    Just a note that it would probably be better to buy the 365 day one rather than the 180 day one.

    365 day is 365$ + $1 for the HTC explorer + 5GB data per month.
    180 day is $248 + 4.5GB data per month (HTC explorer included).

      Just to clarify the above:

      -> Both options get you the same phone (htc explorer)

      meaning it comes down to this:

      365 days of service with 5gb each month @ $366 —> Cost per day = $1.00
      180 days of service with 4.5gb ea month @ $248 —> Cost per day = @1.38

      Difference in initial investment is 366-248 = $118, but for that you get 6 months more service and 500 mb extra every month.

      Clear now :)

          The 365 days isn't on groupon, that's why I provided a link for the 365 days + a link for the $1 HTC explorer (only $1 with the 365 day deal).

    • +1 vote

      So that I understand your comments, the 365 deal is not a part of the groupon offer, yeah? So if we prefer the 365 deal we can happily ignore groupons time pressured honeytrap?

      I'm considering the 365 deal but I'm not in a mega rush.

    Can I port in my prepaid number from amalysim?

    •  

      You should be able to.

    • -1 vote

      Though I cannot see it being possible to port services "online". blergh…

      Data value essentially the same compared to woolworths mobile:
      133MB/day, 111MB/day much the same; optus was first to do 5gb.

      And once redeemed, date to activated by? - can't find that detail.

      +Everyone's aware of the third rate coverage n/w.. back of Optus, Tlestr

      • +3 votes

        Except Redbull are using the Vodafone network.

        •  

          poor wording; I meant to say third place being back of the pack, being at the rear of: no.2-Optus and no.1-Telstra.

        •  

          If so, is it free to call from Vodafone to Redbull mobile ?

          Daver - not sure why you scored 4 negs on this comment above! (I just gave you a plus to show not me!)

        Looks like some people didn't look hard enough, porting a number is there on the activation page:

        you can port your number, i did it 3 days back from Optus to RedBull Mobile.

          Woo Hoo… thanks guys for putting in the effort to do the research… I love being able rely on others to do the "leg work" - it saves me sooo much time… YOU'RE THE BEST!!

        •  

          Took us only a few hrs from porting THREE (postpaid) -> RBM (Prepaid)

        •  

          You're welcome lady. All in the fingers, they do the walking.

  •  

    Is there a option for coninuance of plan after 60day for 10 buck plan?

    •  

      I think you have to pay full price after that (Like amaysim)

      •  

        Is not good, sigh, leh

        •  

          8 gb data for $10, 1gb = $1.25
          1300 / 1800 number also included

        •  

          To be honest, to use up 8GB data in 60 days you would have to run a download every night or something like that.

        •  

          1 hr of internet radio is ~ 10 MB, 10 hrs a day is ~6GB for 60 days, apart from that there is browsing and checking eMails

          i was using optus $3(and $2) plan for a year(total more than $600), just switched to RedBull 2 days back to check the signal in my area…

        •  

          Usage depends what you are using the SIM in. In a 3G tablet, I easily go though 5G/45 days on Woolies Mobile. Tethering your phone can go through plenty.

    • +1 vote

      the plan is $75 for 60 days, now we are getting the 60 days voucher/sim for $10.

      at the same time if you would like to continue, you can chouse any of the access recharge vouchers.

      best option i can see,
      get a $10 sim pack now(60 days), and buy a 365 recharge voucher(which should be valid form more than 3 months) with HTC explorer(offer till april or stock ). once the 60 days is over recharge with the 365

      425 days + HTC explorer = 375.

      other vouchers for Redbull are as below.

      $10 = 7 days
      $20 = 15 days
      $39 = 30 days
      $75 = 60 days
      $199 = 180 days
      $365 = 365 days

        RB may find few takers (talkers?) for 37.50/mo regular;
        last status, VF were hemorrhaging clients. Thats why they are forced to run deep specials.

        Thanks for the Info,
        Quick question when they say 1300 numbers included, do they also include 13 numbers
        like 131171 (Vicroads)

        •  

          yes should say 13 numbers

  •  

    Or we only 60day?

    •  

      prepaid 60 days, if you want continue then need to pay $75, it is good for your back up or just use once the sim card, the rule said you only can purchase one per person

      •  

        But 60 days for $10 ~
        Already better than the amaysim deal $10 for 30 days.
        Wish I can buy a few more for spare

        •  

          yeah thats what my plan, not sure if i can make several account, but deliver to the same address, hmmm seems my plan to obvious

        •  

          May possible to order of multiple sim card, lei.

        •  

          I'm sure you can buy as many as you want, but good luck activating the "spares"

  • +2 votes

    Was interested as a spare but it says that the offer is valid to 29th March 2012 but that the SIM could take 3 weeks to deliver.

    •  

      you have to redeem = ask them to deliver the sim card to your place till 29 march, then take another 3 weeks to deliver to your place, it doesn't said when you have to activate your sim card

      •  

        Yes! I guess you can activate whatever you like after you receive the SIM pack.
        Just remember to redeem it before 29/3

      •  

        yes.. you have to activate it within 6 months

        "•Red bull MOBILE SIM Starter Pack must be activate 6 months from date of purchase"

        •  

          "You have 90 days to activate your Red Bull MOBILE SIM Starter Pack" under Groupon - Fine Print

        •  

          Earlier purchases had different T&C. Lucky I have a copy of them before they changed.

    •  

      If I understand your statement correctly, you are saying there's no point in purchasing the offer as it will be invalid if it arrives after 29th March (i.e. 3 weeks from today = 6th April)? If so, I think you may have misunderstood (or I have)? The sim card will be valid once it is activated… that could be today, next week, next year… please correct me if I am wrong?
      Oh… just saw comment above… sim has to be activated before 29th March - ok?

      •  

        6 months or 90 days, depending on what your voucher says.

  •  

    Edit: as above
    beat me by 5 sec.

  •  

    does anyone know if can we use this directly in ipad as well?

    •

      •  

        LOL Current automated email response says will take 3 days to respond. Groupon did not reply to numerous emails from me after 2 weeks. Had to ring & was on hold on call to Sydney for 15 min. No freecall number. That was 2 weeks ago.

    •  

      Register a second Groupon account in the other persons name, use the referal email and get $10 credit when you buy the second one via the referal link. So effectively FREE, though the $10 credit won't apply to that purchase (7 day delay I believe).

  •  

    if anyone calls or knows for certain when we have to activate this sim card by please do lets us know? not like the last amaysim lifehacker deal they already came activated once you purchased the sim. since i still got data on amaysim and delivery can be up to 3 weeks ill most likely redeem it on 29 march. i think its via the vodaphone network which is poor where i live. its good value for money so i might give it try.

    •  

      The SIM is not activated when you get it. You will need to goto the RBM website to activate and port.

    •  

      You mean they don't TELL us which network it's on…?!?

      •  

        RedBullMobile Network (which is thru Vodaphone)

      That's a relief SIM can be activated/ported via RBM site. More efficient than being instructed to dial call center number for this purpose.

      •  

        daver yep I ported a phone from 3 to RBM only 2 days ago and it was efficient and worked fine.

        RBM uses vodafone networks. On the phone it shows up as "Red Bull MOBILE"

        • +1 vote

          I'm actually on the Woolies plan now, with stocked up credits till November. How does that compare with the Amaysim?

        • +1 vote

          Of course you should look for yourself as I'm not looking at the sites as I type this (ie. it's from memory but you can go look you know) but IMO Amaysim is far better value except in very specific circumstances:

          Woolies: $29.99 = $250 to any Optus + $250 to any other network (except Pivotel).

          Calls have a massive flagfall (0.89c ?) and are charged at a very high rate. I worked out I'd be lucky to get 4 hours talk time a month if I didn't use SMS. 1300/1800 numbers cost extra.

          SMS are 0.30c each.

          5GB data = importantly data is measured in 10MB chunks which makes this a lot less attractive than it may seem. You can sync your gmail and use 10MB.

          Lasts 45 days.

          Amaysim: $39.99 = unlimited calls to any network and includes 1300/1800 numbers.

          unlimited SMS

          4GB data = can't remember what chunks are measured in but it was "reasonable" as opposed to Woolies.

          Lasts 30 days.

          Both providers use Optus backhaul - network is occasionally very fast but mostly quite slow with regular dropouts. This will depend on your area of course but even in town (Adelaide) this is the case for me with the burbs being worse. Neither provide data services outside AU if you travel.

          If customer service is important to you - and this means wasting hours of your life in some circumstances waiting for seemingly routine and simple things to be done - the Amaysim is a nobrainer, they have an AU call centre as I understand.

          Woolworths call centre is so bad you'd probably think I was exaggerating but think having to constantly ask support to repeat things due to thick accents, being lied to about what has previously occurred with other support staff doing simple things like activating SIMs so they dont look bad, not giving you reference numbers to show that verbal contracts have occurred (which take 30 minutes to complete thanks to asking to them to repeat everything etc) so you have to do the whole thing again (that was a good day that one) … I could go on haha but I hope you get the picture.

        Mobile Virtual Network Operator http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MVNO

        They buy bandwidth from say Optus or Vodafone (I believe there are a couple using Telstra, too lazy to search) and run their own number management, accounts and billing. As opposed to a thin branding like Wooliesmobile where you go on the Optus site to manage your account.

        There's nothing wrong with being a MVNO. In fact only a few of the network providers run their own infrastructure; it's expensive.

      you can get them unlocked free if you are on a plan not matter what they tell you. i am on the $5 telechoice deal and got most of mine unlocked with some difficulty and arguing on the phone. you need speak to someone who is aware of the deal. tell them it was a special promo deal and that you got the prepaid phone at the time of signing the contract thus they need to unlock it for free not $80. otherwise just activate the prepaid sim that came with it and wait 6 months to unlock free. make sure you get their name incase they do go back on their word and charge you $80 like they did to me. but i got it refunded yesterday as i kept notes.

    Using RBM right now, seems alright to me.

    Thinking of replacing my nephew's htc t8285 with this one but want him to use Optus/Telstra network as his area has poor coverage with vodafone. The sim can go to dad as he made heaps of calls and he is on justmobile sim any way which is also voda so it should be ok

    have no prob redeeming 2 vouchers using the same contact details.

    According to redbull mobile TOC, recharge voucher will expire 6 months after the date of purchase.

    "The SIM Starter Pack and recharge voucher you are purchasing must be activated within six months of the date on the proof of purchase for the SIM Starter Pack and recharge voucher. If the SIM Starter Pack and recharge voucher is not activated in this time, the recharge voucher will expire and you will forfeit the value of the recharge voucher."
