What services does Dodo Mobile offer?

Dodo Mobile’s services are provided on the Optus 4G network. It provides SIM-only PAYG plans, as well as month to month and 12 month contract SIM-only plans. Over a 24 month period you can also contract for a SIM and your choice of handset, which attracts an additional monthly payment.

How much does Dodo Mobile cost?

Dodo Mobile’s Pay As You Go plans operate in the same manner as other PAYG services; you pay an amount upfront for usage, and that’s the precise credit amount you have to spend on calls, texts and data. Standard Australian calls are charged at 11c per minute, and that’s the same price you pay for SMS messages. Data is charged on the Pay As You Go plan at 5c per MB.

Dodo’s monthly plans are offered on month to month, 12 month or 24 month terms, with prices at $17.90, $29.90, $39.90 and $49.90 respectively. The entry level Mobile 4G Lite gives you $500 "worth" of credit to spend on texts (29c each) and calls. A standard 2 minute call is charged at $2.37. The lite plan comes with 2GB of data. All other plan tiers offer unlimited standard national calls and texts, with the Big plan offering 3GB of data, the Mega plan 6GB and the Ultra plan coming with 9GB. Extra data is charged at $12/GB. The Mega and Ultra plan also come with 300 international calling minutes to a selection of 88 countries.

Dodo charges a flat $24.90 for a SIM card upfront.

What extras does Dodo Mobile offer?

On the higher tier contract plan, 300 minutes for calling international destinations are provided each month, with a selection of 88 eligible countries to call. If you pre-buy data blocks rather than automatically hitting the $12/GB barrier, it will only cost you $10/GB

Pros

  • No penalty for shorter contracts. Most providers offer bigger data quotas or extra goodies for 24 month contracts, making the 12 month and month to month contracts less appealing, but the inclusions are same whether you’re on board for one month or two years.
  • Wide range of phone choice. Phone bundling by MVNOs is still an uncommon matter, and Dodo Mobile offers a wide range of current and classic phones to choose from.

Cons

  • Very expensive SIMs. Most carriers are so happy to have you as a customer that the SIM is either nominally priced or free. Not so with Dodo, which charges a punitive $24.90 for a SIM card
  • iPhone plans use refurbished phones. Get an iPhone on contract elsewhere and it’ll be new out of the box, but Dodo’s iPhone plans use refurbished models instead.

    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
