Flip mobile review: Our verdict

Flip only has a few mobile plans in its range offering pretty average value across the board.

New customers do get $10 off for the first 3 months on all plans, so Flip could be an economical choice if you're looking for a short-term solution.

Flip could be right for you if:

  • You're looking for a simple mobile plan. There's no fancy bells and whistles with Flip's mobile plans, just calls, texts and data each month.

But keep in mind that Flip:

  • Doesn't have international roaming. You'll have to buy a local or travel SIM in order to make calls and send texts overseas.
  • Requires a full month notice for cancellation. This means you'll have to pay for another month of your plan from the day you decide to cancel.

Value for money

Flip offers 3 mobile plans that should cover you for most of your needs, whether you only need a bit of data each month (with its smallest 6GB plan) or more to browse and stream on your phone (20-50GB).

  • Good to know: Flip's bigger data plans with 20GB and 50GB monthly aren't too bad in terms of value. They average $0.90 per 1GB (with the initial 3-month discount) which is quite good against the benchmark of $1 per 1GB. After 3 months though, the value worsens to $1.25 per 1GB.

Things to watch out for

  • You have to give a full month's notice to cancel your mobile plan. This is unlike most mobile providers which don't charge you extra or have any notice period for switching plans.
  • You can only make payments by automated direct debit.

coverage icon

Coverage

Flip uses the Optus 4G network to give coverage to mobile customers.

  • Optus' network covers 98.5% of the population – greater than Vodafone (96%), but not as much as Telstra (99.5%).
  • You'll get exactly the same coverage as if you'd bought your plan directly from Optus.
  • When you're in metro areas you should have no reception issues, but you could lose coverage in some rural and regional areas.

customer service Icon

Customer service

Flip has a couple of ways to get in touch if you have a question, with contact hours of 9am-8pm AEST Monday to Friday and 10am-4pm Saturday. You can:

  • Ring the customer support line.
  • Send a message to the social media page on Facebook.
  • Shoot through an email if you don't mind a slower response time.

bonus icon

Bonus features

Flip does not have any bonus features attached to any of its mobile plans. It just comes with your stock standard calls, texts and monthly data allowance.

Which rivals are giving Flip mobile a run for its money?

For cheaper data:

gomo logo

gomo has pretty cheap plans that are bursting with data, plus up to 200GB of your unused data rolls over to subsequent months.

For bonus features:

aldimobile logo

ALDI not only has data rollover between months, but also free international calls and SMS to 20 countries on most of its plans.

For better coverage:

boost logo

Boost Mobile utilises the full Telstra 4G network on its range of prepaid plans, reaching 99.5% of the Australian population.

What if I want to keep my current phone number?
You can transfer your existing mobile number to Flip when you sign up for a new plan. Flip doesn't say how long the transfer will take, but porting generally takes between 24-48 hours.

If your current mobile number isn't registered under your name, it might take a little longer. Read our guide on how to change ownership of your mobile number here..
