Dodo mobile review: Our verdict

Dodo may be known for its Internet plans, but its mobile plans aren't too shabby either.

Even without its 50% off sign-up discount, its plans are fairly decent value if you're just looking for simple call and data inclusions.

We think Dodo will suit you if:

  • You're just after a plan that let's you talk, text and browse the web
  • You'd like unlimited international texts to any country

Value for money

If a straightforward mobile plan is what you're after, Dodo will suit you just fine.

It's fantastic value for the first 2 months thanks to its sign-up discount cutting the price by half, but even after the promotion ends, its plans perform very strongly.

  • Good to know: Dodo's 2 highest data plans have an average dollar-per-data value of $0.88 per 1GB. This is great against the benchmark of $1 per 1GB. Its smallest plan costs $5 per GB, which is pretty standard for plans that only offer 1-2GB a month.

Things to watch out for:

  • There is no Dodo mobile app so you can't easily check your data usage on the go
  • While Dodo advertises its plans as being postpaid, you actually pay for your plan at the start of each month

Coverage

Customers in most metro areas shouldn't struggle too much for reception with Dodo.
  • You get access to the full Optus 4G network, which reaches 98.5% of the population
  • You'll get exactly the same coverage as you would on a plan direct from Optus
  • Those in rural and regional areas may notice the small difference between Optus and Telstra's 99.5% population coverage

Bonus features

Dodo only really has 1 extra feature worth noting:

🌏 International inclusions

All but the $10 plan from Dodo come with a handful of international call minutes to 35 countries and all include unlimited international SMS.

For $5 extra per month, you can add on another 100 international call minutes to the same 35 countries. This is potentially useful if you want to stay in touch with a friend or family in other countries.

Which rivals are giving Dodo a run for its money?

Dodo's $5 plan is one of the cheapest plans on the entire market, but there are other providers with excellent budget options available, too.

For a little more data:


Moose logo

Moose Mobile runs on the Optus network and also has other great value higher data plans, with promotions lasting for a full year.

For more budget options:

amaysim logo
Another provider in the "cheap mobile plan" circle, amaysim has a 2GB for $10 plan too. If you're after more data, amaysim has bigger plans too and a wider range.

For better coverage:

Boost Logo

Boost is the only smaller provider that uses the full Telstra 4G network that reaches 99.5% of Australians.

What if I want to keep my current phone number?
You can choose to keep your current phone number during the sign-up process with Dodo. Simply select the option and Dodo will handle the rest, usually within 24 hours.

If your current number is under someone else's name (a parent or partner), it might be a trickier. Check our guide on how to transfer ownership of your mobile number.

    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
