Is Flip worth it?

If you're after a medium sized phone plan on the Optus 4G network, then Flip might suit your needs.

When it comes to the amount of data that you'll get, 20GB will more than suit the average Australian. After all, research by the ACCC suggests Aussies use about half that, going through 10.2 GB per month.

Flip will also suit those who want to bundle their internet and mobile plans together. You'll get this 20GB plan for $14.90 a month from your 7th month onwards, instead of $19.90.

But if you're looking for a plan that has a lot of add ons such as international inclusions and data roll over, then Flip might not be right for you as it's pretty light on additional features.
