    Is there a phone company that still operates within Australia? It does my head in that I always have to call and talk to somebody from India who can barely speak English. I want to change my server.

      Hi Tina,

      Thank you for reaching out.

      There are still some Australian telecommunications and mobile phone service providers who have their own support team within Australia but some of the technical or customer support tasks might get assigned to the foreign agents since most companies shift to business process outsourcing nowadays. You can try asking for an Australian or onshore agent if you have a hard time communicating with the foreign agent. Some companies may accommodate you with that request and transfer your call to a local agent.

      I hope this helps.

    I am on the market for a QWERTY keyboard phone with unlimited talk and reasonable data i.e. at least 3-5 GB. I know QWERTY phones have become rare these days. But I really need one since I get a lot of work emails and I don’t personally like answering emails with touch screen phones. Any suggestions please?

    Thanks heaps.

      Hi MTH,

      You’re right that QWERTY phones are something of a rarity these days; your best option if QWERTY is a must would be a Blackberry, such as the Blackberry Priv; you can find our review of that phone here:

      Hi Veronica,

      Sorry to hear about your phone. You should get in contact with your provider to find out if you’re phone is covered under your contract.

      Thanks for getting in touch.

    I want to know what the different carriers charge for data over your initial data allowance. The cost of 1 GB seems to vary from place to place. Have you done a comparison like this before?

      BrandonD | May 19, 2016

      Thanks Brodie. The reason I ask is that my mobile service provider charges $10 per 500MB which I think is terribly poor, and a bit of a rip off. So I wanted to see what was comparable in the market, and its not something you see being done by anyone currently.

      Thanks for your answer anyway.

      Hey Brandon,

      Yeah, 500MB for $10 is half of what most offer. I’d definitely suggest shopping around.

      All the best,

      Hi BrandonD,

      We don’t currently have a comparison of excess data charges. Mostly because the standard is $10 for every GB used in excess of your included data with a few edge cases charging $15 per GB.

    I am in the market for either a Galaxy S5 or s7.

    I like the s5.

    what is your opinion on both and who has the best deals at the moment?


    • Staff
      Brodie | May 5, 2016

      Hi Adam,

      We’ve reviewed and compared plan prices for both the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Samsung Galaxy S7. The Galaxy S7 is obviously the superior handset out of the two, but the Galaxy S5 still holds up and even has a few features that were missing from its successor, the S6.

    Can I buy a Doro phone Easy 615 in Perth WA Thanks Lea

    • Staff
      Brodie | April 18, 2016

      Hi there,

      The only retailer in Australia who currently stocks Doro PhonEasy is Optus. They currently sell the Doro 623 (the latest model) for $99 on Optus prepaid. You should be able to pick it up somewhere that resells Optus prepaid handsets. Alternatively, you could just order it direct from the Optus website.

    Do you have this mobile phone ? I live in Perth WA, if so where can I get it?
    Thanks Lea

      Hi Lea,

      Optus sell the Doro PhoneEasy 623 (the later model) for just $99. You should pick it up at any store that resells Optus Prepaid handsets. Alternatively, you can order it from the Optus store. It’s worth noting that prepaid handsets sold through Optus will be locked to the Optus Network.

    Hello, My elderly mother lives with me and does not make many calls. Only about one local call per month. She is on a pre-pay plan with telstra and whenever she tries to make a call she has no credit because it has expired. Is there a plan you can recommend that will not expire monthly and is affordable for a pensioner. We have no landline and I’m concerned when I’m not home knowing she may not???? have credit when she needs it. She does not want internet acces on her mobile. She only wants to make calls. Thank you, Keshie

    Hi, what is the cheapest mobile phone plan that I can call overseas?

    • Staff
      Brodie | February 24, 2016

      Hi Tim,

      That depends on where you’re calling and how many calls you will be making per month. Lebara provides great rates for calling to most countries, but if you are looking for more local usage as well, you might want to check out Vodafone’s top-tier plans.

    I’m a small business owner and single mother who needs a personal phone and business phone (which can be a regular cell) both with unlimited talk text data and also need a phone for my daughter with only talk and text, the safer the better for her, whtas the best options for me

      Brodie | January 18, 2016

      Hi Jackie,

      For your daughter, I would recommend something like Optus Long Expiry or Vodafone Pay As You Go. These plans have no long term commitment and are prepaid, meaning your daughter can only use a limited amount of credit (this saves you from getting a whopping bill unexpectedly). Whether you choose to go with Optus or Vodafone would also be influenced by the carrier you choose for yourself, as it’s much easier keeping all phone numbers under one account and some carriers offer other benefits for calls between mobiles on the same network.

      I’d be happy to make some recommendations on your personal and business phones, but I would need to know what kind of handsets you would be interested in. It sounds like you only need something basic for your business phone, so I would recommend buying a low to mid-range handset and signing up to a SIM only plan. This will save you on your monthly fee as you won’t have any handset repayments.

      Hear from you soon,
