QUICK GUIDE: Services - Costs - Extras - Pros & Cons

WhFCC-SPINTEL-LOGOat services does SpinTel Mobile offer?

SpinTel offers SIM-only month to month postpaid plans on Optus’ Australian 4G network. There’s no provision for selling prepaid phones, so you’ll need to have an unlocked handset of some type to pair with a SpinTel mobile SIM.

How much does SpinTel Mobile cost?

SpinTel offers its simple plans on a month to month basis at four different price tiers, labelled as S, M, L and XL. All plans include standard national calls and texts plus a data inclusion ranging from 2GB up to 16GB depending on the price paid. There are no specific bundled extras for international calling or roaming provisions, but both services are supported at additional cost.

SpinTel does charge for its SIMs, with a one time $10 postage fee. You can opt for express postage of your SIM, in which case the cost is $20.

What extras does SpinTel Mobile offer?

SpinTel’s appeal is that it’s a quite simple SIM-only proposition on a postpaid basis. As such, additional extras are extremely thin on the ground. International roaming is supported at an additional cost but must be activated before you travel. In similar fashion international calling is supported at specific costs for each location, but that will incur additional costs on top of your monthly charge.

Pros

  • Simple plans Unlimited calls and texts, plus a little data and nothing else to muddy the waters, which means it’s easy to evaluate SpinTel’s value proposition.

Cons

  • SIM activation charge It’s not the only MVNO that charges for SIMs, but this is something that is becoming less common. $10 per SIM is a little on the pricey side.
