Which Samsung Phone do you want a plan for?

Aussie telcos that offer Samsung phone plans

Currently, Telstra customers can pick from multiple Samsung devices, including the Samsung Galaxy S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra (both 4G and 5G devices), Galaxy Note20 and Note20 Ultra, the Galaxy Z Flip, Galaxy A51, Galaxy A90 5G and more. You’ll have to repay the phone over a 24-month period and bundle it with a month-to-month postpaid plan.

There are four postpaid plans to choose from and Telstra has eliminated excess data charges on all of these plans. Once you’ve reached your data allowance, you’ll be able to continue using data but at capped speeds of 1.5Mbps, which is still fast enough for standard definition video streaming. You’re free to switch between plans as your data needs change, however cancelling altogether will require you to pay off the remainder of your handset.

Keen on the Samsung 5G phones? While Telstra’s 5G network is only available in a small number of places, the telco is continually expanding this technology, so its worth looking to see if you’ll have access to the 5G network before picking up the device. Plans currently include free access to the 5G network, however after June 2020, the two lower-priced plans will require an additional monthly cost for continued access (the top two plans will have access included on the plans).

How much you pay for your phone plan each month depends on the device you choose. You’ll then be able to bundle with one of the following four Telstra postpaid phone plans.

The 2020 Samsung Galaxy S20 range is a step into the era of 5G with both 4G and 5G versions of the devices available.

Aussie telcos Telstra, Optus, Vodafone and Woolworths Mobile are all stocking the S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra. If you’re after the 4G device, each telco is offering at least one of the 4G devices, while all four telcos are offering the 5G versions of all three devices.

These three phones offer a big upgrade to the 2019 S10 series, and the S20 Ultra will appeal to avid photographers with a 40-megapixel selfie camera and four cameras in the back, including the 108-megapixel wide-angle camera.

If you’re concerned about excess data charges, both Vodafone and Telstra now offer ‘unlimited’ data plans for postpaid customers. Most of these plans include an allowance of high-speed data each month, plus unlimited slower data – this has capped speeds, starting at 1.5Mbps with Telstra, and with different speeds from Vodafone depending on your selected postpaid plan (ranging from 2Mbps to 25Mbps).

Vodafone customers can choose all four of the postpaid plans, which all have the data speed capped after you reach your max-speed data inclusion.

If you’re looking into Telstra, Australia’s largest telco has scrapped excess data charges on its suite of postpaid plans. This means that once you’ve used up your plan’s inclusion, you’ll be able to continue using data but at capped speeds of 1.5Mbps. This speed is still suitable for standard definition video streaming.

Depending on your choice of telco and plan, you can score some great extras and inclusions to go with your new Samsung phone.

  • Vodafone: Many Vodafone plans come with monthly international calling extras to select countries as well as ‘unlimited’ data on some plans. Discounts are also available for students and current customers signing up for an additional plan, and bonus data offers are frequently available. Data-free entertainment streaming can also be added on to select plans for an additional monthly cost.
  • Optus: If you love mobile streaming, Optus includes data-free sports on selected plans. Higher-end plans also include up to 4GB of international roaming data per month, and unlimited standard international talk and text.
  • Telstra: You’ll get ‘unlimited’ data with all plans at capped speeds of 1.5Mbps once you go over your data inclusion. All postpaid Telstra customers will also have access to Telstra Air Wifi hotspots, data-free Apple Music and data-free live sport from the NRL, AFL, AFLW, and Australian netball.
  • Woolworths Mobile: All of Woolworth’s postpaid plans include unlimited standard national calls and SMS. You’ll be able to grab bonus data from time to time and have access to up to 100GB of data banking.

 

Finding the best Samsung phone plan for you is pretty straightforward. Once you’ve decided which Samsung phone you want, it’s then a matter of comparing plans from different providers that are offering the phone you want.

When you’re comparing Samsung phone plans, consider which provider you’re interested in, along with phone plan prices and inclusions, such as data. The length of contract on offer might also determine which phone plan you choose.

Keep in mind that choosing a phone plan bundled with a new Samsung smartphone, will most likely keep you locked into a contract for 12 months or longer. If you’d prefer to not be locked into a phone plan, you might want to look at buying your Samsung phone outright and pairing with a cheap SIM-only phone plan.
