- Data sharing between plans on the same account
- $5 discount with a Commander broadband plan or office phone
- Smaller plans aren't great value
- All plans are on a 12-month lock-in contract
Commander's mobile plans offer little data for its high costs. If you're looking to sign up to a business phone plan, it might be worth shopping around and comparing your options.
Additionally, you'll be locked into a 12-month contract on all plans. This isn't the norm these days with most plans now offering no lock-in contracts.
Commander may be right for you if:
But keep in mind that Commander:
Commander only has 3 business phone plans, all costing you quite a bit for its lacklustre plan features.
If you're after a handset to use specifically for work purposes, Commander also stocks various Samsung and Aspera phones for you to purchase on a 24-month plan with one of its mobile plans.
These handsets can't be purchased directly online, so you'll need to request a call back from Commander if you're interested.
Being a business-focussed brand, Commander can help you with any issues or questions you have during the work week. You can contact them using the following methods:
Commander has a few extra features added to its plans:
Data is shared across every mobile plan registered to the same account automatically.
If you don't want shared data, you'll have to register the numbers to separate billing accounts.
Commander's $35 and $45 plans come with international call minutes to 58 selected countries. You'll get 50 minutes or 300 minutes depending on which plan you buy.
When you buy both a mobile plan and a Commander internet plan or office phone line, you'll receive a $5 monthly discount off every mobile plan on your account.
Optus also sells business phone plans of many sizes across various month-to-month and contracted terms. You can also get these plans with the latest Apple, Samsung and Google phones.
TeleChoice also has a selection of business mobile plans, which are actually cheaper than its personal phone plans. The only catch is that it only services businesses that need over 10 plans under the one account.
You can easily order a mobile plan online from Commander's website or you can also buy a SIM in-store if you don't want to wait around for it to get delivered.
Otherwise, you can keep comparing mobile plans on Finder to discover one that better suits your needs.
What if I want to keep my current phone number?
Simply choose the option to keep your number during the SIM activation process and Commander will handle it for you. Its website advises the transfer may take up to 5 business days.
If your current mobile number isn't registered under your name, it might take a couple more steps. Read our guide on how to change ownership of your mobile number here.
