What services does Southern Phone offer?

Southern Phone offers postpaid mobile phone services on a SIM-only basis using parts of Telstra's 4G networks as well as Optus’ 3G networks. It offers both SIM-only plans on month by month or 24 month contract terms, as well as a wide variety of plans that include a bundled mobile phone handset.

How much does Southern Phone cost?

Southern Phone operates plans on two different tiers with a direct effect on the price that you pay. Its Telstra-based 4G 24 month contract plans start at $15 per month for the budget plan with 100MB of data and $100 calling credit up to $70 per month for its XX Large plan. Its Value 24 month plans, which operate on Optus’ 3G network only start at $15 per month for the same quantity of data and calls but scale more rapidly in terms of data inclusions.

For its SIM-only month to month plans it splits plans between its "Value" and "Unlimited" tiers, both of which operate on Optus’ 3G network. As the name suggests, the Unlimited plans offer unlimited standard national calls and texts plus either 2GB of data for $35 a month or 3GB of data for $40 per month. Its Southern Value plans on a month to month SIM only basis start at $20 per month with $200 worth of call credit and 500MB data, up to $45 for $800 of call credit and 3GB of data. Standard 2 minute calls on the Southern Value plans cost $2.38, with a per-minute charge of 99c plus a 40c flagfall.

What extras does Southern Phone offer?

Most MVNOs offer simple SIM-only products, but Southern branches out offering a variety of handsets on 24 month contract terms alongside its standard SIM-only products. These range from high-end devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S7 down to more budget range products such as the Onix Easy To Use phone.

Pros

    I’m trying to finalise my plan but my mobile cut out. I have rang three times in an attempt to complete my application (which is on your computer file), but to no avail. Don’t email me.

      Hi norm p.

      You’ve reached finder, not Southern Phone telco. I would recommend contacting Southern Cross on 1300 019 408.

      Cheers,
      Brodie
