Dodo Mobile mobile plans

Compare Dodo Mobile's mobile plans.


Dodo Mobile is arguably one of the more recognisable MVNOs in Australia thanks to its intense marketing campaigns over the years that features an animated representation of the extinct flightless dove.

Dodo Mobile uses the Optus 4G network and offers a range of plans on both 12-month and month-to-month plans. It also still has a legacy-style PAYG SIM offering.

Dodo Mobile month-to-month phone plans

Dodo Mobile has three pricing tiers across both the month-to-month options and the 12-month contract offerings.

At the bottom there's the $19.90 per month pricing. That's 1.5GB of data and includes all local calls and local SMS and MMS. Up the top end, $39.90 a month will get you 8GB, plus 300 minutes of international calls to 88 different countries. No matter what plan you're on, you'll pay a default standard of $10 per GB if you go over your data limit.

  • $39.90 per month includes 8GB of data, unlimited national calls, SMS and MMS and 300 minutes of international calls
  • $29.90 per month includes 4GB of data and unlimited national calls, SMS and MMS
  • $19.90 per month includes 1.5GB of data and unlimited national calls, SMS and MMS

Dodo Mobile 12-month phone plans

The same system applies to the 12-month contracts, with just a few slight differences to the data on offer, presumably as an incentive to take the longer contract.

  • $39.90 per month includes 12GB of data, unlimited national calls, SMS and MMS and 300 minutes of international calls.
  • $29.90 per month includes 6GB of data and unlimited national calls, SMS and MMS
  • $19.90 per month includes 3GB of data and unlimited national calls, SMS and MMS

Dodo Mobile PAYG phone plan

Dodo Mobile has a rather old-school pay-as-you-go SIM where you dump in a sum of money that is spent on the various services on offer, like 11c for each minute of call-time and each SMS, plus 5c per MB of data. Depending on how much you put into you recharge, the expiry date differs.

  • $100 recharge has a 365 day expiry
  • $50 recharge has 180 day expiry
  • $40 recharge has 90 days
  • $30 recharge has 90 days
  • $20 recharge has 90 days
  • $10 recharge has 60 days

How does Dodo Mobile compare?

Dodo Mobile has good coverage speed thanks to the Optus 4G network, and the three pricing tiers adds simplicity that is definitely appreciated.

The PAYG offering might be of benefit to some, but you'll most likely be looking at either the month-to-month or the 12-month contract options.

If we're talking month-to-month, then Dodo Mobile does well for its price point, although better allowances can be found from the likes of TeleChoice.

If you can commit to a 12-month contract then that additional data boost makes a real difference.

Why should you consider Dodo Mobile?

Dodo Mobile has solid plans in an easy-to-understand format that have been around long enough to inspire some confidence.
Additionally, you could easily bundle up Internet connection, home phone and even the Fetch TV service if you needed.

Dodo Mobile recharge options

Dodo Mobile bills each month for the pricing tier you've chosen. If you go over your data there's a set fee of $10 which gets you an extra 1GB. You can check bills 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 Mobile store

If you’re using Dodo Mobile’s prepaid mobile plans, you’ve got a number of choices when it comes to recharging your service:

      • Via credit card online: Dodo Mobile’s online portal accepts recharge payments via Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Diner’s Club card.
      • Via BPay: Dodo Mobile Prepaid plans can also be recharged with vouchers purchased through BPay, again managed through Dodo’s online portal.
      • With a purchased voucher: Recharge vouchers can be purchased at a wide variety of retail outlets to top up your Dodo Mobile 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
