Vodafone Red plans offer 24 month contracts for a wide variety of handsets on its own Australia-wide network.
What services does Vodafone Mobile offer?
Vodafone provides services for contract mobile customers on its own 3G and 4G networks which provide services across Australia.
Its Vodafone Red contract offerings include SIM-only plans on month-to-month, 12 or 24 month terms, as well as plans that include a wide range of smartphones. Depending on your choice of plan tier and device there may be repayments involved in a handset plan.
How much does Vodafone Mobile cost?
Vodafone’s base level contract pricing with a handset over 24 months ranges from $40 per month up to $130 per month. All of these contract plans include unlimited standard national calls and texts, with higher level plans upping the data quota and inclusions such as international calling minutes.
What extras does Vodafone Mobile offer?
Vodafone offers an unusual level of flexibility in its contract phone inclusions, depending on whether your usage suits international calling, heavy data usage or entertainment via streaming and online media. You can mix and match certain combinations within those plans, which are dubbed as "Red Global", "Red Data" and "Red Play" respectively.
Specifically, you can opt for plans with bundled international calling minutes or additional data, or pay a small additional sum for both inclusions. Where you do have to choose is between bundled entertainment services, with a choice of six or twelve months (depending on plan tier) of access to the Sydney Morning Herald, Spotify or Stan, which are the Play contracts, or alternatively a quantity of Qantas Frequent Flyer points. You cannot choose both options.
Vodafone offers its contract customers a very simple international roaming proposition; for $5 per day while roaming across a large number of countries you can access any provisions in your contract at no additional charge. Given that all its contract plans include unlimited calls and texts, that’s a lot better than many roaming deals you might otherwise consider.
