Top features:

  • Free international texts.
  • Cheap zero data plan which is unique to Dodo.
  • Network includes 98.5% of the population.

Compare Dodo SIM only mobile plans

Dodo has a small range of SIM only plans for customers with their own phone. If you're only after calls and data doesn't matter, check out its $5 per month plan.

Dodo review: Why choose it?

Outside of its unique $5 no data plan, there's not a whole lot to recommend Dodo apart from the relative cheapness of its plans. However, you don't get a whole lot of data for what you pay. In addition, Dodo users can access:

  • International inclusions. All Dodo plans include unlimited international text to any country. The two more expensive plans include 100 or 200 minutes of talk to 35 destinations. You can add on 100 minutes to any plan for $5 extra.
  • Data packs. Get an additional 2GB monthly on any plan for $10.
  • MMS pack. If you like sending multimedia messages to your friends, you can get unlimited MMS for $5 per month so long as your plan includes data.

 

Pros

  • No data plan. Dodo's no data plan is one of a kind and perfect if you only care about being able to contact others by call or text.
  • International texts. All plans have free texts to international numbers.

Cons

  • Poor data value. Dodo's plans, while cheap, don't give particularly good data value for what they cost.

Dodo network coverage

Dodo uses the Optus 4G network, which covers around 98.5% of the population.

Dodo Mobile: FAQs

How do I switch to Dodo?

Switching to Dodo is a fairly simple process.

  1. Make sure you have an unlocked phone already to put a SIM in. Dodo doesn't offer phones with plans.
  2. Purchase the plan you want online, which will come with its own SIM, delivered free.
  3. Activate your SIM once it arrives. If you want to keep your own number, let Dodo know and it will arrange the transfer with your previous provider.
  4. Your SIM should be activated and your new service ready to go in a few hours to a day.

How to recharge Dodo?

Dodo bills each month for the pricing tier you've chosen. If you go over your data, there's a set fee of $10 that gets you an extra 1GB. You can check your bill on the Dodo site and pay in the following ways:

  • Automatic direct debit payment
  • Credit card
  • Paypal
  • In person at your post office or Dodo store

You've got a number of choices when it comes to recharging your service:

  • Via credit card online: Dodo's online portal accepts recharge payments via Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Diner's Club card.
  • Via BPAY: You can recharge Dodo's prepaid plans with vouchers purchased through BPAY, which you can manage through Dodo's online portal.
  • With a purchased voucher: You can purchase recharge vouchers at a wide variety of retail outlets to top up your Dodo prepaid mobile service.

      Hi Susanne,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      For your options please click this page.

      1. Select this feature if you only want to change your network our do you prefer a plan with a sim only.
      2. Should you be interested to a plan with a mobile phone please click this (as shown on screenshot) to choose your preferred phone.
      3. I would suggest to select “all providers” to have a better view while you are comparing the prices. But if you have preferred provider you may select it here.
      4. Choose your plan type.
      5. Select your preferred usage monthly.
      6. Click the search button to generate/view your options.

      I hope this information has helped.

      Cheers,
      Harold

    About the iPhone 6s how much do I have to pay monthly if I want two.

      Hi Fatme,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      Just to confirm, which iPhone 6s plan you’re referring to?

      Most telco companies’ price policy is applied for every mobile phone plan you get. So if you will take advantage of two iPhone 6s plans at the same rate, then your monthly bill will be doubled. It would also be best to get in touch with your service provider directly if the price would change (discounted or doubled) if you take two plans.

      Cheers,
      May
