What type of mobile plan works best for you?

When it comes to picking a mobile plan that’s right for you, there’s a lot to consider. Are you someone who needs a lot of data? Is talk time your highest priority? Or maybe you need to call overseas?

To make the decision making process easier for you, we’ve broken down the different mobile plan types based on different mobile phone needs. To work out how much data you need, it’s a good idea to look at your previous monthly phone bills to see how much data you use every month. When looking for a phone plan, do you want...

 

more data on my mobile phone plan

With smartphones getting smarter and being used for more and more everyday tasks, our use of them becomes more frequent - and with higher use, can come higher data usage. When it comes to getting the most data from your phone plan, there are a few different options you have depending on how much data you need.

Here are a few options from Woolworths Mobile that offer our highest data packs:

 

unlimited calls on my mobile phone plan

For all you chatterboxes out there, unlimited calls are a must for any phone plan. And we’ve got good news for you. Whether you’re after pre or post-paid plan, all Woolworths Mobile plans come with unlimited call time in Australia. Plus, our $30, $40 and $50 pre-paid mobile plans come with unlimited international calls to China, USA, South Korea, India, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, United Kingdom and Indonesia.

to only pay for my mobile plan when I use it

Whether you’ve got kids and need to monitor their mobile use (and budget) or you simply just like to be able to pay for your phone when you need it, a pre-paid plan just might be the choice for you. Here are some benefits of Woolworths Pre-paid Mobile:

  • Unlimited International calls to 10 countries on $30 and above Pre-paid plans

  • Pay for your mobile plan only when you need it

  • Save your unused data with your 15GB Data Bank^, when you recharge before expiry


And one of Woolworths Mobile customers favourite features with our pre-paid plans is that you can use your data bank and move between plans depending on how much data you will need each month. For example: If you’re on a $30 pre-paid plan and have 15GB unused data in your Data Bank, you can switch to a $20 pre-paid plan with 2GB the next month and still have 15GB in your data bank, that’s 17GB. This way you can make the most of your data without breaking the bank^.
