Terms and conditions


Is there a contract?

Can I use my own number?
Yes, you can bring your number across by providing your account details from your current service provider when you activate your SIM.

How long does this special last?
The special price of $18/month is available for 12 months.
After 12 months the plan will revert back to the standard price of $25/month.

What happens when I run out of data?
Unlike many plans on the market which charges excess data @ $10/GB block, E.Tel’s Big Data Plan only charges excess data at a fair rate of $0.01 per MB (billed in KB increments). e.g. If your excess data is 200 MB (0.2GB), it will only cost $2, NOT $10.

Excess minutes to these destinations are charged at its standard rate.
Calls to destinations not in this list are not included and will be charged separately, please see here for rates.

What's the billing cycle and charge?
Our billing cycle is on per calendar month basis (from the first date to the end of each month). Monthly plan fee is charged in advanced.
If your first billing-period is less than one calendar billing month, the
respective plan fee and call/data allowances will be auto-adjusted on a pro-rata basis.

    Not a bad deal


    The 180 days prepaid deal is not bad too

      Read the paragraph before yours:

      Following your request to discontinue the Service, to retain access to the service number, you must:
      1. Port your Service Number to another telecommunications carrier; OR
      2. Begin a new Service Agreement with us for the service number.

      The section you pointed out is for all other cases which means not including porting out.

      I have no idea why you've cut the relevant information out right before that!

      "Following your request to discontinue the Service, to retain access to the service number, you must:

      2. Begin a new Service Agreement with us for the service number."

    Post paid which is always a bit of a worry.

    Can anyone start a MVNO these days? Website looks quite dodgy. Perhaps we should start an OzMoBile…


    From critical information summary: Porting Policy: If you applied for a new number with E.Tel, a $20 Port out Handling Fee applies if you port the
    service away to another provider within 6 months. This fee does NOT apply if you ported-in your number or if
    you disconnect your service.

    How do these small mobile companies offer good value and make profit?

  • +9 votes

    My wife is now using etel when they had the $19 offer at the start of the year. It took 4 days for the SIM card to come via mail. It took another 5 business days to port your number, so factor that in. Also, the etel customer service is crap. We rang them and if you’re super luck, you will talk to someone. If not, you have to leave your number and they will call you back. You can’t be in a queue. They ring back at random times and if you miss their call, you’ll have to start the process again. Once ported and working, it is fine, but fingers crossed you don’t run into trouble.

      I am currently with belong and the customer service is also non existent


      Any clues who has good service on the Optus network ?

      We have to port From Telstra due to coverage but don’t want to land with a bad provider and can’t afford down time on mobile


      any idea on how to check the usage etc pls?
      specifically the 100min for international.

    Has anyone tried this supplier before? do they have any app to monitor the data usage? without a proper app, it seems a bit dodgy and painful to argue about the extra charge.

    Is there international roaming option? Not a must now, but it will be at some point.


    I worry about using small companies, since the Buzz Telco fiasco.

    Any MVNO offering Apple Watch sims or is it just the big boys?

      Just Vodafone, Telstra and Optus. Otherwise I would switch in a heartbeat… but can’t live without 4g connection on my watch anymore for my daily runs/walks.

        Same - i've used it even more now with apple music and running


          I was wondering, wouldn’t it work out cheaper to just add a separate esim plan on the Apple Watch (such as the Telstra $15) and then a separate sim on your mobile?

    Good deal, beats the popular Boost $150 deal


      Godd deal
      However you can'compare as these are two different service providers
      Internnation calling got merits as more countries are included in this deal,but no unlimited ISD calls


    Can I order the sim now or have to wait until 31/5 to order. It is quite ricky with 31/6 due date due to Covid19 problem


      You should order now. It says you have until 30/06 to activate so the sooner you receive it the better. You can then activate whenever before end of June


    Anyone know if you can tether/hotspot?

    They also sell hand sanitiser, manuka honey and face masks.. talk about opportunists


    Very competitive deal if you don't need more international minutes.

    If this is a (the) wholesale network of whichever provider, note that it won't have volte, vowifi or RCS messaging.


    Postpaid - if they do credit check your credit rating will drop.


      Only on credit sites that show you a score which Banks dont actually use


        What system do banks use?

        • +1 vote

          Just what you provide payslips, proof of share ownership, equity or rental income you have, other evidence of other sources of income and of course prior loan defaults just because you apply for a mobile phone plan and it decreased your rating on a credit website doesn't mean sh1t to banks


    Looks like the code doesn't reduce it to $18 anymore, can only get $25, anyone else having this issue?


    I just signed up with circle.life but I've not received sim card yet. Can I ignore that and go with this one? They got my credit card details as well.


      Not sure. If you have already signed up you’ll have to port out after you stay the month maybe?


    Why is this expired? It still works


    Ordered my sim on the weekend and just received it today. So far postage has been quick
