Southern Phone mobile phone plans

Compare Southern Phone's standalone SIM-only plans as well as its contract phone offerings.

Is Southern Phone right for me?

  • What does Southern Phone offer? Southern Phone offers postpaid SIM-only plans on the Optus mobile network, as well as a small range of handset plans on the same network. Despite the name, Southern Phone also deals in broadband plans including NBN, ADSL and mobile broadband services.
  • Product highlights: Solid value on 12-month plans.
  • Watch out for: Southern Phone's 12-month plans are cheaper than their month-to-month counterparts, but you could have to pay an early exit fee of up to $110 if you choose to cancel your contract early.

Southern Phone Green plans

Southern Phone's Green plans explained

Southern Phone's Green plans operate on a postpaid basis with coverage handled by the Optus 3G and 4G networks.

Southern Phone contract plans

Southern Phone's contract plans explained

Southern Phone also offers a range of handset contract plans for folks who want a new phone as well as a new plan. These plans are focused primarily on affordable feature phones and budget smartphones, but you can also find a few premium smartphones up for grabs, too.

These contract plans pair Southern Phone's regular Green plans with a 24-month handset contract. Handset repayments will vary depending on your handset choice; for example, the table above shows what you'd pay for a Samsung Galaxy S10 on Southern Phone's contract plans.

How does Southern Phone compare?

  • 12-month Green plans represent solid value for money
  • Month-to-month plans don't stand up as well against the competition

Why should you consider Southern Phone?

Southern Phone offers solid value on its 12-month plans, especially if you're interested in its higher-tier plans. It's also one of only a few carriers to offer simple feature phones on contract terms, which is handy 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
