Despite its name, Reward Mobile has very little in the way of features and rewards for customers who choose to sign up with them.
Its Ultimate plan is beaten by nearly every other mobile provider on the market.
Its Connect plans lack unlimited talk and text, expire monthly and generally have less value than any given pay as you go mobile plan.
The handset bundles require you to pair budget models with a small range of plans. You'll be locked into 24-month contracts with huge early termination fees.

You'll get 5GB of data for $42.95 a month, which works out to $8.59 per 1GB of data. This is very poor value compared to a benchmark of $1 per 1GB for other plans on the market.
This credit doesn't stretch far, considering you'll be charged a flagfall of 40c per call plus 99c per minute and 30c for each SMS.
The Connect plans average around $92 per 1GB of data and cap out at 1GB of included data, which means you shouldn't buy these plans if you're at all interested in browsing or downloading.

For wider coverage:

For affordable PAYG:
Compared to Reward's Connect plans, you'll get more talk and text for the same price with ALDImobile's PAYG plans that last a full year and have some of the lowest rates on the market.
For lots of cheap data:
If 5GB simply isn't enough for your needs, you can get up to 100GB for $45 per month with big-data provider Circles.Life. There are frequent promotions too, so keep an eye out.
Reward Mobile isn't available via Finder. Instead, you'll have to call Reward Mobile's customer support team to ask about its plans.
Otherwise, you can continue comparing mobile plans on Finder.
What if I want to keep my current phone number?
You can request a number transfer when you sign up to Reward Mobile. Once you've authorised the transfer, it should take between 15 minutes and 4 hours for the port to complete.
