Vodafone Prepaid Phone Plans

Advertisement

Vodafone is one of the big three telcos in Australia and in the world of big iPhone plans it would be easy to assume that the big telcos have forgotten about prepaid mobile. However, Vodafone still offers quite a few prepaid plans and recharges, and many are quite competitive. Read on to find out what plans and recharges are on offer, plus how they stack up against the tough, tough prepaid competition.

Vodafone Prepaid Plans & Recharges

  • ‘Combo Plus’ recharges from $30, with unlimited calls & texts, plus international on selected plans
  • ‘Prepaid 365 Plus’ recharges from $10 with long expiries and cheap rates for calls, text and data

Vodafone now has 6 prepaid recharges available – it all depends on what you want out of your phone plan.

Vodafone Combo Plus Prepaid Recharges

If you want a plan with a little bit of everything and you’re a regular phone user, these plans could be a viable option. These plans include generous data, plus unlimited national calls and texts; you’ll also get up to 1000 minutes of international calls to Zone 1 countries, and up to 150 minutes to Zone 2, depending on your plan.

The 35 day expiry period on the majority of these plans also means you can stretch your credit further. This makes it a viable solution for people who don’t quite use all their data on traditional 28 or 30-day plans.

Vodafone Prepaid 365 Plus Recharges

  • Dollar-value recharges available with 365 day expiries
  • Rates are 2c/MB data, 20c/minute calls, 20c texts

If you’re a low-key phone user or you just want something that lasts a while, a 365-day recharge may be a viable option. With Vodafone you have five recharge options – you can always add on more credit later – and cheap rates. 2c per megabyte is seriously cheap, when the industry standard seems to be about 5c a megabyte. Text prices are about average, while 20c for a minute of calling is quite cheap.

With these rates, $50 could potentially get you up to:

  • 5GB data
  • 250 minutes of calls
  • 250 texts
  • Or a mixture of both

For the occasional phone user or for a spare phone, these recharge options a well worth a look into.

How do Vodafone prepaid plans compare to other providers?

Vodafone has a large suite of prepaid plans and recharges on offer, with some plans seemingly very minute in difference. The question remains, however, is can you find a better deal elsewhere? That answer may be yes, but you’ll need to shop around.

If you want a fair bit of data plus unlimited calls & texts and not many other gimmicks, these plans may be for you. However, with plans starting from $30 for 6GB, there are some cheaper deals to be found. But if you want something with international credit included, however, it’s certainly hard to go past Vodafone. With a wide variety of countries available through its Combo Plus prepaid plans, Vodafone remains one of the strongest contenders if you want to call overseas.

Is a Vodafone prepaid plan worth the money?

Vodafone has a solid variety of prepaid plans to suit a variety of needs and people. From regular users who rely on lots of data and data bonuses, to those who need to call overseas and for those who don’t use their phone that often or just need a spare plan, Vodafone likely has you covered.

  • However the question remains – can you get a better deal elsewhere?
  • Vodafone provides hefty data bonuses and other deals, but in terms of flat out value, there may be other providers that can provide more for less.

Not only that, but in terms of the biggest telcos, Optus and Telstra are hot on its heels. Vodafone has an exciting range of plans in the prepaid world, and recharging is made very easy with the Express Recharge function, but by hunting around you may be able to find a better deal elsewhere.
