mums and dads to keep track of their kids’ physical whereabouts and internet activity.

FamilyEye includes tools for managing children’s use of social media, apps and internet use, including safe browsing features and the ability to switch off apps such as smartphone cameras.  You’ll also be able to review and manage your family’s phone use, and receive precise location alerts for your children’s devices.

Normally $5 per month, per child, FamilyEye is currently free for your first three months of use.

Yomojo 30GB Plan

30GB for $59.90 is a great price for more than enough data, but customers should keep in mind that data is limited to 3G speeds. This won’t stop you from streaming and downloading as usual, but you won’t get speeds quite as impressive as those on Optus’ 4G network.

As with the 30GB plan, Yomojo’s 90GB option is 3G-only. Priced at $89.90 every 30 days, this plan also includes unlimited standard national talk and text – competitive pricing overall, but the lack of 4G data may be a deal breaker if you’re a heavy streamer.

Yomojo contact details/customer support

Need some help with your Yomojo plan or service? The telco offers several contact and support options, including:

How does Yomojo compare?

As a no-frills, low-cost telco, Yomojo provides some budget-friendly options for unfussy mobile users, especially if you’re looking for family or children’s plans.

If you’re interested in Optus network coverage, but want to shop around first, there are quite a few similar MVNOs offering cheap SIM-only plans – check out the list below:

Is Yomojo right for me?

Yomojo’s plans are ideal for users who want a simple, SIM-only option, with no bill shock or lock-in contracts. You’ll get the coverage of the Optus network, but pay less overall for your talk, text, and data, so MVNOs like Yomojo are a great way to shave dollars off your monthly bill.

Where Yomojo really shines, however, is as a multi-line option for families. The ability to combine all your family’s plans in a single bill, as well as discounts for multiple lines and the optional parental control features, make Yomojo well worth considering if you’re looking to simplify your family’s phone service.

Otherwise, the lack of perks and extras you’ll find on Optus, Vodafone or Telstra plans may be a deal breaker for some customers. But if you’re not interested in mobile streaming, international roaming or overseas calling, Yomojo provides some solid options for wallet-conscious phone owners.
