amaysim's primary SIM-only product is its range of post-paid "Unlimited" plans. Post-paid means that you're billed at the end of each recharge period based on usage, with any excess usage (most likely data usage since plans have unlimited call and text) added to the amount paid. amaysim operates on a month-to-month rolling contract basis for all of its plans, with no ongoing commitment beyond your current period. All of amaysim's plans operate on a 28-day billing period, which means you actually incur 13 recharges across a full calendar year.
If you're not a heavy phone user, then instead of an amaysim unlimited plan, you may be better served by amaysim's simple As You Go plan.
The As You Go plan operates on a simple credit basis, with standard national calls to mobiles or landlines charged at 15 cents per minute (including voicemail retrieval) or 29 cents per minute to 13 numbers. SMS is charged at 15 cents each, while MMS costs 49 cents and data is charged at 15.4 cents per MB unless you also bolt on a data plan.
amaysim's services all operate on the Optus 4G network with no particular speed restrictions beyond the quality of service in your area and any limitations of your particular mobile device. As an MNVO, amaysim sells on the value of its plan offerings, which also extend to quantities of international calling on selected plan tiers.
amaysim has a long reputation for delivering quality mobile services on a no-commitment basis, so if you're dissatisfied with your existing provider, it's well worth considering an amaysim plan.
Like many MVNOs, the focus for amaysim is on a simple, limited-ongoing-obligation set of plans with its Unlimited plans, but amaysim does have a unique point of flexibility in that you can select plans on a prepaid or a postpaid basis. The key difference here for most users is data usage. If you opt for a postpaid plan, where you're billed at the end of the month, and you go over your data quota, you're topped up with 1GB of data at a flat $10 rate. If you opt for prepaid, you can buy data top-ups at $10/GB if you go over, but they're not automatically applied.
amaysim does sell smartphones with a wide variety of available models sourced from both local providers and overseas sources, but it does not explicitly pair those handsets with any contract. You're free to use them with amaysim SIM-only plans, of course, but you're not required to or tied to any long-term contract when doing so.
In terms of international calling inclusions, many plans provide unlimited standard calls to China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, the United Kingdom and the USA. Higher tier plans also include calling minutes to Austria, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Canada, Chile, Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Pakistan, Philippines, Poland, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey and Vietnam. Other calling destinations will incur additional call charges.
Now you're all set to start using your new amaysim mobile service. Congratulations!

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
