  • PAYG options if you're not a heavy mobile user.
  • Pretty good value on their six-month prepaid plans.

Lycamobile review: Why choose it?

Lycamobile has a bunch of different plans for almost any price point and data desire. It also has:

  • International inclusions. Many of Lycamobile's prepaid plans have free international calls to a certain number of destinations. Some allow for calls to 12 countries, while more expensive ones include 54 countries.
  • Data add-ons. If you're ever craving more data before your next recharge, you can purchase 1GB for $5, 3GB for $10 or 10GB for $15.
  • Unlimited Lyca-to-Lyca calls. If you happen to know a lot of other Lycamobile users, you can call them up for free no matter where in the world they might be.
  • Pay-as-you-go SIM. For customers who might be after a pay-as-you-go phone plan, you can order a prepaid SIM from Lycamobile with a set amount of credit on it. Credit will be deducted for every text, minute of phone call or bit of data you use. When you cancel with Lycamobile, any remaining credit can be used on a pay-as-you-go basis.

 

Pros

  • Wide range. No matter how much data you're after, Lycamobile has plans that hit almost any amount you could want.
  • Six-month prepaid. The six-month prepaid plans offer even greater value than usual if you're willing to stick with them for half a year. The value won't blow you out of the water though.

Cons

  • 28-day expiry. Having an expiry period shorter than a month means you'll be paying for an extra recharge throughout the year.

Lycamobile network coverage

Lycamobile's service is powered by the Telstra wholesale network, which covers 98.8% of Australians. Places where there may be a difference in coverage compared to the full Telstra network are usually rural or regional areas.

Lycamobile: FAQs

How to switch to Lycamobile?

Switching to Lycamobile is a fairly simple process:

  1. Make sure you have an unlocked phone already to put a SIM in. Lycamobile doesn't offer phones with plans.
  2. Purchase the plan you want online, which will come with its own SIM.
  3. Activate your SIM once it arrives. If you want to keep your own number, let Lycamobile know at checkout or activation 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 with Lycamobile?

Lycamobile provides two methods for recharging:

  • Online. You can either use the Lycamobile "quick recharge" feature or the MyLycamobile account function on your desktop or mobile browser. Follow the instructions listed.
  • Auto recharge. You can set up an auto recharge via MyLycamobile to have your plan automatically refreshed every period or when it falls beneath a certain value. Remember that this payment won't stop until you cancel it, no matter whether you're using the service or not.

Lycamobile accepts the following payment types for all recharges:

  • Credit and debit cards
  • Recharge vouchers purchased from local retailers or online at lycamobile.com.au

      Hi Le,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      You can visit Lycamobile Australia website to top-up your number. Midway on the page, you would see a table containing their prepaid plans. Look for your desired package and click “Existing Customer BUY HERE” orange button. Once clicked, you can put in your personal information and then the card information to complete the request.

      Just a reminder to consult Lycamobile directly or review their Information Summary sheets to know which package suits your needs.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Jonathan

      Hi Steve,

      Thanks for your comment.

      Lycamobile does work when you’re roaming in Indonesia. And yes, there are different rates to Australia when roaming in Indonesia. This is why you would be well advised if you’ll directly get in touch with Lycamobile.

      Regards,
      Jhezelyn

      Hi Mamta,

      You’ve reached finder. I would recommend contacting Lycamobile’s customer support on 1300 854 607 from another phone. They should be able to give you a PUK number to unlock your SIM.

      Thanks,
      Brodie

      Hello Mamta,

      Thanks for your question.

      No need to worry your PUK can be obtained from your service provider. All you need to do is give them a call and provide the needed information to verify your account and you may receive your PUK code to have your sim card unlocked.

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers!
      Chester
