    From the FAQ:

    Why will I get less than 100GB in my first month?
    Your 100GB plan is made up of the 20GB Base Data (from our 20GB Monthly Plan) and 80GB of Bonus Data.

    For FAQ on 100GB landing page, can we update the 2nd paragraph to this:The 20GB Base Data is pro-rated to the date you activate your SIM card in the month. The 80GB Bonus Data will not be pro-rated. Hence, your full data allocation for your first month will be between 80GB – 100GB.

    e.g If you activate on the 16th of November (mid-month), you will receive 90GB of data (10GB prorated base data + 80GB bonus data) in your first month.

    I ordered a 4 month free sim but not yet activated. I wonder if i can sign up for this instead?

    •  

      nothing stopping you from doing so when you have got under 4 services prepaid . but maybe the angle you're coming from is that you requested a PORT / number transfer - speak to the customer rep @ circles - they've been pretty good in responding so far imho - but porting is a two way issue = so if your current provider doesn't allow the port then it won't go through… so just try your luck! :)

    •  

      Live chat said they can cancel my order so that I can re-order with the 100GBFOR28.

  •  

    could you get a data share sim for this?

  •  

    This looks good. I will use this sim with data modem.

    Tempting!.. Thanks OP!

    Has anyone had any experience with Circles.life?
    Would you recommend them? (or not?)

    •  

      I find them ok… noticably slower than boost but ok

      They're okay. Network reception bad at my area (bad as in no signal bad), no VoLTE, fine around city, hit or miss on the train… Used it for 2 months, ported to telstra S10e 99 deal, going back to circles again but on the $18/M deal. 23GB is enough for me

      •  

        The $18 a month deal sounds great as you can add 20gb more for only $10!

        •  

          So wouldn’t that make it $28 a month for only 43 gig? Doh!

          • +1 vote

            @rimwar: Yes, thats for people like me that might only use more than 20gb a month twice a year.

            • -2 votes

              @zacsg1: What? Kogan is $5 for 40GB mate. That's double the price for a quarter of the data.

              •  

                @Zazer: I don't get it either. Convenience I guess? (No need to change/check remaining Kogan data or spend 3 minutes ordering the next SIM/activation code!?)

                For those wondering what we're referring to:

                Personally I get the dirt-cheapest phone SIM (usually Amaysim) posted here (one that includes some data) for activating the Kogan SIMs (in case I forget to activate the next SIM, before the previous SIM runs out of data).

                Why?

                • For 6 months you might only use 10GB or less. You only paid $4.90 per month.
                • Month 7 you use 39GB. You still only only $4.90.
                • Month 8 you use all 40GB of SIM 1 in two weeks. You order another SIM/activation code. So you got 80GB for (2x $4.90) = $9.80.
                • Month 9 you use 1x 40GB Kogan SIM every week for 4x weeks. You paid $19.60 for 160GB.
                • Next 6 months you only use 10GB again. You're back to $4.90.
                •  

                  @GregMonarch: And they don't stop you using promotional codes again and again, with the same ID?

                  • +3 votes

                    @JohnHowardsEyebrows: Nope. Not yet at least. I use a SIM about every 2 weeks. I've deliberately used the same email, name, address, etc. for dozens of SIMs to test it. The only 'restriction' is the number of times in recent succession you use the same credit/debit card. You can ORDER the SIM with the same card/account forever. But if you use the same one I think it's 5 times in a row in the same 30 or 60 days to ACTIVATE the next SIM, the site rejects payment and asks for a different payment method. I have a few bank accounts. So I just use account 1 to activate SIM 1, account 2 for SIM 2, etc. then loop them again so none get 'blocked' (which resets after a few weeks anyway).

                    Just keep in mind you have to track data used, or you can run out of data unexpectedly - which means you then need other internet access to activate the next SIM. I login every few days to check and if data is low I order the next SIM/code. But I also buy the dirt cheap phone SIMs on here (like Amaysim) which comes with some data for when I forget/run out unexpectedly - and use those to go online to activate the next Kogan SIM. Right after activating I order the next one so I always have a spare SIM on-hand.

                    The activation codes arrive in your inbox quite fast in business hours, but slower if ordering at night/weekends. e.g. 7 to 35 minutes on a weekday into the afternoon, or the longest I've waited was about 4.5 hours when I ordered early AM on a Sunday morning.

                    If you don't need a permanent phone number, and know you'll use at least 2 SIMs every month - just activate SIM 2 after 1 or 2 weeks, but keep using SIM 1 until it runs out, then switch in SIM 2 because it's already activated. Rinse, repeat.

                      @GregMonarch: Just to add to this, United servos sell Kogan SIM cards. If you're in a hurry you can order the $4.90 / 40gb deal online and use the code they email you with the $2 SIM you just bought from United.

                      This means you don't have to wait however long it takes for the SIM that Kogan post you to get to you to get online.

                      However, when it does arrive, it's still useful. Keep it as a spare.

                    •  

                      @GregMonarch:

                      you then need other internet access to activate the next SIM.

                      Absolute bugbear of mine! With all telco's, apart from Telstra which works fine with no data.

                      You can't use the companies own website when you run out of data!

                      Not to even recharge your own service; or Activate a new one.

                      Sooo stupid!

                      •  

                        @YouWinAgain: Yeah… You can PARTLY use Kogan with a new SIM inserted, and no other internet access. It's like they had it working sometime in the past but then someone forgot to maintain the URLs as they updated the site and 'broke' it.

                    •  

                      @GregMonarch: Sounds cheap. I like it 😁
                      Just ordered the $4.9 starter ok, I've got plenty of Sim cards from previous deals so I'll get it going shortly

      They are great

    •  

      Optus is a bit crap in Sydney so I haven't being enjoying the network much but otherwise Circles is great.

  •  

    dump question: is there any way to keep your existing Optus number with this?

    • +5 votes

      Port number over?

      •  

        sorry my bad should have looked first, thank you so much! :D :D

      •  

        Except it can cause trouble/delays.

        Get a $2 Telstra SIM from the supermarket instead (or by mail for free I think, if you can wait/if this will still be available by the time it arrives). Then port out to the SIM without activating/recharging any Telstra plan. Then port back into this.

  •  

    Was waiting to see what Optus brought out for click frenzy, nice to have a back up if they don't have anything tempting. My existing contract conveniently expires on the 13th.

    Awesome, Im just about to cancel my Telstra $50 month to month deal that I got with my S10e 😉

  •  

    Signal isn't that good in my area (Marrickville) but the previous 4 months free is too good to pass.
    Worth trying for 1 month with this to see if it can actually replace nbn.

  •  

    I was going to get telstra 5g $15 a month data sim with 5gb data then shaped to 1.5mbs after 5gb data used. But this is tempting I just got a $150 boost 12 month sim for $130 and it ported my current number in less than 10 minutes.

  •  

    Wonder if you can access Optus perks on this plan given it is using an optus network? Maybe wishful thinking here but if anyone knows, do tell. Cheers

  • +1 vote

    Does this allow data rollover? I know its 100 gig/mo but can't help not being a tightarse.

  •  

    I have another number with amaysim am I better to change to telstra or Vodafone then to circles life. I heard they stuff it up going optus provider to optus provider.

    •  

      I wasn't aware Vodafone had any quick churn in and back out again, so Telstra: $2 SIM, port number out, port straight back into this.

  •  

    Time to cancel home plan

  •  

    Can you plug this sim to wireless router such as the Huawei B525s? i am thinking to finally cancel my tpg adsl2+ as my nbn is still not ready at my place, which i was told it supposed to be ready June 2018…

  •  

    I was going to jump from cheap deal to cheap deal when my contract runs out next month - but couldn't pass up 100gb for less than 30 a month, especially with effectively a free month from cashback. Now to chuck all my streaming apps up to max video quality!

    d'oh just ordered the 240GB Boost thing last week for home data.

    What is the best plan offering data sharing ?

  •  

    100GB?!When unlimited mobile data plan will come?

    Can we plug this sim to the wifi modem from this deal?(https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/493213)

  •  

    shopback cashback not applicable for —> Customer who cancels the plan before 60 days since activation

    So it'll be $28 for 2 months if you want to make most of the cashback, still great deal

  • +3 votes

    You get a credit check on sign up

  •  

    Just to clarify, will I get 100GB each month? Thinking to disconnect Optus 200GB data package and get this because both uses same network

  •  

    Sounds like a great deal.

    Anyone know if you can turn off excess data? I.e. turn off the tap, rather than pay excess charges ($0.01/MB). I'd rather set and forget and get cut off than pay excess charges.

    • +1 vote

      They give you 3gb if you go over for free! So you should not have to pay extra if you just stop using the phone then.

      •  

        Many thanks. I'm actually asking for a friend. 100gig is so generous that I know a lot of people might use this as an ADSL/NBN replacement. But are unlikely to keep track of their usage.

        Do you know if they give you an alert when you go over?

        Also, correct me if my maths are wrong, but 1 gig over @ $0.01 is $10. So easy for it to add up to something decent if you're binge watching something at around the 99 gig mark!

    • +7 votes

      You can set monthly cap to ZERO so that if you reach the limit after the 3GB for Free the Data stops.

    •  

      If you have an android device just switch on data limiter. easiest way but there isn't any real other way unless you keep an eye on it

  •  

    Anyway, just bought it. Got Shopback $28 tracked email within seconds :D

  •  

    Just to confirm this " no lock in "

    I can cancel after 1 month, or anytime time?

    Sorry for the dumb question, this seems like a really good deal haha

      Yes you can cancel so that you dont get charged $28.

      Correct - they have absolutely no lock-in. However note that if you are using shopback, they will not honor cashback if you cancel before 2 months.
