numobile review: Why choose it?

numobile can be a fantastic way to save money whether you're grabbing a SIM-only plan with them or get tingan almost good-as-new handset on the cheap. On top of basic data and calls, numobile offers:

  • International inclusions. Depending on which plan you buy, you'll get unlimited international calls to 20 to 30 countries, including China, Brazil, France, the US, the UK and more. You'll also get 100 minutes of talk to up to 35 more. These inclusions are similar for long-expiry plans.
  • International inclusions. Some of numobile's plans offer unlimited talk and text to 15 separate countries.
  • Data bank. Data you don't use will be added to a data bank that you can access any time, up to a maximum of 200GB.
  • Data add-ons. If you run out of data for the month and need a little bit more, you can buy an extra 2GB for $10 or 5GB for $25.
  • "Freeze" service. You can't get roaming, but you can choose to suspend your service for up to three months if you go travelling without losing stored data in your data bank.

Pros

  • No early termination fees. If you leave a contract early, you'll only have to pay out the remaining value of the handset you bought.
  • Decent value. numobile's plans are perfectly good value, especially considering you're getting a phone as well, at a reasonable price.
  • Refurbished handset. When you don't need a brand new handset, a refurbished one can be a great option.

Cons

  • Have to get a phone. If you don't want a new phone, numobile's not for you.
  • No extras. numobile doesn't have any fancy extra features on its plans.

numobile network coverage

The numobile plans rely upon Telstra's wholesale 3G and 4G network, which reaches about 98.8% of the population. Usually, it's only rural or regional areas that might experience a difference in coverage compared to the full Telstra network.
