  • Optus network. Good deal though.

  • The new mobile company for the clergy… 100 mins to Vatican City. There are some strange inclusions there.

  • Boost mobile still cheaper with annual pack having free international calls to 25 countries and on Telstra network. For data lovers this might be better.

    • Indeed, but no contract here so you can churn after 8 months for $120 total which is not paid as a lump sum.

      • I would take that Boost deal any day, but in my house in metro Gold Coast phone gets 3/4 bars Vodafone, 2/4 bars Optus and 0-1/4 bars Telstra. This deal looks decent as an alternative

  • Looks like part of Optusbusual zone 1 countries are listed partly but big price difference from Optus themselves

    Big Question: like Optus does one get charged $10 per gb going over there data limit inclusions? Bonus if it just stops or speed limited though i doubt very much this would be the case, im guessing this is a post paid plan?

    • Scroll down, it’s right there on the same page that the deal is linked to…

      • What happens when I run out of data?
      Unlike many plans on the market which charges excess data at $10 per 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.
      To avoid excess usage, try to connect to WiFi wherever it is available and check your usage at www.etel.com.au/account regularly

  • 250GB per month?

  • Post paid, that's a no from me

  • Perfect deal for me. Coming off Boost in Nov and this is much cheaper if you just dont unlimited international calls.

  • How much you have to pay upfront to order the sim? And can we port from optus to their network and retain our existing phone number?

    • "Free Delivery
      We will send the SIM card to you via Australia Post for free. However if you need it urgently, we also offer an express post service with a small charge."

      Sim is free delivery but they xharge $15 per month fees when ordering sim.

      • "Sim is free delivery but they xharge $15 per month fees when ordering sim."

        Strange practise. Means if you just order but never actually end up using it, they've pocket $15..

  • Keep in mind that they charged excess data fees if you go over the 25GB.

    Unlike many plans on the market which charges excess data at $10 per 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.

    • I still get stung if i go over my telstra data $10 for 1GB - "we can't turn that feature off…" - my hate is on for greedy Telstra - as the app doesn't update 100%, by the time I realise I've already been charged - so I can't use all my data allowance for fear of being charged another $10… grr

  • Anybody still on Circles.life? I'm tempted to switch to this one. Cheaper, more data, international calls. But I heard porting out from circles is a hassle.

    • I ported out from Circles on the 1st of Oct to that JB 500 voucher deal and it took around 8 hours for the porting to be completed, which was far more waiting time for me as my previous port out and in with other Carriers almost happen instantly, other than that, no complaint.

    • I ported out back around when they launched (after their 1 month offer) and it was instant for me.

    • I bought a Amaysim sim card, activated in very quickly, then 2 days later activated circles - took overnight but works perfectly fine.

  • any international roaming on etel?

  • do they perform a credit check?

  • Thanks. Ordered one. International minutes attracted me.

  • No voicemail service by default. (Activation required?)
    No call waiting service.(Activation required?)
    MMS charged at 10c extra incoming and outgoing.(need to activate by calling them, disabled by default)
    5 days outage on your SIM if you are transferring your number(might take longer).
    No app or data usage monitor.(still can restrict it via phone though)

    Using this for about a month now.
    The first 3 is pissing me off. Customer service seems to be alright though.

    • Outage shouldn't happen if you transfer from Telstra or Vodafone sim first.

      Voicemail goes to MMS recording which is great IMO.

      Call waiting I have still.

      • "machej" What do you mean "voicemailgoes to MMS"? you mean SMS maybe?

        • No, MMS. It's an SMS with audio recording in it. (Ie. A multi media SMS)

          • @machej: Thanks for clear explanation. I actually prefer those "call catcher type" messages to Voicemail anyway.

            Still on the fence for this deal as I'm not sure I want Optus reception whils on the road, maybe my Aldi/Part Telstra

            Network will not be much better. Giving up free MMS in/out for extra 22gb data both for $15 per month. Don't use lot's

            of data on my main number calling/txt use phone, prefer using a second phone for data internet so keep battary full.

            No need for international calls currently. Hmm

    • What do you mean by 5 days outage? I will changing from Boost. So my service will be out for 5 days when porting to E. Tel.

    • There warning over data sms are over 48hr late and there on line app also. So hard to manage data usage if you want to use the full allocated limit.

    • MMS not being included is a biggie for me.

  • I bought this one but have been charged 15.30$ from my credit card, anyone knows why?

  • Keep in mind that porting to E.Tel and keeping your own number can take 3 to 7 days. Many reviews on Google are 1/5 stars for poor service. But I suppose you get what you pay for.

  • I used them for about 2 months…. My only issue was the number porting took more than 5 days!

    Pretty no frills, 25 GB of data is pretty good for $15 PM.

    • Were you out of service for 5 days or is the down-time very small but the porting takes 5 days?

      • Porting took 5 days, not out of service. It's always best to port from a different provider to avoid complications. If you use Optus now, port to a $2 Vodafone sim first and then port to Etel to ensure it's automated rather than an internal Optus port.

  • can i get two of these plans as i use 2 phones?

  • randy for this bargain!

  • I was charged $15 for the first month on top of the $15 for the sim.. credited very quickly after I emailed support but be weary of it

    • They stuffed up my first month too but after that it's been spot on with the discount. Might just be their system can't prorata.

  • ported mine today, Their customer service is surprisingly amazing.

  • Have been waiting 4 days now for my mother's phone to port from Aldi. Anyone else have similar experiences?
