Better Life Mobile review: Why choose it?

Better Life Mobile isn't too bad on its data offerings for the prices it charges, but it suffers a bit from limited rollover of data. What sets Better Life Mobile apart from other telcos is its focus on social welfare. It has some community programs in place where it distributes phones with credit to those in need. In addition to the basic plans, with Better Life Mobile you can get:

  • Video MMS. Better Life Mobile limits the number of video MMS you can send on its cheaper plans, measured in 40-second chunks. Higher plans allow for unlimited video MMS.
  • Data gifting. All of Better Life Mobile's plans allow you to receive gifted data from other Better Life Mobile users, but only the two most expensive plans can actually gift the data.
  • Data rollover. Unused data will roll over into the next month, after which it will expire.
  • International pack. For $10 extra per month, you can get 120 minutes of international calls to 50 countries.
  • Data pack. If you want extra data and are planning to stay with Better Life Mobile for 6 months, you can purchase 12GB more for $88 with a 180-day expiry.

 

Pros

  • Full month expiry. Better Life Mobile has full month expiry periods, so no extra recharges are required during the year.
  • Community support. Better Life Mobile has programs that benefit people who don't have easy access to communication. Some of its proceeds go towards these projects.

Cons

  • Limited rollover. Better Life Mobile doesn't have an ongoing bank for you to save up data. Rollover data expires the month after it's transferred.
  • Video MMS limit. On cheaper plans, you can only send a limited number of MMS per month.

Better Life Mobile network coverage

Better Life Mobile uses the Telstra wholesale 3G and 4G network, which covers around 98.5% of Australians. The main difference in coverage between the wholesale and full networks is in certain rural and regional areas.
