Monthly Mobile Review – Optus Sim Only Plans (July 2016)

Optus Sim Only Plans have approached call and data allowances using minutes rather than a dollar value. In addition they also do not have excess data charges, rather customers are upgraded to a higher level of usage for the remainder of the month at a small additional cost.

The Optus Sim Only Plan – $35 buys unlimited calls and messaging plus 1.5GB of Optus 4G data. Run out of data and a further $10 will buy you 1GB (up to a max of 60GB).

The $45 Plan buys you unlimited calls/TXT and MMS and 4GB data with increments per KB. If you overuse your data, $10 will buy you 1GB (up to a max of 60GB). All plans come with unlimited 1800 calls, TXT/MMS and voicemail diversions and deposits. Also included is 150 minutes of international call time. The $60 Plan offer has unlimited calls/TXT/MMS and 8GB data. Spend over your 8GB in data and for $10, you buy 1GB. Also included is 300 minutes of international talk time. One extra which Optus offers with these plans is unlimited BIS eg Blackberry email and Blackberry browser.

The $45 and $60 Sim Only plans now also come with a 150 minute or 300 minute international call allowance. Calls can be made to the following international destinations: Austria, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Canada, Chile, China, Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Indonesia, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Pakistan, Philippines, Poland, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom, USA and Vietnam.
