|Prepaid Mobile Review – gotalk (May 2013)|
|gotalk has slimmed and trimmed its prepaid mobile range. Some of their more popular prize winning plans have been closed, obviously too popular and probably too well priced. gotalk now sports three main plans, Anytime, Max and Straight Talk Plus. If you are looking for cheap local calls, particularly to fixed lines then 0c/min with the Anytime plan is the cheapest you can get. Calls to mobiles are at 19c/min and the flagfall on all calls is 29c. The call rates are competitive but the flagfall is a little on the high side for my liking. gotalk however is not only about local calls, they also offer very competitive international calls via all of their prepaid mobile plans. All gotalk prepaid plans offer free gotalk to gotalk calls for the first 5 minutes. Straight talk also offers free 5MB of data each day, extra data is charged at 3c/MB.Max has even lower rates at 10c/min with a 30c flagfall. TXT are 14.5c as they are across all plans. Data sits at just 2c/MB which is probably the cheapest in the market place for Pay As You Go data. The credit expiry on this and all gotalk plans is 90 days.Straight Talk Plus has 15c/min calls with a 35c flagfall. This is the most expensive of the three plans at 67c for a 2 min call. However calls to o/seas countries are cheaper, eg UK, Anytime has it at 3c/min, Max at 5c/min and Straight Talk at 2.5c/min. Indonesia – Mobile, Max has it at 13c/min, Anytime at 9c/min and Straight Talk Plus at 8c. Therefore the tradeoff for costlier local calls is cheaper international calls.
The final gotalk offer which applies to all plans is the $30 recharge. Recharge $30 for 30 days and access unlimited fixed line calls, mobile, 13/1800, voicemail plus TXT and 1GB of data. A great offer for $30, particularly if you are finding you are recharging at $30/mth a month anyway. However bare in mind that you will require additional credit to cover any international calls made.
