Southern Phone

Southern Phone provides mobile services on either a SIM-only basis with 12-month contracts or with a range of bundled mobile handsets on 12- or 24-month terms.

Southern Phone provides service on the 4G network from Optus via its Green Plans or on parts of Telstra's 3G and 4G networks via its Orange plans.

How does Southern Phone compare?

Southern Phone's plans tell two different stories, depending on whether you need access to the Telstra network or wish to use the Optus 4G network. With Optus, you'll get substantially more data with each plan tier, but that's mitigated by the fact that if you don't have good Optus coverage, it's not going to do you much good.

Why should you consider Southern Phone?

Southern Phone offers flexibility in carrier terms, although you can't switch between Optus and Telstra without fundamentally changing your plan on a month-by-month basis. It's also one of only a few carriers to offer simple feature phones on contract terms if you're not keen on having a smartphone and just require simple mobile phone services.

    What constitutes “data” in regard to mobile phones?

      Hi Dennis!

      Thanks for the comment.

      Data is the exchange of information from the internet and your device or its applications. Whenever you turn-on your “data”, you are connected to the network and download or upload information. This includes emails, chat, browsing, internet banking, using voice over internet apps and many more.

      You may contact your network by calling their hotline for further details on how you can manage your data.

      Hope this clarifies.

      Cheers,
      Jonathan

    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
