Prepaid Mobile Review – gotalk Recharge & Prepaid Mobile (July 2017)

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 four main plans, Anytime, Max, Straight Talk Plus and the new Aussie plan.

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.

The Max prepaid plan offers both peak and off-peak rates for your local calls. Off peak is between (midnight and 11 am) with local calls at just 10c/min and a 30c flagfall. Even with a 30c flagfall, over a 5 min or 10 minute call, the impact of the flagfall really diminishes considerably when you have such a low call rate. TXT are 15c across all plans. Data costs of increased slightly of late to 5c, which is on par with most other providers using the Vodafone network. The credit expiry on this and all gotalk plans is 90 days.

Straight Talk Plus has 15c/min calls with a 29c flagfall. This is the most expensive of the three plans at 59c 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 3c/min. Indonesia – Mobile, Max has it at 13c/min, Anytime at 5.9c/min and Straight Talk Plus at 9c. Therefore the tradeoff for costlier local calls is cheaper international calls.

gotalk have recently launched the Aussie $30 and $40 unlimited recharge option. Get unlimited local, mobile calls, 1300/1800 calls and unlimited TXT with both recharge amounts. Plus with the $30 recharge you receive 100MB data (charge per MB) or 1GB with the $40 recharge. Both gotalk recharge options have a 30 day expiry.

1 – rate per minute.
2 – expiry period in days
3 – cost of a 2 minute call. Number of 2 minute calls made using credit provided to any network (excludes calls within network). Where no minimum credit is indicated, $20 is used.
