      this deal was supposed to end last month. they just kept the price the same though and removes the ends in x days bit. i would be pretty certain they will do the same this time too. Ive been using it now for 2 months and its been really good. Ported from Tpg.

    dam you voda network! else id be all over this.

    Wait does this cut data off once 5gb has been reached like Kogan? If so this is a very very good deal. Or is this a bulk 60gb all at once..

    Great deal, Vodafone is great in the larger centres, but in the country, not too flash.

    The only problem is international call - terrible quality

    • +3 votes

      Vodafone does some weird stuff in my case. When I make an international call, the recipient receives a call from a local number and not from my number. So its looks like they are doing some kind of conversion and this leads to poor quality. Often some random person will pick up too although I have dialled the same number. I am with TPG which uses the Vodafone network.

      • +3 votes

        They use lower grade (to save cost) international connections, in which the international carriers don't provide "premium services" like calling number identification. Even worse, in some cases, the other end might use some kinds of VoIP boxes to make those calls "locals" to save more cost, so the calling number is lost.

        Optus (and their MVNOs) give much better international calls.

        •  

          Unfortunately Optus has poor network where I live. Almost no network inside the house. Had to go to the backyard to make calls. At least that's how it was until TPG switched to the Vodafone network. Haven't checked recently if its improved or not. So I guess something is better than nothing. Have been using skype as a work around for international calling.

      yea, I reckon the prices of mobile connectivity is falling so fast I would never lock myself in a yearly contract now.

      I guess the other way to think of it is, the reason why the telcos are offering it, is coz they know prices are coming down, so better to lock people in at better prices now is better for them.

      I say this "deal" will be trumped by something else sooner than later. So no deal for me, gotta be month to month.

    It's not 250 international minutes, but $5 for international calls. If your destination is only 2c/min, great, but otherwise can be much fewer minutes. Was only 18 minutes for the place I looked up!

    I'm using Kogan right now, have to say the Vodafone signal coverage is terrible at where I live(Brisbane west) compared to Telstra. I find my phone always under 3G condition.

    The main thing that has stopped me from going for one of these cheap deals like Lebara / Kogan / Jeenee is that there is no international roaming (mainly to receive sms from companies who use sms for credit card use confirmation / banking authentication etc), but am thinking I might be able to get around it with the following?

    • Port my main current Voda number to Lebara
    • Buy an Amaysim PAYG $10 / 365 day plan (looks like they have international roaming)

    https://www.amaysim.com.au/plans/mobile-plans/as-you-go

    • Register the Amaysim number to my banks etc to receive sms when overseas
    • Stick both sims in my dual sim phone (Moto G4 Plus) or just stick the Amaysim one in spare phone to take when OS

    Wishful thinking, or will this work?

        Good point. Just did an online chat with Amaysim, and they said there is no deposit or anything needed to activate roaming, so should be ok.

          Yup I've been with Amaysim before, and you can activate the roaming instantly from your customer dashboard. You don't even need to contact support.

    Meh - I still prefer the monthly shuffle.

    1) There's always a better deal around the corner
    2) There's always a month where you exceed your data allowance, then you're locked into living on wifi or paying $10/gb for excess
    3) There's always periods where "network" upgrades are pending and I get poor performance around my home or work

    Should i get both 30days Unlimited 5GB for $4.9 + Long term 360 days Unlimited 5GB for $199.
    1. Take advantage of $4.90 for 30days plan 5gb then after 30days
    2. I activate Long Term Unlimited, 5GB, 250 International Minutes, $16.38 Per 30 Days.
    Total 13 months for $203.90 = $15.68 per month.

    What happens if you go over the 5gb/7gb in a month? charges or capped?

      Huh? Doesn't everyone have an 'unlimited' call plan these days?

      Maybe just call your friends instead (of having them call you), if they're still living in the dark ages and have limited calling plans.

      • +2 votes

        Obviously not. Some people have landline phones and unlimited wifi at home and at work, so there is no need to spend $15/month. That's why Aldi and Amaysim sell Pay-As-You-Go sims because not everyone is a poweruser.

        Yeah that works, but what happens if they want to initiate the call with me? I wouldn't say its the dark ages, but it's more like being wise with your money. Spend it on what you need and not wasting it on stuff you don't need. For example, why would you replace a perfectly working 40" 1080P Tv with a 75" 4K Tv when you barely ever watch Tv? Yes, it is somewhat in the 'dark ages', but it is completely unreasonable to think everyone should have a 75" 4k Tv. Not everyone is as rich as you.

        • -1 vote

          Let's analyse your comment for a minute:

          -Your question was about Voda to Voda, so that excludes the landline crowd. Land line calls typically cost more than mobile calls these days, anyway.
          -you can get an unlimited calling plan for $10/month (google it). Probably less if you're willing to switch providers every month.
          -Vodafone/aldi/amaysim PAYG plans don't include unlimited on-network calls as far as I can see.
          -I highly doubt any of your friends that have unlimited on network calls AND spend less than $10/month, but if they are, well-done, you should post the​ plan as a 'deal' on ozb. I'm sure it'll get lots of upvotes.

          Yeah that works, but what happens if they want to initiate the call with me

          Use caller ID to screen the call and call them back, if you're really concerned about saving you're friends money. Or have your friends give you a VoIP call (from their unlimited wifi) or they can send you a whatsapp/email asking you to return a call… List goes on

          I wouldn't say its the dark ages

          Actually being grandfathered into a crappy old plan is the definition of dark ages (in this context). And staying on it for sentimental reasons is the definition of stupidity.

          I'm not sure how your tv upgrade analogy is relevant here.

          Yeah, if your spending less than $10/month on your phone and unlimited on-net calls work for you, then upgrading to the power user​ plan is a waste of money. Otherwise everyone should have unlimited calls on their phone at this point in time.

          @sp00ker:

          On the contrary, let's analyse your comment! Woohoo, this is fun.
          - Wait what? Why does that exclude the landline crowd? Please give better reasoning? 1/10
          - Well I can’t find it, and the fact you didn’t link it or say the company makes me think you’re lying. Also, do you really think the average joe looks through every mobile plan? Seriously. I regularly browse ozbargain and I did my research before this deal, and this is the first time I have heard of it. Maybe that business needs to invest in marketing? Or you should post a deal on it because it’s so great! And thanks for cheating the system with the ‘new customer only’ deals. You are the reason why they will stop it because you think you’re so great and you think you found a loophole.
          - I never said that they did? I provided you with another example which does not correlate with the first one. Chill! And btw if you wanted to know, it was the old prepaid 365 day vodafone plan which gave you free vodafone to vodafone calls.
          I honestly don’t know what you are getting it. You lack cohesiveness
          - Ever heard of flagfalls? lol
          - No its not crappy. It cost $40 a year = $3/month. It’s called not wasting money you don’t need. How many times do you need me to say this omg. I never said anything about sentimental reasons? I love how the only way you try and argue is to make assumptions with no evidence to back up.
          - This analogy makes perfect sense. The main point is that you are saying that because someone doesn’t have an item that supposedly everyone else has, they are all of a sudden in the ‘dark ages’. Did you want me to explain like your five?
          - Yes, everyone should have unlimited calls at this point. Even people who don’t have a phone. Or people who don’t call anyone. Because that’s called conformity.

          Jesus christ you are a special case. Not even sure why I am wasting my time here.

          If you've got a learning disability (and can't read), then I can't help you.

          We're discussing unlimited voda-2-voda calls. Landlines aren't in the picture.

          Well I can’t find it

          Here you go

          If you google "unlimited sim only plan" it's the first sponsored link and first unsponsored (for me anyway), but I guess it's that learning disability coming out again.

          I regularly browse ozbargain and I did my research before this deal, and this is the first time I have heard of it

          Everything is starting to make sense now … dyslexia …

          Or you should post a deal on it because it’s so great!

          It's a s**t deal, because I'm happy changing providers every month and spend much less than $10/month. It's also sh*t because it only include 1GB of data, which is useless for most people, so this lebara deal is better.

          And thanks for cheating the system with the ‘new customer only’ deals.

          Are you seriously using this line, after your rant about saving money? Telcos can easily put an end to customers changing providers every month (you have to supply ID every time to sign up). They choose not too. There's nothing wrong with switching providers every month.

          Ever heard of flagfalls? lol

          Your friend could also hang up after 1 call and leave you a missed call notification.

          No its not crappy. It cost $40 a year = $3/month

          Sure, if the only people you call are on Vodafone.

          The main point is that you are saying that because someone doesn’t have an item that supposedly everyone else has, they are all of a sudden in the ‘dark ages’

          Um - duh - yes, that's what 'dark ages' means. You're comparison with a 40" vs 75" TV is stupid, because everyone doesn't have a 40" TV, let alone a 75" TV, but yes, some people with older TVs (eg analog) are in the the 'dark ages'.

          Yes, everyone should have unlimited calls at this point.

          Glad you agree.

          Even people who don’t have a phone

          That's right, you might still opt for a unlimited call plan, because of the included data and use that SIM card in a tablet/modem/etc. I actually have several unlimited call plans active at any point in time, just to use in such devices.

    I think we'll begin to see some bargain 5GB plans bulk deals like this turning up because 5GB/month is no longer the king it was a few years back. Lots of people demanding well over 10GB/month now and prices are tumbling.

    Not saying its not a good deal but it's been around on and off for quite some time now with Lebara, they'll probably extend it too. Hoping for a slightly cheaper deal before pulling the trigger.

  •  

    Hmmm this seems quite tempting. My Kogan 12mo deal is coming to an end (promo rate), don't want to renew at the full rack rate

    Lebara also gives you a bit of free international minutes. My husband was happy with them but unfortunately we had already bought Kogan for 1 year

    Picked up a simcard at Woolies for 80cents down from 2 dollars probably should have purchased the simcard online and voucher then ported my number to make use of the 4.90 first month. But didn't realize I could purchase it as a voucher and redeem it later at first glance I was afraid I would miss out on the 4 days left on this bargain and didnt want to wait for a simcard to arrive I guess

    Moving from TPGs old grandfathered 16.99 plan to this as I am constantly getting close to the 1.5 gig monthly limit

      If the Vodafone network is decent enough in your area, it'd definetly be worth getting the 5gig one, great deal for 20 bucks a month. I think you'll be quite happy with a bit more freedom.

    In plain english what does this mean?
    "13, 1300 and 1800 numbers and other Australian telephone numbers as specified on Our Website from time to time"

    Lebara Services Description

    I can call these numbers every so often? Random moments?

    •  

      The 'from time to time' is just a legal thing to say 'and any other numbers we decide to give for free in promos etc but only when we say they're free' - the 1800 etc numbers are before that statement and would always be free

  •  

    Good deal, as good as aldi 249 for a year, if you don't need telstra

  •  

    Lebara and kogan both use Voda network? That's surprising. I ported over from kogan prepaid to lebara prepaid a few days ago and it took less than half an hr.

  •  

    So Lebara VS Kogan is probably much of a muchness? Looking to go the 5GB 365 deal, and the only real difference seems to be Kogan being $1 more expensive a month.

    •  

      You also get $5 to spend in international minutes or sms. I think this means 100 minutes to call Europe.

    I trialled Lebara for a month before buying the one year deal. I live all the way in Pakenham and do one hour conference calls on the train all the way to the city and haven't had any drop outs.

    Quick note that 4G on the iPhone 7 is not supported by Apple. You need to manually force it to LTE. iOS gives you a warning when you do saying 'This mobile network has not been certified by the service provider for LTE on iPhone'. So I'm sticking with 3G for now and it has been pretty stable and reliable. Coming from years of Telstra 4G use, the web pages load times are almost identical. The only area where It takes a bit more time is when you download slightly larger files like podcasts.
