Last updated:


Is numobile right for me?

  • What does numobile offer? numobile offers pre-owned smartphones on 24-month repayment plans. These pair with month-to-month SIM plans powered by parts of the Telstra 3G and 4G networks.
  • Product highlights: Much cheaper than buying new, 12-month warranty on all handsets, data banking up to 200GB.
  • Watch out for: Despite numobile's 51-point certification process, you might notice differences between its second-hand phones and brand new handsets from other retailers. Make sure you understand this going in to avoid disappointment.

numobile's phone plans explained

numobile takes a different approach to phone plans than your typical telco. It offers second-hand smartphones from Apple and Samsung on 24-month repayment plans, any of which can be paired with one of numobile's month-to-month SIM plans.

Because the SIM plans operate on a month-to-month basis, you can swap between them without paying any cancellation or recontracting fees. Should you want to switch to a different provider entirely, though, you'll have to pay out the remaining cost of your chosen handset.

How does the numobile certification process work?

numobile advertises all its second-hand phones as "nucertified", which means they've undergone a 51-point inspection process at numobile's Sydney testing facility. This process checks that each phone is capable of:

  • Making and receiving calls and texts.
  • Accessing the Internet.
  • Taking clear photos and videos from both the front and back cameras.
  • Recognising touch gestures accurately.
  • Connecting to Wi-Fi networks.
  • Using its GPS for geolocation.
  • Producing clear audio through both its speaker and headphone jack.
  • "Correct" battery performance.

Additionally, each phone is unlocked and completely wiped of existing data. The screen should be as-new and the body of the phone should have no more than a few visible scars or blemishes.

Each numobile phone also comes with a 12-month warranty. If at any point in those 12 months your phone no longer meets numobile's certification standards (provided you didn't damage the phone in any way), numobile will either repair or replace it at no cost to you.

Should you accidentally damage your numobile phone or need to return it after the 12-month warranty has expired, numobile will only charge you a maximum of 40% of your remaining handset repayment fees.

How does numobile compare?

numobile has the advantage of being one of only a few Australian providers offering pre-owned smartphones on contract plans. Since it charges significantly less for its second-hand phones than other telcos do for brand new handsets, it is a much more attractive option for folks wanting to spend as little as possible.

When you combine that price advantage with a range of solid SIM plans and the benefit of Telstra network coverage, numobile stands out as a compelling alternative to buying new.

Why should you consider numobile?

If you want to enjoy all the features of a modern smartphone but don't want the steep price tag that typically comes with it, numobile is well worth considering. Its second-hand phones offer all the same functionality as their brand new counterparts, just at a much lower price. And with each handset including a 12-month warranty, you're protected in the event anything goes wrong.
